We provide all the paddling gear. This trip uses performance seatouring kayaks. Such kayaks are superior to sit-on-top (rental) kayaks in several ways; comfortable seats, fast and dry. This trip is the best way to experience kayaking in San Francisco bay, especially when you have limited time.
Beginners and youth should paddle on a double kayak for more speed. Advanced or strong paddlers may qualify for single kayaks.
