If it’s saltwater treatment you desire, the Embarcadero has you covered like a crashing wave. Water options include paddle boarding, sportfishing, recreation rentals, and boat cruises. If staying dry sounds better, stay on the dock and step into an interesting tour of vintage ships, walk the decks of the longest-serving U.S. aircraft carrier, or just tour the town for the day. Make it a spiritual escape by ducking into the spa for an afternoon of pampering.
