UC Aquatic Center at the Berkeley Marina

Home to Cal Adventures, the UC Aquatic Center is the perfect venue for sailing, windsurfing, paddleboarding, and sea kayaking

Who Can Use It?

The UC Aquatic Center is open to scheduled Cal Adventures classes, as well as our outdoor summer youth camps. Equipment can be rented by those who have completed a Cal Adventures course and/or have shown on-water proficiency.


The UC Aquatic Center is located in the Berkeley Marina at 124 University Ave, Berkeley, CA.

The Marina is easily accessible via public transport. AC Transit’s 51B goes from from South Berkeley to the Marina. The bus stops in front of the Bait Shop directly across the street from our boat yard.

The UC Aquatic Center has a free parking lot with ample parking availability.
