Welcome to the Western Sea Kayakers web site! Western Sea Kayakers (WSK) is a Bay Area sea kayaking club with about 200 members interested in safe, enjoyable paddling. WSKers love kayaking in Monterey Bay, San Francisco Bay, Elkhorn Slough – actually, just about any waters between Alaska and Baja. Many of our members also enjoy kayak camping, whitewater kayaking, as well as kayak surfing, and can even be found participating in an occasional kayak race or two.

During this year of social distancing, we are actively paddling. We are keeping group sizes small and encourage our members to participate in paddles within their abilities to minimize the need for assisted rescues.

Additional details on our monthly meetings and some of our novice / beginner paddles can be found on our Meetup site, Silicon Valley's Western Sea Kayakers

Want to find out more? WSKers get together on the first Wednesday of most months at 6:30 pm at the Sports Basement near Lawrence Expressway and 101 in Sunnyvale, CA. (See the "News" below for exceptions.) Currently we are having Online meetings instead of going to Sports Basement. Meetings are open to members and non-members alike. We share ideas and experiences, talk about trips, learn about kayak related issues in our communities, discuss safety topics and listen to wonderful guest speakers.

From shrimp to sponges, it takes a whole slew of critters to maintain a healthy habitat. In this virtual presentation, we will delve down to the mudflats to discover the benthic macroinvertebrates that make up the backbone of our estuarine food chain. This month's speaker is Rose Bondurant, Education and PR Assistant at the Elkhorn Slough Reserve.For more information, see our Meetup site.
