*Please note that access to indoor and congregating facilities such as seasonal lockers, changing rooms, showers, picnic tables, and indoor classrooms will be restricted in 2021 due to temporary safety protocols.
Community Boating takes pride in our accessible programs and we work hard to be ADA compliant. Renovations to our boathouse in 2011 were done with accessibility in mind. CBI has accessible bathrooms and showers* for men and women. If you need any assistance, please ask us and we will help you in any way we can.
Our dock was renovated in 2011 to ADA standards. It is open to the public during Adult Program and is a great place for learning new skills in our demo boats, hanging out with friends on the picnic tables, or just watching the sunset!
We have two Mercury sailboats mounted on the dock with wheels so they have 360 degrees of rotation. These demo boats are a great tool for demonstrating rigging or to climb aboard and practice your hand-switch during a tack!
Seasonal lockers are located inside on the first floor.* Please ask at the front desk if you are interested, and click here for pricing.
Day lockers can be used free of charge and are located on the dock outdoors. It is highly recommended that you bring a lock to lock your items, as the front desk and the dock house cannot hold any personal possessions. CBI is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Showers* and changing* rooms are located in both the men’s and women’s rest rooms, including ADA accessible stalls are available to members and guests only — no public restrooms.
There is a coin-operated clothes dryer located in bay 5 (where we stow our sails) for your convenience.
Enjoy a picnic lunch after your adventure on the river, or just sit back and watch the hustle and bustle of the dock. Did we mention the sunsets?
CBI has eight indoor* and outdoor classroom spaces of varying sizes, so there is plenty of room for everyone to learn. Classrooms are equipped with a whiteboard and flexible seating. Upstairs classrooms also have digital project capabilities.
The center of operations at CBI is the dockhouse, where you check out boats, look for informal instruction, and sign up for tests. Be sure to check out the dockhouse whiteboard, where you can find important information about classes, weather restrictions, and a helpful dockstaff tip of the day!
