These include waterfront parks with picnic areas, restrooms, and parking.   Fishing is allowed from the public fishing pier. The Port has the only public boat launching facility with access to San Francsisco Bay south of Coyote Point. Boats on trailers can be launched in the Redwood City Channel 24 hours per day, seven days per week. The use fee is $5.00 per launch.


Waterfront Festivals and Public Events

The Port is the location for public events and festivals featuring visits by historic ships and sailing vessels. Each spring the Port is the location for the "Opening Day" of the boating season in the South Bay with a decorated boat parade and other activities.  Crew boat races, Hawaiian Outrigger canoe races, and sailing regattas are regularly held on the Port's waterfront.  

The annual PortFest event is held each year on the first Saturday of October. The day is filled with music, bands, boat races, vendors, Port tours, and children's activities. Visit the Port's website or Facebook page for updates on scheduled events.
