They could get you a boat and they do tours.
Your post said nothing about the type of paddling you wanted to do, or your skills or experience. The SF Bay in general is not a good place for an inexperienced solo paddler on a visit. The exposed side of Angel Island can be very challenging depending on the tides, currents, and wind (don’t ask me how I know).
Getting on a tour, or connecting with one of the guides could be a lot of fun, and the people there are great. You can paddle protected waters, or go out the Golden Gate, depending on what you want to do.
