Highlights

Suitable for all levels, our guided kayaking excursions in Sausalito offer your team a wonderful and unique experience. Lock eyes with curious harbor seals as you paddle along Richardson Bay’s historic waterfront with the stunning backdrop of Angel Island and the San Francisco Bay.

Richardson Bay is a great destination for first time paddlers, being a relatively calm body of water sheltered by the hills of Sausalito. And Sea Trek’s Sausalito Bay Model location is conveniently located just 12-15 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The Mediterranean charm of Sausalito and the surrounding areas are best viewed from the water. Abundant marine and bird life, historic ships and breathtaking vistas are part of your kayaking experience for your group. And after your time on the water, you can enjoy dinner at one of Sausalito’s many incredible waterfront restaurants.

Sea Trek is California’s oldest kayaking outfitter, now in its 40th year of business. We paddle in stable double kayaks and guides are with you on the water at all times. All essential gear and water/wind resistant paddling jackets are included. Our team offsite trips offer a relaxed and fun paddling experience so you can focus on spending quality time with your group.

Richardson Bay Fascinating Facts

  • Coastal Miwok people lived in a village known as “Liwanelowa” along the southern portion of Sausalito’s waterfront.
  • The average depth of Richardson Bay is 5 ft. at mean low tide.
  • The bay was named for William Richardson, a British sailor who jumped ship to marry the daughter of the San Francisco Presidio’s commandant.
  • Sausalito’s houseboat community was originally established by artists, philosophers, and musicians such as Alan Watts, Jean Varda, Aldous Huxley, Allen Ginsberg, Duke Ellington and Shel Silverstein.
  • At one time developers toyed with the idea of filling in Richardson’s Bay to create a Coney Island style amusement park and an airport.

EXCURSION FAQ

Why sea kayaking?

Sea kayaking is a means to explore and enjoy the outdoors on an intimate level.  There’s a surprising amount of wildlife to be seen on the bay. Kayaking also provides great exercise, gentle or energetic at your own pace.

Is sea kayaking difficult?

Sea kayaking is highly accessible. Our friendly, supportive staff will teach you the simple, necessary skills you need in order to enjoy your time on the water.

Will I get wet?

There is often a certain amount of “splash and drip” associated with kayaking, but we provide water-repellent jackets to keep you as dry as possible. Our guides do their best to keep you comfortable.

What about capsizing the kayak?

Capsizes are extremely rare. All of our trips take place in stable, traditional, two-person sea kayaks (larger and steadier than river kayaks). The popular image of kayaks bobbing through rapids, and flipping upside- down is common to river kayaking but not kayaking here in the protected waters along the Sausalito shoreline.

Is it strenuous?

Only if you so choose. Sea kayaks glide easily, with little physical effort. Sea Trek trips are designed so that participants don’t over exert themselves; and travel is at a leisurely pace.

Will I be safe?

Yes, for precautionary purposes all our clients wear a lifejacket (or PFD (personal flotation device). For all trips your group will be accompanied by guides. Sea Trek has an unblemished safety record.

Will I need any special gear or equipment?

No, Sea Trek provides all the kayaking gear that you need to keep you comfortable, warm, and dry plus a list of clothing suggestions.

Can children participate?

Yes, children ages six and up can usually kayak together with an adult, depending on the skill and confidence of the adult. Please let Sea Trek know how many kids (and their ages) will be participating.

    Becoming a member of SeaTrek has changed our lives. It’s given us a safe and easy way to be out on the water and for our three and five year old boys to explore, learn about marine wild life and have a sense of adventure. The people who work at SeaTrek are all incredibly warm and knowledgeable and have made our whole family feel welcome. During the pandemic this has been a lifeline for us. I can’t recommend SeaTrek or being on Richardson Bay enough.

    If you’re staying in Sausalito or are looking for a great spot to get on the water during your stay in San Francisco this is a great spot! You’re able to complete the waiver on line ahead of time (or as a group we were able to) and the safety speech was quick but thorough! We saw seals and a variety of birds and enjoyed being able to explore on our own. You’re able to choose between kayaking and stand up paddle boards and the equipment is in good shape.

    My husband and I went out for a guided tour of the bay with Kenny this morning. It ended up just being the 3 of us which was really nice. I love that Sea Trek provided full body wind breakers which helped so much with keeping warm and dry. The highlight of the tour was definitely all the seals. They were so freaking cute and they were all over the pay popping their little heads out! Kenny shared lots of history with us regarding the boats in the bay, the animals, and the houseboat community. It was a really fun tour and it was not physically hard at all.

    Went here for me recent birthday! Try to go when it’s not windy! The first half was call. We went to the houseboats and to see the cute seals! Coming back, it got a little windy but it was definitely a great workout! We are in shape and used to rowing so it wasn’t a big deal, just ask or look up weather conditions before reserving a time.

    Repeat customer here. Book online ahead of time, and it’s a breeze to check in and get out in the water. We have used single and double kayaks (not the traditional kind) with adults and tweens / teens.

    Loved kayaking in Sausalito. Saw a bunch of cute seals and birds. Water can get choppy when it’s windy. Easy to board and get off the kayak. They had a small life jacket for our dog as well!

    Great experience! Staff were friendly, and we had a smooth, fun time kayaking. We especially liked kayaking around the house boats, which were cook to see. They recommend making reservations in advance, which was easy to do online.

    Fantastic company to rent from and great day kayaking! I have rented several times from Seatrek and every time has been so easy and hassle free. Today I took my dog for the first time and everyone was wonderful and helpful making it a perfect day on the water for us. If you are looking for a great single, couple, or group/family outing I highly recommend renting from seatrek.
