SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins CautionsCautions: DO NOT try to launch your kayak here unless it's High Tide or close to it. This area is a very shallow cove which is really a marsh area at low tide. There is very thick and deep mud during low tide that will make it close to impossible to launch. At high tide it's a sandy beach. You may want to also consider bringing a Kayak cart as the path from the parking lot to the beach is about 2 blocks long.
