The Floathouse offers the Bay Area’s best spot to learn to boat, right here in downtown Petaluma.
The Petaluma River, 13 miles from Basin to Bay, is protected enough for morning instruction in kayaks, stand up paddle boards, Hawaiian outrigger canoes, hydro bikes, pedal kayaks and canoes, but in the afternoon gets just enough wind for beginning sailors to gain some skills in small sailboats.
Let The Floathouse Petaluma introduce your kids to boating in the basin and beyond. Sign up today for Small Craft Summer Camp or Introduction to Sailing Camp! We have three sessions of each, timed so kids can do both camps if they want to spend a whole day on the water. Supervision is provided between AM and PM camps.
For kids aged 11-18.
