Downtown Kayak Tour

by City Kayak Duration 3h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $86
Amazing! 5/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Venture out into the San Francisco Bay in a kayak for a guided tour on the water. Admire the city skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge and impressive Bay Bridge, and several waterfront landmarks as you paddle across the waves.

After a safety briefing and lesson on paddling, maneuvering, and turning, set out over the waves of the San Francisco Bay in a sea kayak. Admire the impressive span of the Bay Bridge—one of the country’s longest suspension bridges—and check out Cupid’s Span, a 60-foot (18 m) tall bow and arrow sculpture on the Embarcadero.

Paddle through McCovey Cove for a look at AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, and cruise under the Lefty O’Doul Bridge—this drawbridge was the scene of a car chase in the 1985 James Bond film A View to Kill. Check out the floating homes of Mission Creek—this tiny community of houses and boats rocks with the tide right in the heart of downtown.

As you drift over the water, keep your eyes peeled for harbor seals, seabirds, and the Bay’s abundant native wildlife before your kayak cruise comes to a close.
