Overview

Explore the beautiful and scenic San Francisco Bay in the most eco-friendly way! Take a guided bike trip along the harbor and through the green parks of San Francisco Bay, as your guide points out some of the most iconic places in the city and the history behind them. You’ll then bike across the famous Golden Gate Bridge (and snap a few pictures in front) before you make your way down to the charming Mediterranean-style town of Sausalito. You’ll work your way down to the Bay Model, where you’ll be equipped with all the safety equipment needed to begin your kayaking adventure. Keep your eyes peeled for Harbor seals and sea lions, and enjoy the sight of birds overhead, including pelicans and cormorants. You’ll also paddle by the eclectic houseboat community, where many people make their home on the water.

After a great day of adventure, you’ll make your way back to Sausalito where you can explore on your own, and enjoy a stunning view of the San Francisco skyline.

Kayaking FAQ

SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT KAYAKING

 

WILL I GET WET?

There is often a certain amount of “splash and drip” associated with kayaking, but we provide water-repellent outerwear to keep you as dry as possible. We launch from a dock especially designed for easy kayak access so you will stay dry.

 

WHAT ABOUT CAPSIZING THE KAYAK?

Capsizes are extremely rare. All of our trips take place in stable, sit-on-top, two-person sea kayaks (larger and steadier than river kayaks). The popular image of kayaks bobbing through rapids, and flipping upside-down is common to river kayaking but not ocean kayaking.

 

IS SEA KAYAKING DIFFICULT?

No. Sea kayaking is highly accessible. Our friendly, supportive staff will teach you the simple, necessary skills you need in order to enjoy your time on the water.

 

IS IT STRENUOUS?

Only if you so choose. Ocean kayaks glide easily, with little physical effort. Sea Trek trips are designed so that participant don’t over exert themselves; and travel is at a leisurely pace.

 

WILL I BE SAFE?

Yes. For precautionary purposes all our clients wear a lifejacket (or PFD personal flotation device). For all trips and classes you will be accompanied by an instructor/guide who is trained in first aid. Sea Trek has an unblemished safety record.

 

WILL I NEED ANY SPECIAL GEAR OR EQUIPMENT?

No. Sea Trek provides all the kayaking gear that you need, plus a list of clothing suggestions to keep you comfortable, warm, and dry.

 

CAN CHILDREN PARTICIPATE?

Yes. Children of any age can kayak together with an adult, depending on the skill and confidence of the adult. Sea Trek offers programs (trips and camps) specifically designed for kids.
