What you'll do

Get a taste for what an awesome experience living, working and voyaging on a classic sailboat can be, while viewing fantastic landmarks from the uncrowded deck of " Alsager ", using sustainable and eco friendly wind power. Perhaps choose an evening sail, and enjoy a wonderful sunset. We will be outside only, with plenty of space, breathing clean Pacific air!

Get a little salty while we sail and chat about what it's like going far from land and crossing oceans, from endless waves and wind, to calm nights under starry skies. Get a feel for what it's like to live and thrive in a constantly moving small space, in a beautiful but unforgiving environment.

Hear what it's like to battle Tuna and Sailfish while under sail, and have the freshest sushi minutes later. And to anchor in tropical anchorages, bathe in the sea, and surf uncrowded waves right from the boat.

Ask as little or as much as you like about surviving storms, living in foreign countries, meeting great cruising friends, and unplugging from normal living to find another path. Perhaps, ask how you can get started yourself.

Spend time aboard a unique, rugged, beautiful boat with numerous Atlantic Ocean crossings and a Panama Canal transit under her belt, that has provided a safe and peaceful haven for her crew over the span of five decades in a green, earth friendly fashion.

Request a custom day/time if you wish!

I'm passionate about voyaging and the sailing lifestyle, and living and working on boats around the world. I grew up in Canada sailing and racing small boats, and I have just returned from a year long cruise in Alsager to Mexico's Gold Coast and the Sea of Cortez with my wife, young son, and dog Noah on board. Recently, I have sailed over 15,000 miles, including a passage from Hawaii to Seattle. See more photos on Instagram @sanfranciscosailingawesomeness.

Where you'll be

Aboard " Alsager ", where you will experience what it means to travel and live aboard a traditionally built ocean going yacht, along with whales, porpoises and seals!

See San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from where they are viewed best - a unique sailboat with a low carbon footprint. Avoid the crowds on land, and see these fantastic landmarks while enjoying a fun sailing experience!

Great little sail! But don't play games! Pack your coat and stay warm. It gets windy and you could get splashed, which is part of the fun, IMO.

Booked this experience for my partner's birthday. I am an SF native and I've never been out on the water in a sail boat. It was a beautiful afternoon with clear skies. We went under the bridge and along the coast in the bay. It was romantic and gorgeous. Evan was professional and guided us throughout the ride, but he also stayed to himself without making the ride about himself. I definitely recommend this experience if you want to tour SF and the bridge in a special way. Be sure to wear layers and a heavy jacket as it gets windy. One group even brought a blanket.

Evan has had many great experiences and it was interesting to hear them. Plus another great angle to view San Francisco and the bay.

Second time sailing with Evan and it was such a treat! I booked another trip to celebrate a friend’s birthday as a gift. She truly enjoyed the experience and gave a different perspective of the bay after living here for most of her life. Highly recommend doing the sunset sailing. It can get cold, so bring layers! Evan is now officially my go-to boat guy in the Bay Area - I love taking friends sailing!
