Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Pier 39 to meet your captain and first mate, and board the stately double-masted sailboat, which can hold up to 28 passengers.

After a safety briefing, your captain motors out of the marina. The crew raises the sails as your vessel reaches the open waters of San Francisco Bay. Keep your camera handy as you sail past Alcatraz Island and Angel Island. Take in a new perspective on the Bay Bridge, the rolling hills of Marin, and the waterside city of Sausalito. Get great photo ops as your captain steers parallel to the Golden Gate Bridge, then turn your gaze back to the San Francisco waterfront as your sailboat returns to Pier 39.

During the cruise, select two beverages to sip, choosing from beer, wine, soft drinks, or water. If you have any questions, feel free to ask the captain and crew, or simply relax and enjoy the sailing experience.

These guys are great. Smart, funny and entertaining captain. Small and intimate way to see the city from the bay and get close to the water. Way better than a big boat tour!
Loved it

I went solo to do some self-care. There was only one other couple who joined so we had the entire boat to ourselves. Caleb and Adrien were very chill. I'm from SF but still enjoyed the view from the front of the boat with my tall can of Blue Moon

Enjoyed it lots!

Lovely trip! Super fun! Maybe a little longer is my only suggestion. Two full hours would be best I think.
Great fun
