This was a fun adventure. We chose the two person kayak on Richardson Bay tour. Our guide, Chris was knowledgeable and made the trip fun. This was my first time kayaking. I would definitely do it again thanks to this great experience.

I LOVED Chris's running commentary on the history of Sausalito, the marine wildlife, and the tidal conditions. His kayaking technique tips were useful also.

  • For $49, you get a two-hour guided kayak tour for one (a $100 value) with booking fee (a $102 total value).

Led through undulating waters by knowledgeable guides, San Francisco Kayak & Adventures’ nautical tour groups glide past picturesque oceanscapes on two-hour tours. In the sturdy, closed-top tandem kayaks, paddlers traverse the San Francisco Bay or Sausalito waterfront on their choice of seven different tours. Morning, midday, and evening tours present a variety of scenic options, passing by the Giants’ stomping ground, the eclectic Richardson Bay houseboat community, or downtown Sausalito. As they float along, the sea-savvy guides point out the various forms of marine life that inhabit the area, including cormorants, harbor seals, pelicans, and the goldfish Davy Jones left in his locker after the school fair.

About San Francisco Kayak & Adventures


Seated in your kayak, you're surrounded by cerulean waters that stretch out into the horizon. To your left, the San Francisco skyline looms in the shimmering afternoon sun. You drift by a raucous Giants game, a village of houseboats, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Led through undulating waters by American Canoe Association– and Wilderness First Aid–certified guides, San Francisco Kayak & Adventures' nautical tour groups traverse the San Francisco Bay or Sausalito waterfront during the day, at sunset, and under the light of the full moon. The guides lead their groups through calm costal waters in sturdy, closed-deck tandem kayaks, which keep legs dry and don't require typical Flintstone-style paddling. The guides regale their group with area history while pointing out local marine life. They only shepherd about eight paddlers to keep tours intimate and personal and customize paddling instruction to the ability levels of the group.

Guides also help visitors explore the natural world on land during hiking excursions between redwood trees in Muir Woods, along a coastal trail in the Tennessee Valley, and past ghost-town buildings at China Camp Village. To expand visitors' wilderness exposure, they also lead adventures such as sailing, rock-climbing, cycling in the city, horseback riding on the beach, and sleeping in phone booths.
