The Mission Bay Aquatic Center was started in 1970 when Glen Brandenburg, an SDSU student at the time, signed up to take a sailing class at the then City run sailing facility. Part of the way through the class, the instructor suddenly stopped showing up to teach and Glen assumed the role as the new instructor. Associated Students of SDSU and UCSD Recreation assumed the lease of the then dilapidated old boathouse in 1975 and the Mission Bay Aquatic Center was born. Since then the Universities have built the facility in to the world reknown program it is today. Now here is the best punch line ever.... drum roll....... Glen Brandenburg is still the MBAC Director.

The Center is located in beautiful Mission Bay Park on the south end of Santa Clara Point. It is perfect for the 15,000 people who took classes last year. Nowhere else in the world can you find such a diverse mix of watersports equipment and instruction under one roof! And what a roof: it's a 24,000 square foot redwood facility with over 13 motorized watercraft, 50 sailboats, 100 surfboards, 25 windsurf boards, 90 kayaks, 40 rowing shells and 1 mission: to ensure a safe, enjoyable watersports experience.

Friendly staff members greet you in the reception area, check you in, and direct you to your class. Afterward you can wait in the lobby lounge area, complete with fireplace, or head to the changing room and lockers to stow your belongings.

Classroom instruction is held in one of our two indoor classrooms, complete with blackboards, projectors and VCR/DVD Televisions. The adjacent grounds provide the perfect complimentary classroom setup where you can enjoy the beautiful Mission Bay scenery while learning what you need to know prior to hitting the water.

This is a fun way to spend the day in San Diego. Learn how to waterski, sail, or drive a motorized boat-- or just rent one of these things, including a kayak.
