Coyote Point Yacht Club is easily accessible either by land or by water. If you are coming by land, note that there is a guard house at the entrance to the park, and there is an entrance fee to enter the park. If you are attending an event at the yacht club, inform the gate guard. There is plenty of parking behind the clubhouse facilities.

Just south of the San Francisco Airport runways, Coyote Point can be recognized by a low, dark green mound on the horizon, backgrounded by the lighter greens and browns of the hills behind it. Aim for the mound. The marina is just to the left of the mound as you face it.
Once within sight of the harbor, pick up day markers 1 and 2. Don’t cut it short as the depths shallow fast near the harbor. Keep aligned with the channel and no sweat. We were recently dredged to 15′ at MLLW. Most of the time the Club’s radio is tuned to VHF 16 and fellow Club members are happy to help with docking if asked. Just in case: 650-347-6730 to ask to speak with the Officer of the Day.
Coyote Point Harbormaster also stands a vigilant watch on VHF 16 during normal business hours. Call for aid to navigation, fueling, or other visitor questions.
