The Channel Islands Boating Center (CIBC) opened in April 2013. The CIBC provides educational and recreational opportunities for youth and adults of Ventura County, CSU Channel Islands community and others from around the State. While the main focus of the Center is to teach boating skills and support boaters, the CIBC also provides other educational resources on the local marine environment.
The CIBC is a result of the collaborative efforts by Ventura County, the Ventura County Harbor Department, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the California Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) and CSU Channel Islands. Without the efforts of each of these organizations, the CIBC would not be possible.
