Your peaceful voyage continues as you get closer to Marin and Sausalito. The green landscape of Marin County and picturesque view of the city of Sausalito look stunning under the illumination from the setting sun.
Next up, see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge with a lovely red-orange sunset in the background—a prime time for photo ops. As you head back towards Pier 39, which is where your boat ride will end, take a look at how the San Francisco waterfront begins to light up and sparkle. It’s the perfect ending to your night.

Captain Mikel and First Mate, Caleb were awesome!!! We knew we were in good hands. The views and the ambiance are breath-taking. We saw sea-lions fishing in the sea! My daughter and I will always remember this wonderful part of our San Francisco experience.

We hit the perfect evening for this event, a clear day with a beautiful sunset and then a full moon rising as we headed in. Even without that good fortune, this is an excellent tour. The captain was right on time. His mate was lively and easy to talk to. He made certain everyone had wine. Very relaxed and pleasant outing. The boat was comfortable. The efficiency of the operation was amazing. If you visiting San Francisco, definitely do this.

This was simply a lovely your! First mate Caleb was helpful and entertaining and the Cap'n was great.
The real star was the Bay and the beauty of sailing - quietly cutting through the water with San Francisco skyline as a backdrop. We had multiple pelican escorts and good wine. Do it!

AMAZING! It was the best part of our trip! My friend was hesitant since it's just sitting for two hours on a boat but he had a blast! The only warning I would give is that most of you are sitting by the sides of the boat and it does tilt quite a bit towards the water. I was rather freaked out at first by that but did get more accustomed to it. If you would be nervous doing that, I would suggest one of the spots on the deck or on the bench behind the captain.
I've told all my family and friends that they must do this tour. I've taken many boat tours on rivers, lakes, and bays but nothing equaled this!

Our sail was a bit different than what we were expecting, but fabulous none the less! The skipper and his mate, were friendly, knowledgeable about sailing and all things San Francisco. They were attentive and were there for our every need. It was a peaceful and pleasant experience, in spite of the winds that seem to always be in the bay. We will definitely do this again and recommend it to everyone.

My Neice had never been on a boat with sails. This was a nice end to a day. We went under the Golfen Gate Bridge and back through the bay and aroun Alcatraz island. We went near the Bay bridge and saw great views on the city from the water.

This is the first time we've done something like this and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time. The crew was up front about everything and even provided a couple cups of wine. Wonderful time sailing in the bay on a very spacious boat we weren't the slightest bit crowded and there was even some music playing. We had a great time but the only recommendation I have, is to ensure to dress warm. Awesome cruise!
