Long Beach, CA

The Aquatic Capital of America

Long Beach is hugged by water. Located between the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers, with the Pacific Ocean to the south, the Port of Long Beach to the west, Alamitos Bay to the east, and Marine Stadium and Colorado Lagoon to the northeast - water is everywhere!

Kite surfers love the great ocean breezes found in Long Beach. The calm water of the bay makes for family gatherings, along with open water swimming, kayaking, outrigger canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, boating and more. Marine Stadium was built for the rowing events at the 1932 Olympics, and two large marinas serve the sailing and boating communities. Local pools provide opportunities for swimming, water polo and diving at all levels. The Congressional Cup is one of the top match race competitions in the world of sailing, and the City participates in the festivities leading up to the bi-annual Transpac sailing race to Hawaii. Due to the consistency and strength of the local winds, the 1984 Olympic Games organizers chose Long Beach as the site for the sailing events.

It is widely believed that Long Beach has produced more aquatic Olympians, National Champions, and World Record holders than any other city in the U.S.A
