To work side by side with the private and public sector to provide paddlers with a network of water trails in Mission Bay, San Diego Bay and coastal areas with the potential to be interconnected.  Identifying, creating and maintaining access points, highlighting accommodation options, food options, plus entertainment options will allow for local and visiting outdoor enthusiasts to recreate on the San Diego waterways.    We will achieve success when paddlers can see their defined path from hotel accommodations/campsites to launch and landings sites, to local meals and through local agencies’ support to a fun, safe and successful time on the water.

Who we are?

We are a group of passionate individuals that enjoy paddling in San Diego County. Our non-profit organization is a 501(c)3 recognized organization.   We are committed to being the stewards of the San Diego waterways, whether we live in the north county or in downtown San Diego.

Our mission is to advocate, promote, protect and educate about public access to San Diego’s waterways including the shoreline, launching and landing areas and the marine trails used for outdoor recreation on human-powered watercrafts. We aim to be a representative voice of the non-motorized boating community in policy-making decisions. Our website and publications will be a dynamic resource developed by and for the community.

What are Water Trails?

Water trails “are mapped routes on navigable waterways such as rivers, lakes, canals and coastlines for people using small non-motorized boats such as kayaks, canoes, rafts, or rowboats”.
