Aquatic Adventures

Come explore the many waterways that Humboldt County has to offer. Kayak or stand-up-paddleboard on Humboldt Bay. Canoe the Mad River Slough. Go sailing out in Big Lagoon. Or discover the North Coast by raft. No matter how you choose to experience Humboldt, an adventure with Center Activities and our Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center, will provide a safe and enjoyable experience lead by our skilled and knowledgeable guides.

Our group activites are offered at great prices and get you on on the water, enjoying nature and making new friends. We are happy to help plan your custom trip. Please fill out our Personalize Trip Request Form for more information and pricing!

Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center 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.
