Red Rock Island Kayak Tour San Francisco Bay

Kayak to this small secluded island on the East Bay

Join Outback Adventures for a bay paddle to historic Red Rock Island. Surrounded by some of the deepest water in the North Bay at about 60 feet, this Island has the distinction of being the only privately owned island in the San Francisco Bay. Acutally located in three different counties, this 5 ½ acre landmark of the San Francisco Bay has quite a history. Did pirates bury treasure here? How are three different U.S presidents connected to its history? Find out as we paddle out and around the island from Point Richmond.
