Water Outings

Sea Kayaking
Outdoor Programs offers two unique kayak locations: our Mission Creek Boathouse just minutes from Bakar Fitness & Recreation Center; or head north to Sausalito and find our boat container on the shore of beautiful Richardson Bay. You’ll find paddling areas ranging from the protected waters of Mission Creek to the more challenging conditions of the open Bay. All classes and tours include instruction, kayaks, and safety equipment. Transportation is not included. Please note: swimming ability is required for all sea kayaking activities.

Stand Up Paddling
Pioneered off Waikiki beach, stand up paddling (SUP) has evolved into a fast growing sport that can be as much fun on flat water as in the ocean surf. SUP is a great workout and a fantastic way to explore the Bay. Easy access, new equipment and excellent instructors will get you standing up and gliding in no time. Boards, paddle, wetsuit, and life jacket are included.
