Kayak Put-In Info for: Point Emery, Emeryville

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins OverviewOverview: Nicely developed access point for the South Berkeley Sailing Basin. Has two potential launches -- the wide, sandy main cove in front of the parking lot, or down a rather narrow but short set of stairs on the other side. This launch site basically accesses the same area as the Emeryville Marina. On calm days, ambitious paddlers can also work out to the remnants of the old Key Line (commuter railroad) pier system reaching out from the end of the Berkeley Pier. Note: this is a key launch site for East Bay kitesailors and windsurfers on windy summer afternoons, so the launch beach can get very busy.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins ParkingParking: Free unlimited parking, except overnight. Parking is about a dozen diagonal spaces, no pullthroughs. Launch is about 50 feet from parking. However, all spaces usually taken on windy summer afternoons by kitesailors and windsurfers.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins FacilitiesFacilities: No facilities (bathrooms, water, etc.).
