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.
