Kayak Put-In Info for: Turney Street Public Boat Ramp, Sausalito

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins OverviewOverview: Good novice site, easy protected launch. There's lots to explore in Richardson Bay: stay in lee of hills and visit the houseboats to the north and the marinas to the south. Seals aplenty. Venture over to Tiburon if conditions match your skills and see where the landed class lives. Some boat traffic, mostly pleasure boats and rowers. There's a beach at Sea Trek. Pay attention to features when you launch, easy to forget where you came out.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins ParkingParking: Can be tight. Fee lots you can walk to, or meters on street - $.25 per 15 minutes. Most park in front of vacant building to the south the the Paradise Bay restaurant without problem. Also parking straight up the hill on turney street in front of the Playground never seems to have the 2 hour limit enforced even on weekends.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins FacilitiesFacilities: None. Very bare bones dock.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins AmenitiesAmenities: Just down the street is Margueritaville and many other fine eating and drinking establishments. Sea Trek and West Marine are nearby, and the Bay Model is always worth a look.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins DirectionsDirections: Turney Street is off Bridgeway, the main street in Sausalito.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins CautionsCautions: Richardson Bay is somewhat protected but Summer winds come up in the afternoon from west/northwest, strong at times. Some parts of bay are shallow, check tides or risk getting stranded if too far north. Watch for boat traffic: yachts and motor boats entering the Sausalito marinas, and ferries to San Francisco and Angel Island.
