UpcomingBridge to Bridge (kayak/SUP)
- July 1, 2023
6:30 am - 11:30 am
This swim begins at the beach near the West Bluff Picnic Area. Swimmers jump in at the South Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge, swim toward Alcatraz, then turn in toward land and follow the shoreline all the way around San Francisco to Pier 24 near the base of the Bridge Bridge. Paddlers will escort swimmers, help them to correct their sighting, and provide emergency support as needed. You must have your own kayak or SUP to participate, but experience is not necessary. We will help you get started and teach you more on the water in each event that you support. This is a very long swim, so paddlers will receive boat rides from the finish back to the West Bluff Picnic Area.
To sign up, get a free kayaker ticket and then check your email for a registration confirmation. You must provide a valid mailing address where you can receive payment, and also to confirm at sign-in that we are paying the correct person. You may also request to be paid electronically.
Paddlers will launch from West Bluff Picnic Area and finish at Bay Bridge near Pier 24
