What you'll do

Book this experience for one person and bring up to five additional friends and family to make this a totally private small group sail! We sail from sausalito out into the bay and back, taking in the bay nature and incredible views of the city and Golden Gate Bridge. We will have some great photo opportunities, too, with the Golden Gate in the background unobstructed and from a vantage point you can only achieve on the water. This is a family friendly outing for all ages. The captain is a mom of 3 and all we're born and raised aboard, so she has plenty of experience keeping everyone safe and comfortable while sailing. We will take into consideration the conditions of the day, tide, wind and sea state before deciding on an exact route, and will make sure you have a great introduction to using wind and water to voyage. Life jackets and nature guides are provided. This outing is designed for people with no experience so come see what sailing and life on the water is all about! If you happen to be a sailor you will love our yacht, a retired one of a kind racing machine that handles beautifully in all conditions and has classic clean lines with modern rigging and good speed through the water. Children ages 12 and under and their caregivers are required to wear a life jacket on board (Provided).
Other things to note
Life jackets must be worn at all times by children 12 and under and their caregiver and are provided. You may bring up to five guests when you book for one person (this keeps the trip private for one family/group).

I'm a coast guard licensed captain (Master, 100 ton near coastal) and mom of 3 operating my own small sailing charter company “Fine Day for Sailing” in Sausalito. After 20 years of experience on the waters of San Francisco Bay, an impeccable safety record at sea and training in wilderness first aid, I place a high priority of safety on my boat while making sure everyone is comfortable and having fun! We live aboard our yacht with a unique perspective on sustainability and we work towards having a tiny footprint on this fragile ecosystem. I also have 5000 miles of experience cruising the Pacific with my kids from infants to teenagers and love to share this unique experience with people of all ages- lots of sea stories to share but for you and your family there is no sailing experience required to enjoy a new adventure with me!

Where you'll be

San Francisco Bay, near the Golden Gate Bridge, among dolphins, whales if were lucky, seals, sea lions and sea birds of many kinds! We can often see Alcatraz and Angel Island up close but are not permitted to land on the islands. Departing from Sausalito gives us the best chance of viewing the Golden Gate Bridge if there is fog, as the San Francisco cityfront is often enveloped while the northern end of the Bridge is still visible from Sausalito

Heather was extremely knowledgeable! Brought some snacks aboard for us to enjoy. She was very personable and kind. Will absolutely recommend this experience to my friends. We lucked out and it ended up only my boyfriend and I on the boat! Beautiful views, comfortable, so enjoyable.
