Teaching positive life values to youth through boating
Humanity has always believed that water has healing and transformative powers. Throughout time, civilizations have looked to the water for physical harmony, spiritual guidance, and wisdom. Biologist Wallace J. Nichols believes we all have a “blue mind” and that water holds power to unlock untapped potential.

Our Team, Our Stories
“I can’t thank CBC enough for everything they have done for my family. My girls have been with them for years and now it has turned into a steady job for my oldest. They are such good people. They have given my kids an opportunity I would never be able to financially afford & for that I am so thankful.”
“CBC is the best program ever!! My son has been with CBC for years and years. It’s the highlight of his summer. CBC not only teaches about boating and sailing, it teaches one how to respect the ocean, the importance of teamwork, trust and friendship. We want to thank everyone for their dedication, professionalism, passion and hard work. We appreciate everything you do !!”
