About your host

I helped run kayak tours in Hawaii for a couple years, and San Carlos the past 12 years. My family has been visiting El Estero Soldado for 39 years and playing in San Francisco Bay on kayaks for the last twenty years.

What we’ll do

We will depart San Francisco Beach at your convenience in good weather and tides, hopefully catching up with the local dolphin pod before entering El Estero Soldado. From there we will take an easy loop around the estuary, with a quick stop in the back bay. Along the way we will see dozens of varieties of birds along the mangroves, highlighted by the 'San Carlos Flamingo'.

What else you should know

You might prefer to wear a suit, as you often will get a wet seat. A hat can be nice too.

What I’ll provide

Water
Clear water

What to bring

Sunscreen

Where you'll be

The park is protected and only accessible by water, except for the visitor's center. It will not get you close up to the birds though, and kayaking with the dolphin is the highlight for most.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
