For our San Francisco Bay Group Adventure paddle our normal routine is meeting at Crissy Field's East Beach by the bathrooms. I usually park right at the windsock. We then make a plan usually trying to get up and under the Golden Gate Bridge. We leave the beach promptly at 7:30 am to get the best weather. Once we get up to the Golden Gate Bridge we make a judgement call on the next best step. Some days we may head south if the weather dictates. This is a great way to get some training in for the September Battle of the Bay Race. 

More advanced paddlers can choose to navigate in and around the rocks while the others simply swing wide and enjoy the gorgeous views. You will have an experienced chaperone to help guide you on these paddles. With that said the Crissy paddles you really should have a wetsuit. As always leashes and life jackets are required. We are happy to bring gear to the Crissy Field paddle for you for a flat $40+tax. You will need your own wetsuit or water wear but we will bring the paddle, leash, life jacket, and board. 

Our tuesday morning paddles start April 14th and go every week through August. Please check our calendar the night before to ensure no cancellation. They do occur rarely. 

Feel free to call the San Rafael Shop with any questions at 415-524-8492

We will also roll out Sunday morning paddles at our Redwood City Location starting April 22nd. We meet every Sunday at 7am with a 7:30am push off the dock. This is a great way to get a morning workout and paddle with some of the areas top paddlers. Paddlers of all abilities are welcome and on any paddle craft. Unlmited time rentals are available fot $30+tax.
