Aquatic Adventures

Center Activities is the regional boating safety center for the North Coast and is supported by the California State Parks Division of Boating & Waterways. The Division allocates funds for boating facilities, boating safety education and boating law enforcement throughout California. Center Activities’ aquatics equipment inventory is also funded by Boating & Waterways to enhance boating safety education in Northern California.

Water Safety Requirements: To participate in any Aquatics class you must be "water safe". You must have the ability to swim a short distance using any stroke and be able to tread water for five minutes.

Aquatics Equipment and Rental Program: All aquatic classes include use of boats, boating equipment, personal floatation devices (PFDs), spray jackets and Farmer John wetsuits. Surfing classes include hooded full-body wetsuits, surfboards and booties. Aquatic equipment, not scheduled for use by a Center Activities class, is available through our rental program to qualified persons.
