Power Squadron FAQs

When can I run electric or steam boats?

  • Electric and Steam Power Models may run at anytime Golden Gate Park is open. 
  • On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings, you may run with the gas and nitro-fueled power boats, but you should keep clear of them, as they run at a high speed and may not be able to easily maneuver to avoid your boat.
  • Sailboats always have the right of way.
  • Spreckels Lake is on the Pacific Flyway and is frequented by many species of birds. Do not chase or harass the birds or turtles in the lake.
