Navy looking to increase local SEAL training | KitapSun

Though rarely seen, Navy special operations teams train along local shorelines, trying to avoid detection and not leave a trace.

In 2014, the Navy was granted permission for small SEAL teams to stage water-based training from five state parks — Illahee in Bremerton, Scenic Beach in Seabeck, Blake Island in South Kitsap, and Fort Flagler and Mystery Bay on Marrowstone Island. Now it is proposing to expand training and add sites, changes that require an environmental assessment.

The training would occur on private, public, state or Department of Defense lands along stretches of Puget Sound and the southwestern Washington coast, with permission from property owners or managers.
