SAN FRANCISCO AQUATIC PARK: WATCH THE VIDEO
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.
