The waters around the Golden Gate Bridge can be some of the best in the world to paddle, and, with that excitement comes danger.  With safety in mind (you have all heard this before!)  here are some tips to ensure happy paddling for years to come (minimum):

  1. Always have a floatation device on your canoe or surfski.
  2. Always wear a leash.
  3. Keep a waterproof VHF radio or cellphone on your body.

The local coast guard station is USCG Station Golden Gate location just north of the Golden Gate at Fort Baker.  Keep their direct phone number handy for emergencies only:
