3.6 acres of waterfront property with a world of potential for our communities.

Majestic and pristine, Pleasant Bay hasn’t changed much over the years. But its coastline has. The bustling sailing camps that used to dot the waterline have been replaced by private homes. As public access to the shoreline has diminished, so has the community’s connection with the water.

Believing the children in our communities needed a positive place to put their energy, and fueled by the desire to share their love of sailing and boating, a handful of volunteers founded Pleasant Bay Community Boating more than a decade ago with little more than a handful of boats and a pickup truck that served as an office.

Since then our fleet has grown and thousands of our students have experienced the confidence, skill, and joy of sailing.

The Pleasant Bay Community Boating campus is a cornerstone of the community: a multi-generational gathering place for learning, research, recreation and stewardship of the Bay. We are partnering with major academic institutions for marine education, collaborating with community organizations for environmental research, building our programs to enhance recreational and learning opportunities for people with disabilities, and continuing our long tradition of access to, and care for, our shared natural treasure of Pleasant Bay.
