Fundraising Paddles

Join ETC for a trip that makes a difference and supports our work with underserved populations!  We offer Full Moon Dinner Paddles and can also design a day or overnight trip on San Francisco Bay or Tomales Bay to fit your group. These benefit trips are a great opportunity for a fun trip with friends, co-workers, or family that also support the ETC Scholarship Fund.  These unique events are also perfect for an adventurous corporate team building experience.  We offer these custom experiences for groups of 10 or more.  Click here for information on benefit trips are available in ETC's Whitewater Rafting Program.

Trip Overview: Bring your company or social group out for a beautiful day on either San Francisco or Tomales Bays.  ETC volunteer guides will meet your group in either Sausalito or at Heart's Desire Beach on Tomales Bay, where they will lead you in some opening activities before heading out to explore the day in double and triple kayaks.  Our paddling destinations will depend on the group's interests and conditions, but there are many great options.  In most cases we'll land on a beach and our guides will prepare a delicious lunch for your group to enjoy.  Depending on the goals of your group, we can facilitate team building activities (many find that sea kayaking is a team building activity in and of itself!), environmental education, group games, and more.  We'll return to the beach where we started after a memorable and rewarding day together on the water.

Dates: You choose the date and bring your group of at least 10 people!

Start and End Times: Tailored to your schedule.  Typical times are from 9:30 AM to 4 PM.

Trip Overview: Bring your group out to Angel Island for an incredible and unique retreat unlike any other.  Meet your ETC guides in Sausalito, gear up and get oriented to kayaking, and make the crossing to Angel Island in our stable double and triple kayaks.  All of your overnight gear will fit into the kayaks with you.  Once on the island, you'll have time to explore, run workshops, or complete team building activities before settling into one of the beautiful restored buildings pictured above.  A sunset over the Bay with spectacular views of the Golden Gate and San Francisco skyline will be yours to enjoy over a delicious dinner.  Depending on your desired activities, you can spend 1-4 nights on Angel Island with us before the return kayak trip to Sausalito.
