    We will go through a briefing about the area, teach you how to maneuver a kayak. After some practice, you will explore the easy route along the San Francisco waterfront. Our guides will be on the water to lead the way and give you helpful tips.

    You get an easy to use and extra stable kayak. Double and single kayaks are available.
