Winter Tours

Discover the Bay: Red Rock Island Tour (Level 1) - 3 Hours - Ages 12+ - $120

Our Red Rock Island Tour starts at Point Molate Beach Park in Richmond. We’ll paddle beneath the San Rafael/Richmond Bridge on the way to Red Rock Island, an uninhabited, 5.8 acre privately owned island and the point where the borders of Marin, San Francisco and Contra Costa Counties converge! We’ll watch for cormorants and dolphins, then continue south to make our way back to Alameda/Ballena Bay and Mike’s Paddle.

Participants must have taken a Mike’s Paddle Intro to SUP (Level 1) class/private lesson or equivalent elsewhere.


Discover the Bay: Treasure Island Tour (Level 3) - 3 Hours - $120

We only hold our most advanced Treasure Island Tour in the winter months in order to take advantage of the Bay’s best conditions. We meet at the Treasure Island Sailing Club and get our bearings in sheltered Clipper Cove, then depending on conditions, paddle clockwise or counterclockwise around the island. We’ll see the Bay Bridge (front both sides!) and Yerba Buena Island, and have fantastic views of the San Francisco waterfront and skyline.

Participants must have taken a Mike’s Paddle Intro to Touring (Level 3) class/private lesson or equivalent elsewhere.
