Explore your fullest potential with us!

Pleasant Bay Community Boating’s Universal Access Program (UAP) removes traditional barriers to outdoor education faced by people with diverse needs. UAP supports individuals with cognitive or physical challenges, enabling them to realize their potential using adaptive teaching methods and, in the future, adaptive equipment. These programs help affect positive change in participants’ self-confidence and teamwork.

Strong partnerships with a variety of organizations that bring adaptive teaching methods and throngs of eager learners to our shores mean that all local residents and visitors will be able to use and enjoy this majestic body of water.
