I had such a great experience renting a kayak here with friends! The workers are laid back yet friendly and helpful, the kayaks, paddles, and life vests do the trick, and the environment is, of course, absoutely beautful, inclusing the wildlife. Go forth & kayak!

We had a great time on this 3 hour tour. They made sure we were well equipped - waterproof jackets/pants, kayak skirts, life jackets, etc... Everything for a comfortable ride. We've kayaked before but never on the ocean so this was a very cool experience....More

I had few hours to kill before flight from SFO. Half Moon Bay is always great. You can rent a kayak, a sup or a bicycle and spend few hours.

Great fun. Our guide Sam was very knowledgable about local biology and animal life. Saw tons of seals, birds. This was a great way to see local Bay Area.
