How do I get to the MAC?
The Marina Aquatic Center is located in Marina Del Rey at 14001 Fiji Way. It is accessible by Bus, Bike, and Car.
From the 405 freeway it can be reached by taking the 90 West and then exiting onto Mindanao Way. From Mindanao, turn LEFT onto Admiralty Blvd. Take the next RIGHT onto Fiji Way. Take Fiji Way all the way to the end past the Sheriff/Coast Guard Station, go about 3/4 of the way around the traffic circle and turn right into the driveway for the Villa Venetia apartment building. Follow the drive all the way to the end paralleling the L.A. County bike path until you come to the MAC. Please yield to bikes and pedestrians on the bike path.
If you need to get a ride contact us at MAC@recreation.ucla.edu or 310-823-0048 and we will do our best to connect you with a driver. If you are able to drive someone to a class, please register as a driver at the MAC.
Park at Fisherman's Village ($1/hour or $8 all day) or at Dock 52 when the MAC parking lot is full. Because of the volume of car, bike and pedestrian traffic on the weekends on site parking on Saturdays and Sundays is very limited and participants may need to park at Fisherman's Village or Dock 52. We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding. We strongly encourage carpooling, biking, rollerblading and public transit to get to the MAC.
