Kayaking and bocce may seem an unlikely combo, but the two pair perfectly in Sausalito. Bar Bocce
is set right on Richardson Bay, fancied up by a fantastic patio with a warming firepit and, of course, a bocce court. Most people drive to this waterside restaurant, but arriving by kayak makes for a much splashier entrance. SeaTrek
is located just a couple blocks away and will set you up in a single- or double-kayak and point you in the right direction. We recommend steering south from the put-in, toward downtown Sausalito, where views of the San Francisco skyline seem so surreal it's as if you're inside a postcard. After enjoying the scenery, flip it and paddle back for a few minutes, nosing up to the marshland shore that leads to Bar Bocce. Belly up to the firepit and order a classic margherita wood-fired pizza and a local draught beer, like a Racer 5. Just don't go overboard! The return paddle is no fun if your flotation device is a beer belly.SeaTrek (415-332-8494) is located in Sausalto on Libertyship Way. For directions, visit their Web site.
