Trips

 

We offer kayaking trips from San Francisco downtown. Trips include performance gear, touring kayak, instructions, guide on the water.

South Beach Harbor

We offer kayak trips to downtown San Francisco, McCovey Cove, and waterfront landmarks. The condition in this area is mostly calm and suitable for family and beginners. Typically double recreational touring kayaks are used for speed and stability. Single seatouring kayaks are available for strong paddlers.
