WATER rECREATION

The Port has the only public boat launching facility with access to San Francisco 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.

The Port hosted a water safety meeting with our water recreation community, the Redwood City Police and Fire Departments and the United States Coast Guard. One outcome of the meeting was new waterfront user safety guidelines. For online safety resources, check out the links on the right.
