I'm thinking of getting in a paddle over the Memorial Day weekend. (Have not decided which day, may let the weather dictate). Launching from the Pier 52 boat launch off 3rd Street, in San Francisco. Work against the tide and then enjoy the ride back. Have late lunch at the Ramp. It's a great way to see San Francisco from the water. Will need your own boat, and will need to leave around 8:30. Let me know what you think.
The Bay Area Meetup group for folks enthusiastic about kayaking. A mixture of events that will offer something for every skill level. This Meetup group does not charge fees or dues. Just participate, have fun and expand your skills.
Safety first, an opportunity for everyone to get out on the water and enjoy the many great paddle locations the Bay Area has to offer.
Different Meetups are planned for all levels of experience. Some will launch from areas where rentals are available. Other trips for the more advanced paddlers who have their own equipment.
Kayak camping, kayak geocaching and trips outside of California are all possible.
One safety note:
Unlike some other outdoor activities, kayaking requires a heightened degree of awareness and commitment to safety. While casual participation can be rewarding, please be aware that putting yourself at risk can also put your fellow kayaker's at risk as well. Kayaker's Alliance events are not guided tours, but are instead a get together of like interested people.
