San Francisco Bay Water Trail

This one appears in the Spring 2009 issue of Wavelength Magazine:

Yellow Bluff, a spot below the north stanchion of the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, is one of Casey Walker’s favorite kayak launching sites.

“The bay floor drops suddenly and dramatically, causing the water to roil,” says the San Francisco business lawyer. “It only happens on the strongest outgoing tide because there is an eddy right to the side of that play spot. You get into the eddy and circulate out to less rough water where you can be easily rescued. It’s not a place for beginners.”
