What you'll do

We will set sail just after sunset to catch the full moon rising over the San Francisco Bay and take in the city lights as the skyline turns to night- an unforgettable experience! There is nothing like a full moon on the water, and you must be at the right place at the right time to take it in! This experience is only offered a few days each month as the rising full moon over the water can only be seen at specific times. We will sail out of Sausalito on the North end of the Golden Gate Bridge and take in sweeping views of the city at night including the beautiful moving light art installation on the Bay Bridge (sometimes fog obscures this view but the fog itself is equally beautiful on the water). Bring your own wine or beer if you like or celebrate your special occasion with champagne and dessert aboard the yacht while we take in the full moon on the water. You do not need any sailing experience to participate in this little adventure, just some warm layers as it can get chilly at night (Blankets provided).

Learn more about Heather

Heather

I’m a coast guard licensed captain (Master, 100 ton near coastal), mom of 3, full time liveaboard, professional sailor and naturalist. I grew up sailing in Boston harbor, but I’ve been sailing San Francisco and the California coast for the last twenty years and I love to show off our amazing “backyard” from our amazing sailboat home. This is a magical city by day but even more magical by night as the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and cityscape are lit up through the ever-elusiveness of fog, making a night sail here something truly unique and memorable! I sail these waters every day and have an intimate understanding of the tides and currents, local winds and the nuances of nature that you can only experience on the water. Very few other charter boats sail at night so we often have the bay to ourselves in what is otherwise busy water.

What's included

Food
Non-alcoholic drinks, sparkling water and assorted sweets provided and you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks if…
Equipment
Lifejackets and warm blankets are provided, and the boat is equipped with all coast guard-mandated safety equipment.

Where you'll be

We will do a loop around the San Francisco central bay starting and ending at our maritime cooperative marina in Sausalito. Highlights of this sail are seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island lighthouse and the Bay Bridge lit up at night, and of course, the full moon rising!

More tips
