SF San Pablo Bay Boat Trip (SOLD OUT)
Saturday, November 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This trip is now FULL but you may register to be on the waiting list in case of cancellations.
San Francisco Bay, the largest and one of the most important estuaries along the Pacific Flyway, is right in our own backyard. Join us as we cruise from Berkeley toward the Golden Gate Bridge and north into San Pablo Bay, hugging the shorelines and waters that are home to thousands of wintering birds.
Leaving from Berkeley, we will proceed along the old Berkeley ferry pier to see what’s shaking, turn north and head over to Southhampton Shoal, and then on to the Richmond Inner Harbor and Brooks Island and its breakwater. Leaving this area we’ll travel to Red Rock before passing under the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge and our views of East and West Brothers Islands. This trip offers water bird and marine mammal viewing in stunning locations, many of which can only be seen by boat. In addition to the many ducks, loons, pelicans and gulls that come into the Bay for the winter, we can also expect to see resident cormorants, grebes, terns and murres.
Dress in layers. Bring liquids and lunch. Trip is limited to 25 people.
Vaccinations are highly recommended, please bring a mask for any time spent inside the cabin.
$120 GGAS members, $155 Non-members.
