Ballena Bay Cruise-out

Date: 
Friday, October 18, 2019 - 12:00 to Sunday, October 20, 2019 - 12:00

Sign up here.

Cruise-out to the lovely Ballena Isle Marina on the bay side of Alameda. It's a quick hop, skip, and a jump from Redwood City, and we have lots of fun planned. You can find all of the details here.

Ballena Bay is one of the nicest marinas on the bay. They recently replaced several of their docks, have a fuel and pump-out dock, very nice restrooms/showers, a great restaurant right at the marina, and plenty of free parking for blacktoppers. The area around the marina is perfect for walking, biking, kayaking, and there's even a sandy beach a mile away. There's a lot of history on Alameda Island, too. There's something for everyone!

Ballena Bay Yacht Club is located at the marina, but they have a cruise-out that weekend, so they have no activities planned. They will keep the club open for us all weekend, though, so we can stop by for a drink anytime.

There are 12 slips reserved for both Friday and Saturday nights, but they can provide more if needed. So sign up no later than October 2.
