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.

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.

Don’t even think about it... just book it!!!! Had the best experience ever. Ryan is awesome, super down to earth and knows what he’s doing! My friends and I had the best time on the water, not to mention the stunning views of the city and the Golden Gate! I will definitely rebook in the near future!

With the Covid restrictions off and on throughout 2020 this was a perfect escape adventure to be able to sail on the SF Bay with Ryan hosting. He was the perfect host, making it easy to connect and communicate, and he also provided good directions. Ryan assured that we were all masked, maintained social distances and provided hand gel. I feel like I added a new friend as Ryan told many stories and explained how he acquired his skills and passion for sailing. I was a little disappointed that the wind conditions were light but it did not take much away from the day as we sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge. I highly recommend a trip with Ryan.

Adventure is still out there! With Covid rendering nearly every activity unavailable, this charter was the perfect break from the mundane these days. We initially thought we may have to cancel due to weather forecast, but Ryan was kind enough to wait it out a bit to see if our charter was still possible. We are thankful the winds were kind to us and we were able to sail, since this was my boyfriends birthday present. We got the full experience! Calm, beautiful sailing and then a small pocket of weather hit us which made things that much more fun and interesting! Ryan was extremely apologetic for the rain and rough seas, which no one could have predicted, but nothing to apologize for! We loved it and made our sailing experience all that more authentic and exciting! I highly recommend taking a cruise out with Ryan. He’s kind, knowledgeable and cares about your experience with him. If you’re open for unexpected adventure then book this experience! You made a great memory for us this year.

I booked this sailing experience as a birthday gift to my boyfriend, and it was the best gift possible during the pandemic. Ryan was very attentive to us, encouraging us to participate in steering the boat. He shared his experience sailing and competing in regattas, which was informative and engaging. Ryan was also mindful about giving us space and quietness so we could just sit back and relax. We sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge and got to see porpoises and sea lions in the bay. The boat was very clean and had a sanitizer handy. We sailed with another couple, and keeping safe distance on the boat was easy. Everybody was wearing masks at all times. Thank you, Ryan, for a great experience!
