California Canoe & Kayak (CC&K) is coming to the Port of Redwood City to operate a retail store for the sale of kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and related water recreation equipment and to offer kayak rentals and lessons. The company anticipates putting close to 4,000 people a year on the water.

 

The Redwood City Port Commission approved a lease for CC&K at the portside office complex near the marina. The company will be taking over a portion of space previously occupied by Arrivederci Italian Seafood Restaurant from 1998 to 2011.

 

There will be some outside storage racks for boats and equipment on the side of the building facing the waterfront. CC&K and its customers will have access to this area from inside the building. The adjacent port guest dock will be used for hand-launching boats.

 

CC&K has operated a similar business in a waterfront building in Jack London Square in Oakland since 1993, and since 1995 has had a location in Pillar Point Harbor at the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club. The company also had a retail store in San Carlos that recently closed. CC&K hosts events of all sizes, from private instruction and corporate events to regularly scheduled classes and tours.

       

CC&K is planning to open its new store in early September on 487 Seaport Court. “The port is pleased that CC&K is joining other port tenants that provide a wide range of waterfront recreational opportunities for the public,” said Redwood City Port Commission Chairperson Simms Duncan.
