What you'll do

This is an intimate experience for up to six guests. We'll meet you at the Marina. At the marina, we'll acquaint you with our beloved yacht "Whimsea" and all of it's luxurious amenities, give you a safety tour and briefing, stow your gear, and share the itinerary for the day. Then we'll put on all our sailing gear and disembark the dock for adventures on the Bay. We'll head to the central bay past Tiburon, Sausalito, Angel Island and Alcatraz, and head for the Golden Gate Bridge.

The boat is very comfortable, stable, and we guarantee you wont get wet or cold. The experience is like sitting in a luxurious living room with great views passing you by. During the voyage you can feel free to ask us about the maritime history of the bay, the environmental conditions of the Bay or any other fun Bay facts. Your host Lauren has over 30 years working for the local Ports and teaching sailing and marine science on the Bay.

We'll spend 3 hours sailing the Bay, past the Tiburon peninsula, and the Sausalito waterfront, Richardson Bay, around Angel Island, and out to the central Bay towards the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Along the way we'll see lots of sea birds, and seals, sea lions, porpoises and maybe even some whales.

Lauren & Jerry are not only super fun and awesome but they have decades of combined sailing experience. We went into the trip hoping to get a taste for sailing and walked away with tons of useful knowledge. We also got to see spectacular views of the city, Angel Island and lots of wildlife. It was the perfect intro into sailing and an overall enjoyable afternoon!

One word to describe this! Unforgettable! This experience was one of a kind. We had never been sailing before so Lauren and Jerry were more than happy to answer all our questions. The amount of knowledge that these two hosts have is astounding. I was blown away by every story. They were attentive, kind, funny, generous, the list goes on. I have booked a few excursions on this app by now and these have been the only hosts thus far who have really gone above and beyond. At one point, I got a little sea sick and there was Lauren with some ginger candies, a bottle of water, and some helpful tips. Wow! The boat was beautiful. Smooth, clean, safe, and well equipped. I could sit here and go on but you get the gist. Book now and thank me later!

Our day of sailing with Captain Lauren and Captain Morgan was relaxed, close to nature, and with beautiful views of the bay. Lauren was very responsive, and helped plan a special Christmas-time surprise for my fiancé, including a pretty array of snacks and drinks. She really went the extra mile with planning and hospitality, making us feel very welcomed on their boat. As an interesting side note - Lauren is an expert sailor and currently is an instructor of several high-level students! We had a nice time and felt very lucky to sail on a sunny day, with a few other guests joining us. We were able to see several dolphins (porpoises - perhaps ~15 different sightings of groups), various birds species, and a few seals! We highly recommend this experience, especially for those searching for a special day that is not near crowded touristy areas. We hope to come back on our next visit!
