At California Watersports on the Carlsbad Lagoon in Carlsbad we offer fun for the entire family. We are the place that you pass when you are on the 5 freeway just south of Tamarack. Everyone knows where it is they just aren’t sure what we do here. Many people even think it is private and they are not allowed to come down here.

Stand up paddleboards seem to be the latest craze and we offer the perfect place for people to try these for the first time. With our rentals going out in the lagoon beginners are not forced to fight the waves and currents. It is the perfect place for anyone to just show up and get some great exercise and try out stand up paddling. Here there is no lugging these big boards to the beach. Just show up hop on and away you go.

We also offer Wakeboarding, waterskiing, and wakeskating lessons. This is where you can get some buddies, give us a call and we take care of the rest. We provide the boat with a driver who instructs and all the equipment you need. If you have never been before, it’s not a problem. Our instructors are trained to teach all levels and have a very high success rate. During your time you can even go tubing! We also offer Free Ride Friday every friday during the summer! For $25 you can show up get a wakeboard ride and then a BBQ dinner. This is a social event designed to give locals the opportunity to easily get on the water.

If you have ever passed the lagoon chances are you have seen the waverunners. This is our most popular item and is one that everyone loves. The waverunners are the perfect way to get your fun, exercise, sun, and adrenaline rush all out of the way in one activity. This is a great place for people who have never driven a waverunner before, as well as the guys who grew up riding them and just need a place to shred up the water.

We strive to make the lagoon a place that locals can enjoy as well as the tourist who are here trying to get a little piece of the San Diego lifestyle. We have so much more to offer such as: kayaks, canoes, peddle boats, aqua cycles, boat rentals, corporate parties, birthday parties etc. you can check out our website at for all of our prices! Don’t let summer slip by, come down to the lagoon and enjoy everything we have to offer!
