The San Francisco Bay is a watery wonderland and at the western-most point of town lives the Berkeley Marina, our gateway to fun on the water. Learn to sail, launch or berth your boat, take a class in windsurfing, walk or cycle the paths along the waterfront. Escape the urban sprawl and hang out on a bench to watch wind surfers and take in the view before dining in one of three bay side restaurants, including Skates on the Bay.
