San Francisco Aquatic Park

Join us on Twitter


In a little corner of San Francisco, down by the water's edge, hearty souls brave the chilly waters of the Bay. They swim and they row in the shadow of Fisherman's Wharf, mostly hidden from the tourists who frequent the area, keeping alive local traditions of old San Francisco. Over the years, not a whole lot has changed in this little harbor. From the historic ships at the San Francisco Maritime National Park that dock at Hyde Street Pier, to Fort Mason perched above, this section of the City, known as Aquatic Park, has some very deep roots. And at its center are two unusual clubs that have been around for over 120 years ~ The Dolphin Club and the South End Rowing Club.

"Napa Bob" and his fellow swimmers still take the plunge into the cold bay waters because, as he says, "It has to be done!"

Take a dip in San Francisco's chilly Aquatic Park and visit the historic athletic clubs that grace the Bay.
