Located on the beautiful Eureka waterfront across from Woodley Island Marina, the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center (HBAC) is a multipurpose facility dedicated to providing recreation and education opportunities for the local community, HSU students and staff, and clientele beyond Humboldt County. The HBAC provides rooms to rent for conferences, classes, receptions, and a variety of other events. The facility also hosts a full-scale aquatic equipment rental program, including kayaks, canoes and stand up paddleboards.
Working in partnership with HSU’s Extended Education program and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), the HBAC is home to over 150 classes per year with topics ranging from Shakespeare to gardening. For more information on OLLI and Extended Education classes, please visit them at www.humboldt.edu/olli and www.humboldt.edu/extended.
The HBAC is also proud to house the 2012 and 2014 NCAA Division II national women’s rowing champions. The boat storage, locker rooms, and training room serve as the on-water headquarters for the Humboldt State University Intercollegiate women’s rowing team.
