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.

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.
