About The Marina Del Rey Location
Next to LAX, Marina del Rey’s central location makes it easy for individuals across Southern California to enjoy boating without owning. Walk, bike or skate over to neighboring Venice Beach or even boat by the pier. We are just two miles to the heart of Venice Beach – that’s 10 minutes by bicycle and only four miles to Santa Monica – or 20 minutes by bike.
Home to over 5,000 boats, the Marina is a scenic mix of beautiful waterways and colorful boats. Get a more intimate view of the marina by access to complimentary use of our stand up paddle-boards (SUPs) and kayaks (coming soon).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is A Boat Club?
Carefree Boat Club is a private club. This means that our boats are only available to Members. We do not rent or charter our boats. Our members are the only ones with unlimited access to the fleet and they never pay a fee to use the boats.
Is It Truly "Unlimited?"
Yes! Members have true unlimited access to boats. Boat as much as you like.
Is It Worth The Price?
It really is. With membership as little as 1/3 cost of owning a boat, you can cross numerous expenses off your list such as: boat purchase, slip fee, insurance, maintenance, repairs, taxes, towing and winterization.
How Does The Training Work?
All members get as much training as they need on and off the water. "On The Water" training is done with a certified instructor. Training covers CBC processes, general navigation, docking and safety.
Are The Boats Well-Maintained?
Absolutely, in fact, all boats are inspected weekly by the CBC dock staff using a 50 point checklist of safety equipment, hull condition, electronics, and general mechanical items.
