Moondrops on the bay surround you and the city shimmers on the horizon. What could be finer than a 360-degree paddler’s-eye panorama of San Francisco by night? This Saturday, UCSF Outdoor Programs’ Sausalito Moonlight Paddle gives participants sea to sky scenery — with sunset and moonrise views of the city; you’ll also take in Mt. Tam, the Sausalito houseboats, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel and Treasure Islands. Paddles are open to all (though USCF members get a discount off the $65 price). Double-seat kayaks are used, so bring a friend — or make a new one there. You supply the muscle; nature will do the rest. Just reserve a space before 5:00 p.m Friday.
Alternative: If this popular paddle’s sold out, try City Kayak in San Francisco. Their full-moon trip paddles around Cupid’s Arrow, AT&T Park, and, depending on the weather, Treasure Island.
