Kayaking in the San Francisco Bay
City Kayak

As far as urban kayaking goes, San Francisco is at the top of any discerning paddler's list. Still haven't taken to the water here? It's time to see your city from a different point of view with City Kayak's two-hour downtown tour.

Save Some Green

Save up to 8% on kayak rentals when you book online. Groups of 10 or more can score even bigger discounts.

Pro Tip

Even on a sunny day, it can get chilly out on the water in the Bay. Pack a light waterproof jacket along with sunglasses and sunblock.


Starting at Pier 40 paddle the cool green waters out front of AT&T Park's McCovey Cove. Within a few minutes you'll shift gears and disappear from city life. Relish the ocean breeze and solitude while floating under the Bay Bridge and by Cupid's Span.

[Owner] Choi says the first hour is a lesson on the water learning the basics of paddling in kayaks that are designed to be extra-stable. Then the guides lead the group on an hour-long trip that takes you around the piers to McCovey Cove and Mission Creek, passing under the Lefty O'Doul drawbridge on Third Street and paddling past Mission Creek Park with quiet houseboats across the way.

It's an easy course, even for a first-time paddler.
