  • Hidden Stairways of San Francisco
    The perfect experience for the whole family! This breathtaking 2 mile walking tour of San Francisco's hidden stairways is the #1 rated Airbnb Experience in the Bay Area, loved by both locals and tourists alike. See gorgeous mosaic tiled steps and hear the stories behind them, then take in stunning 360° views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park and downtown San Francisco. You'll also discover beautiful neighborhoods and gardens that many locals are not aware of and that tourists rarely see. Oh, and you might even go home with a succulent! I'll provide commentary, context and some history along the way. Generally SF is dry May-October. There can be fog in the summertime, mostly in the morning. Temps rarely above 70F (21C) or below 50F (10C). Rain may cancel. Guests should be reasonably fit. Though we don't cover many miles, some of the terrain is steep. It will be necessary to carry small children as strollers are not suitable. If you bring a guest that’s under 18, it’s your responsibility to make sure the activities they participate in are age-appropriate. Instagram: @hiddenstairsSF or hiddenstairsSF@gmail.com

  • A Sunset Cruise on San Francisco Bay
    COVID 19 Update! There is a great deal of outdoor space aboard Alameda Star. Hand Sanitizer is available. 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.

  • Make a Flower Crown or Fantasy Headdress
    In less than 2 hours you will make art that you can wear. You will have an amazing headpiece using materials that will last for years. Our students have made headdresses to wear for weddings, Day of the Dead, Coachella, Burning Man, High Tea or just because they were going to SF and wanted to wear flowers in their hair. Even if you don't think you are creative, we promise you will be amazed at what you design. The only skill needed is the ability to use a glue gun. We have tricks and tips to make the process fun and easy. We have a curated selection of faux flowers, butterflies, feathers, ribbons, shells and things that sparkle. You can choose to make a floral crown style headdress, a fascinator, a mermaid headdress or a halo zip tie headdress. All of our materials are long lasting so you can wear your headdress for years to come. Bonus: you will be making your headdress on a recycled mannequin head which you can keep to display your headdress on.

  • I sailed San Francisco Bay!
    PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 I am limiting the number of guests to allow for maximum social distancing. Please contact me for larger single parties up to six guests. Thanks for your understanding. Welcome aboard my Downeaster 38, "Fred B. Wood"! Designed by renowned naval architect, Henry Morschlad, this Downeaster is in exceptionally good condition. Downeaster's are known as being stout and seaworthy bluewater cruisers. They can be found all over the globe. This experience is available for up to six guests! (Please note that I recently upgraded to a larger Downeaster 38 from an Ericson 27 which is shown in some of the photos!) Your three-hour adventure starts at Jack London Square. The route will depend on wind conditions; however, our goal is to cross the bay to see the marvelous sites of South Beach Harbor (home of the SF Giants), the financial district, the bay bridge, and then Treasure Island. During the tour, you'll see amazing wildlife; including, flocks of pelicans, sea lions, and the occasional dolphin! This is an active experience! I will review the basics of sailing (wind angle, general terms for operating the vessel, and rules of the road). You will take a turn at the helm (wheel), manage the sheets that control the sails, and raise and lower the sails. Naturally, you are also welcome to just sit back and enjoy the amazing views.
