Bay Parade 2017!!

Join hundreds of boaters, swimmers, and paddlers along the beautiful San Francisco shoreline on Sunday, July 9 for the 4th annual Bay Parade. Course starts at Golden Gate Bridge and finishes 6.5 miles later with a rousing finale in McCovey Cove. An on-land party hosted by Anchor Brewing follows the Parade.

Sailboats and motorboats are needed to support solo swimmers and swim teams. Rowboats are needed to escort swimmers along the course. Your participation provides critical support for the fun and safety of this event! 


The Bay Parade is the Bay Area’s premier on-the-water celebration of a healthy SF Bay. 100% of proceeds benefit San Francisco Baykeeper’s work keeping pollution out of the Bay. For more information and to sign up, visit baykeeper.org/bayparade.
