Boats from Coast Guard Sector San Francisco and the Alameda Fire Department responded to the scene, and the trio was picked up at 5:06 a.m., Lutz said. All three were in good condition, he said.

They were taken to the Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline in Oakland and dropped off on shore, he said.
