MBAC Celebrates Boating Safety Day

In partnership with the California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways we will be kicking off National Safe Boating Week on Sunday, May 17th . Our celebration of Safe Boating Day includes free kayak and paddleboard rentals, a free lifejacket giveaway, and used equipment sale. Be sure to pick up some safe boating materials while you're here.

Mission Bay Aquatic Center is the regional boating safety center for the California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways. We are excited to share our passion for boating safely while having fun with fellow San Diegans.

Boating Safety Day fun will begin at 8am on May 17th where you will be able to pick up a free lifejacket, rent a kayak or paddleboard for free, or browse our used equipment sale. All rentals for the day must be returned by 5:30pm. Bring the entire family down to share in our excitement of boating safely while having a great time.

Meet the Wear It California! Crew at MBAC at 9 a.m. and bring your old unserviceable or outgrown life jacket to trade in for a new, free lifejacket. Supplies are limited, so come early!


All figures are from the U.S. Coast Guard’s 2013 Recreational Boating Safety Statistics, the latest official record of reported recreational boating accidents.
