Join us for a relaxing guided paddle along Mission Creek to McCovey Cove and take in beautiful views of the SF Giant’s baseball stadium, the Bay Bridge, and beyond. This is a wonderful way to enjoy our world-class backyard.
Stand Up Paddling (SUP) Trips
SUP is fun, easy, and right in our backyard at Mission Creek. Our staff teaches you the basics and guides you on the creek’s calm water which makes for a stable ride on the paddle board. It’s an ideal place for beginners. Boards, paddles, and life jackets are all included. No experience needed.
Looking for the perfect way to take a break and get some fresh air? Kayak or Stand Up Paddle at your own pace with our new Mid-Week Rentals. These rentals are available Wednesday-Friday from 2:00-5:00 pm and can be reserved in 1-3 hour time blocks. Come on your own or bring a UCSF coworker!
