See the Golden Gate Bridge—From Below!

We start from Horseshoe Cove. Because this trip can deal with some strong currents flowing through the bay, we give you a thorough orientation to build your confidence and ensure you can take care of yourself in a kayak. If you have passed our Angel Island Class, you can choose to paddle in a single kayak. Everyone else must use a 2-person kayak. We paddle down the coast, taking care to stay close to shore, and away from shipping lanes. We travel beneath the Golden Gate Bridge and along the Marin Headlands before returning to Horseshoe Cove.

This trip takes about 3 hours, and does not require any experience kayaking. We leave in the morning, though the exact time will depend on the tides that day. Check available dates through our website, or call (415) 332-8494 for a reservation.
