Our fleet of sailboats (12 and 15-foot), Hobie Cats, canoes, and rowboats is available for rent, and Mission Bay Park is popular among swimmers, windsurfers, and jet skiers. Well-worn sidewalks for walking, running, and bicycling stretch for miles. 25 waterfront campsites with fire rings and picnic tables, showers, modern restrooms, overnight dormitories, meeting and program rooms, kitchen and open-air courtyard, amphitheater, and marine biology labs complete this urban oasis, perfect for weekend activities and for our summer resident camp, Camp Fiesta Island.
