Sea Trek Alameda!
Our goal is to be up and running by April 2024.
We plan on offering nearly identical programming in Alameda as we do in Sausalito. This will include:
- Rentals, including the Frequent Paddler Passes
- Tours (especially creating a “Scenic Alameda” and location-specific tours that showcase the location’s unique history and environment)
- Classes for Kayak, SUP and Surfski
- Memberships, both monthly and annual
- School & Youth Programs
- Corporate Team-Building and Offsite Programs
We’re investing in a large livery of both sit-on-top kayaks, traditional kayaks (including the fan-favorite P&H Virgos), stable, intro SUPs and high performance SUPs. We’ll also have a selection of surf skis of different lengths and dimensions.
The new location will be within Alameda’s Ballena Isle Marina. This Marina is on the western side of the island and offers a calm, protected, place to paddle even on windy afternoons.
For locals, our location is pretty easy to access by car, bus or bike. If you’re coming from Oakland or north in East Bay, you can easily bus, drive or bike taking either the tunnel or the bridge onto Alameda. For folks coming from San Francisco and North Bay, you can drive across the bridge(s) or take the ferry and then walk, bike or take local transportation to our site.
Can Sea Trek members and paddlers who have a “Book of Time” or “Frequent Paddler Padder Pass” use both locations?
Absolutely, and this was one of the key benefits that we’re excited to extend to our paddling community.
Yes! We actually will begin taking reservations this November (2023) for spring 2024 school and corporate offsite programs. You can contact us here if you’d like to begin making those arrangements or if you have any questions.

Steeped in natural and human history with stark vestiges of Alameda’s WWII importance, the island’s western waterfront is often one of the calmest and warmest parts of the Bay to explore by kayak and SUP. Abundant waterfowl, sea life, and nearly 6 miles of sandy beaches await paddlers and surrounding harbors offer a calm place to play, learn and explore all while taking in epic views of the downtown San Francisco skyline.
Yes! Those details will be provided in winter 2024.
We’re currently in conversation with several local partners who align with our Sea Trek CARES mission. In particular, we’d like to partner with organizations helping under-resourced communities and young folks have easy access to the water.
Oh yes, there are several incredible restaurants within the marina and surrounding areas.
