Kayak Put-In Info for: Islais Creek, San Francisco

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins OverviewOverview: A useful launch site on the south east side of San Francisco. From here you can paddle south to Candlestick, or north to Pac Bell Park. An ideal site from which to explore the industrial waterfront - lots of cranes, ships, piers and dry docks. A good place to start a paddle if the winds are westerlies (and too strong to paddle from Crissy Field, for example). Sticking to the shore, you will be in the lee North to the Bay Bridge, and South for a few miles.

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins ParkingParking: Plenty of spaces, and it's free, though parking can be tight weekdays due to overflow from nearby industrial park. Make sure you lock your vehicle. Portage: About 50 feet. The city built a nice floating dock from which to launch boats. Unfortunately for us, they put a sharp 180 degree turn in the ramp which is awkward when you're carrying a kayak. Next to the dock is a muddy area as an alternative launch site.
