What you'll do

We'll meet at Pier 1 ½ for morning coffee and sail past Alcatraz to Angel Island, both of which are steeped in San Francisco history. We will take in the iconic bridges from the water, have some amazing photo ops and see some aquatic wildlife like seals, seabirds and porpoises. Enjoy a yummy organic picnic on board while we sail to a unique maritime co-op community in Sausalito, meet some of its members aboard their houseboats, and learn about sustainable living. I'll then walk you to the ferry to complete your circumnavigation of the Bay with a fast ride back to the Ferry Building! Much of the sail is narrated with explanations of what you see around you, but there is also time to relax and unwind and just soak in the sites. If you want to try sailing and take the helm, let me know! I try to make the ride as pleasant and dry as possible, but be aware that on any boating adventure you may get wet, so dress accordingly and get ready to enjoy a little adventure!

Heather

I am a US Coast Guard licensed captain with my own charter company on San Francisco Bay. I have sailed these waters for over twenty years and have lots of sea stories to tell with over 5000 nautical miles of ocean sailing experience in the California and Baja coasts. As the owner of Fine Day for Sailing Charters, I also live aboard my boat in a maritime co-operative with my 3 kids and offer a unique perspective on sustainable living and maintaining a tiny footprint. I love the life aquatic and love to share it with travelers and locals alike!
