See what's happening on campus
The Academy has installed several web cameras on campus to provide live, streaming video 24/7. Our live streams receive over 5,000 viewers each month.
Watch our cadets perform the “Learn-do-Learn” portion of their education at the bow of the T. S. Kennedy. Cadets use small boats to obtain sea service and engineering watchstanding experience.
MSSEP students can also be seen going out on the RV Zostera to collect research samples.
At the end of the spring semester you can watch our “Senior Swim”, a tradition for graduating seniors to mark the end of their time at the Academy. They can be seen jumping off the pier, swimming to the Kennedy, and kissing the bow.
Hendy Field is the longtime home of Buccaneer baseball. The field has been used for a number of MIAA playoff games, American Legion Baseball games, AAU Tournaments, Babe Ruth Championship Game. The Regiment of Cadets also uses it for activities and intramurals.
A Seaviewer® High Definition SD 6000 camera is maintained at 20 feet below water in the AMS Lab seawater intake bay. The camera is on a custom sensor rack that is moved weekly (and sometimes knocked over by storms). The view is predominantly benthic, with fish (sea perch, stripers, Tautog and other guests) and lobsters active April through January. At night a sea light is on to attract fish, the marine snow is reflected near field and gives the impression of static. It is actually small particles (marine snow) in the water column being driven by the 4 to 5 knot currents.
Tune in every morning Monday through Friday at 0720 to watch our morning formation. Cadets muster to salute the American flag every morning.
Additionally, watch the onboarding and offboarding of the T. S. Kennedy when she is ready to go to sea and when she returns to her homeport of Buzzards Bay. Cadets don’t just go to their holds, they prepare the ship with all the necessary supplies for their six weeks onboard. This includes all food, medical, and supplies for education and maintenance. Cadets participate in safety drills to include Evacuation Drills. The cadets do it all!

Cape Cod Canal
The Cape Cod Canal is an artificial waterway in the U.S. state of Massachusetts connecting Cape Cod Bay in the north to Buzzards Bay in the south, and is part of a heavily used Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Whether it is a private boat, tanker, cruise ship, or military vessel, all pass through the canal. The TS Kennedy can be seen passing through the canal during our training cruises.
The Cape Cod Canal is also home to some of the best fishing in the world.
