What you'll do

COVID 19 Update! There is a great deal of outdoor space aboard Alameda Star. Hand Sanitizer is available and masks are mandatory. In order to maximize safety I am running single party groups only. I recommend groups of three to six guests. Thanks for your understanding!

Welcome aboard a little ship, a 40 Ft Trawler. "Alameda Star" is a very comfortable twin diesel trawler that is comfortable, roomy, and leisurely--about 10kts.

Up to six guests can take a sunset cruise with an experienced USCG Licensed Captain exploring the wonders of San Francisco Bay. We'll depart at 5:00 pm from Jack London Square in Oakland. We'll first explore Oakland's Inner Harbor and cruise down to Coast Guard Island. We'll then head west along Alameda's coastline and see the Liberty Ship ramps and Alameda Houseboats. As we head west we'll enter the shipping channel before crossing the bay heading towards South Beach Harbor. The harbor is also at the foot of AT&T Stadium, home of the SF Giants. We'll tour through South Beach Harbor which offers spectacular views of downtown before heading under the Bay Bridge towards the Ferry Building. Heading back across the bay we'll see sea lions on Treasure Island while the sun sets to the west.

I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for four years and have been been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides history, beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the micro climates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!

What can I say, this was the experience of a lifetime! Captain David was extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable throughout the entire trip. I’ve been in the Bay Area 10+ years and this is the first time I’ve witnessed how wonderful the actual Bay really is. 11/10 recommended

This was our second time sailing with David, and both times have been amazing! We booked the boat with our 6-person Covid bubble, and it was a wonderful way to spend the day together while still being safe and social distancing. The boat had tons of room to hang out, see the beautiful views, and relax. The boat is really spacious, clean, and comfortable, and David is such a pleasure to chat with. He also brought us snacks and drinks and did everything to make sure we felt comfortable and enjoyed our time on the Bay.

David took us on a boat ride around the bay for my dad’s 70th birthday. The afternoon was perfect! He shared information and stories about the surroundings, provided yummy food, and made sure our trip was absolutely wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for a more successful boating adventure.
