Swim, stand up paddleboard, kayak, or boat in beautiful San Francisco Bay on Sunday, July 15 for the 5th annual Baykeeper BAY PARADE. All ages and levels welcomed. You’ll make it to the big screen when the Parade’s 1pm finale is broadcast to the AT&T Park Jumbotron at the start of the SF Giants home game. An on-land party follows the Bay Parade.

*SWIM: 6.5 miles from the Golden Gate bridge to McCovey Cove – timed solo, timed relay, open relay divisions
*KAYAK or SUP: 2.5 miles from Pier 40 to Bay Bridge to McCovey Cove

*BOATS are needed to support swimmers along the swim course

The fastest swimmers and biggest fundraisers compete for the esteemed Golden Rivet Award.

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 stop pollution in the Bay.
Registration closes Sunday, July 8.
