Helicopter pilots are in constant danger of action stars climbing aboard their crafts and throwing them out; kayakers, however, need only fear falling helicopter pilots. Steer an unstealable vessel with this Groupon.

Before embarking on aquatic tours of the San Francisco Bay, Richardson Bay, or other waters, guides teach participants basic paddling and maneuvering in sit-in tandem touring kayaks. Using waterproof cameras, they snap photos of the tour experience and various forms of marine life that inhabit the area, including cormorants, harbor seals, pelicans, and golden fish sticks. They may also pass sites such as Richardson Bay's houseboat community, McCovey Cove, and AT&T Park. While guides prepare their groups for both kayaking instruction and in-motion picture-taking before the tour, they also offer technique tips throughout the experience. After the tour, participants can take home their film as a souvenir of the experience.

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.

Customer Reviews

The website is a little tricky to navigate when making reservations. Make sure to read everything on the website first!! But the tour is soo amazing! They gave a lot of history on th floating homes and boats we saw(it was a little windy so it was rough to navigate that far out of marina) was still amazing nonetheless and absolutely worth it!!
