The Dolphin Club has a unique fleet of traditional rowing boats. They are all hand-built and lovingly maintained at our club-house. Some are over 100 years old. Rowing them is a special privilege that is hard to find anywhere else in the world.
Our training program will teach you the basics of how to row, how to take care of our boats, and how to understand the tides, currents, and nature of San Francisco Bay.
The Dolphin Club rowing training class is typically offered monthly with the potential for one-on-one training at other times. Training is only available to members.
Following orientation, you will be a Trainee Rower and able to row within the cove. Few people pick it up right away, but after a handful of practice rows you’ll soon have the hang of things and be ready for more.

Once certified, members are free to take our Dolphin Club singles and doubles onto the bay on their own schedule and within the limits of our safety rules.
You don’t have to know anything about rowing to start learning at the Dolphin Club, but you should be aware that it can at times be a strenuous and challenging activity. You should be able to swim and be willing to enjoy getting pushed around by wind, waves, and current.
Once certified, you may row on San Francisco Bay by yourself, or with others. Rowers frequently get together for outings to nearby destinations including:
You’ll also be able to take a guest out as a passenger in the boat.
