This trip is perfect for the adventurous novice. It’s one of those must-dos in a lifetime. The tides only give us only a few chances a season to enjoy the waters under the Golden Gate, so come out and enjoy!
We’ll launch our boats from the Coast Guard Station at Horseshoe Cove under the north tower of the Bridge. On this trip we paddle two-person fiberglass boats. Everyone gets a thorough orientation, so you can relax and enjoy the views. We’ll be paddling along the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Marin Headlands – starting off with a thrilling pass under the bridge!
No kayaking experience necessary. All equipment & gear is included. We’ll be paddling close to shore on a 4-mile course.
We leave from Horseshoe Cove, which is just inside the Golden Gate. Horseshoe Cove is home to the Coast Guard’s Station Golden Gate, as well as a small marina and the Presidio Yacht Club.
This outing is for the “adventurous beginner.” You can do it without kayaking experience and we provide full instruction & orientation before launch. While not overly demanding, it can be fiesty, so it’s for the more outgoing & fit people. Kids over 100lbs who are confident swimmers can share a kayak with a parent.
