What to Expect
You’ll begin your cruise at Pier 39, where you’ll meet your captain and first mate. There, you'll board the sailboat Privateer and join a small group of no more than 28 passengers.   During the cruise, you can enjoy two drinks—your choice of beer, wine or soda—as you glide through the calm waters of the San Francisco Bay. You'll sail past Alcatraz and Angel island and see both spans of the Bay Bridge separated by the man-made Treasure Island. As you journey north, take in the vibrant green hillsides of Marin County and the houseboat communities of Sausalito. Then, your captain will circle back toward Pier 39 and the San Francisco waterfront passing the Golden Gate Bridge as the sun sets into the Pacific. It’s the ideal time take a snapshot to remember your trip.

this was an incredible decision we made to do this sail on Valentines day! it was a clear day, although super cold which we knew it would be - it was super enjoyable, with blankets and warm jackets provided by the crew. Great music playing, and perfectly visible sights. :)
