What you'll do

Enjoy a relaxing sail while soaking in breathtaking views overlooking Sausalito, Belvedere, Angel Island, and the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll get the opportunity to learn introductory sailing skills, given the chance to take the helm and drive the boat or just sit back and enjoy the sights.

During the sail you'll see an abundance of wildlife; including seals, sea lions, multiple species of birds and the occasional harbor porpoise. We've even spotted humpback whales on a few occasions during whale season. It's the perfect way to unwind and will be an experience you'll never forget. Please be sure to contact the host if you'd like to modify the starting time or customize the experience in anyway.
Other things to note
Please wear flat, closed-toe shoes with rubber soles. Dress comfortably and in layers as the weather can change quite quickly. It's okay to bring your own food and drinks along for the sail.

Ryan was an amazing host. We had a wonderful time out on the Bay on his boat. He was very knowledgeable about the Bay Area, the wildlife, and boating. We will definitely be back.

Ryan was incredibly accommodating and friendly, and made us feel at home on his beautiful boat. He happily answered our questions about sailing in the area and invited us to help out with sailing the boat. It felt like a friend taking us out sailing for the day - thank you!

The afternoon we spent on San Francisco Bay with Ryan was an outstanding way to celebrate my husband's birthday. We viewed a big range of wildlife, including seals, sea lions, harbor porpoises and even a humpback whale. Ryan great company and knows a lot about the area.

Ryan was an awesome host for this experience. He connected with us a day before, and the day of, to give us some direction on where to meet and when. the experience itself was incredible. The day was clear and sunny. So we were able to see some wildlife, and also get a clear view of the bay. Temperature varied from start to finish, but Ryan prepared us well and had blankets on hand to help. There was also hand sanitizer and we were able to social distance as necessary. I would definitely do this again and recommend to anyone looking for a sailing experience in the bay.

What a wonderful experience! This was our first time sailing, and Ryan made it relaxing and fun. We lucked out with beautiful weather and enjoyed our time in the sun and breeze. We enjoyed seeing everything (the Golden Gate, Sausalito, Angel Island, and Belvedere) from the water, and of course, being able to steer the boat for a bit! Ryan is really passionate about sailing and we enjoyed hearing some stories about his sailing adventures. We would highly recommend this experience!

We brought our family out on Ryan’s sail boat—my parents in their 70s and my two young boys (7 & 3 y/o). It was a wonderful outing and our second trip with Ryan. He was a wonderful host and his boat was lovely. This was the perfect family outing in an incredible SF Bay setting.
