Best Night Kayaking - 2006
If you're a baseball fan, City Kayak provides one of the most unusual views of the game. Join one of the company's Full Moon kayaking trips and you'll end up bobbing about outside PacBell Park just as the post-game fireworks go off. You'll literally feel the vibrations from the explosions in the base of your boat. And the colors look very pretty reflected in the inky water. The fireworks display isn't the only marvel you experience on this two-hour nighttime adventure: Paddling out from Pier 38 in a one- or two-person kayak at sunset, the guided tour takes you under the Bay Bridge (avoiding, with a bit of luck, oncoming tankers and passenger ferries) and past the Ferry Building and other landmarks. City Kayak provides all the equipment and expertise, not to mention tasty pizza when you arrive at the other end, exhausted, damp, and exhilarated.
