This group is about paddling around the East Bay with a focus on the Oakland/Alameda areas. This group is for people who do not have kayaking gear and/or prefer to kayak with a skilled professional. All trips include the necessary kayaking gear, provide a sea kayaking guide(s), and are suitable for all levels of experience; see each event for specific details. Trips vary in theme from Sunset tours, Kayak & Dine excursions, Family Tours, Wildlife tours, and more; checkout the calendar for more information.
We try to keep the group sizes relatively small so that we can enjoy the outdoors peacefully and manage the groups' safety more efficiently. We generally use double closed cockpit sea kayaks; single seat kayaks are available upon request. You must RSVP and pay the event fee at least 24 hours in advance, no exceptions. Registration includes detailed program information (where to meet, what to bring, etc.) and liability waiver. Once payments are received your registration will be confirmed.
Formally, we offered a variety of trips that were NOT guided tours more so intended for people who had their own kayaking gear. Please visit the new Meet Up group - Alameda Point Kayaking Club for more information.
