The Port of Redwood City (Port) serves the Silicon Valley region and is a leading west-coast international bulk port. Its strategic location feeds the construction industry through the importing of raw construction materials and cargo used in the region.  Additionally, the Port offers more than one mile of waterfront public access, parks with picnic areas, restrooms, public art, viewing areas, and parking.  Other public amenities include watercraft sailboats, kayaks and various personal watercraft available for rent and conference facilities. The Port also offers a public fishing pier and the only public boat launching facility with access to San Francisco Bay south of Coyote Point. The boat launch at the Port of Redwood City is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

The Port of Redwood City is committed to supporting our local community through a variety of ways. The Port’s goals align with the City of Redwood City's Strategic Initiatives including Economic Development, Transportation, Community Building and Government Operations.


Seeking local sponsorships with an overarching focus on maritime activities to enhance the community, the Port’s four focus areas include:  1)  Economic Growth, 2)  Environmental Stewardship, 3)  Youth and Education,  and 4)  Community Benefit. The Port’s FY 2019-20 Call for Sponsorships Pilot Program, implements a transparent framework for the Port’s sponsorship process. Selected applicants may use funding for event sponsorship, program/operational support or other related use.
