Description

Merchant's Description

One of the world's premier water skiing facilities. Sand beach, rest rooms, picnicking and ample parking. A great location to rent for a special event. Rates are available on request. The stadium was the site for the 1932 Olympic Rowing competition and the 1968 Olympic rowing trials. Marine Stadium was recently designated as an official state historic site.

Water skiing is permissible in designated areas only between 8 a.m. and sunset.
Rowing is allowed from sunrise to 8 a.m. Before sunrise and after sunset, rowing is allowed only with the proper running lights and observing the 5 mile per hour speed limit.

The Southern California Speedboat Club (SCSC) has been putting on professional power boat races at Marine Stadium since 1946. SCSC continues that great tradition with the annual SEA FESTIVAL event "The Long Beach Sprint Nationals" held annually in August. Race teams from across the nation converge on the "birthplace" of powerboat racing on the West Coast to try to capture the National Championship at world famous Long Beach Marine Stadium. From flatbottoms to tunnel boats and everything in between the Long Beach Sprint Nationals has become once again a great annual event that local residents and fans alike look forward to at the "stadium".

    Careful not to wander through here on your kayak or Duffy... this area is restricted for skiing and watersports only. You can even get fined so beware.

  • Greg C. on 06/20/12

    Located on the southeastern edge of Long Beach, this water course was created for the 1932 Olympic rowing competition for the Xth Olympiad in LA by dredging and straightening part of Alamitos Bay.
