What you'll do

Voyage around the Bay on a relaxing boat ride

Enjoy a relaxing sail while soaking in breathtaking views overlooking Sausalito, Belvedere, Angel Island, and the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll get the opportunity to learn introductory sailing skills, given the chance to take the helm and drive the boat or just sit back and enjoy the sights.

During the sail you'll see an abundance of wildlife; including seals, sea lions, multiple species of birds and the occasional harbor porpoise. We've even spotted humpback whales on a few occasions during whale season. It's the perfect way to unwind and will be an experience you'll never forget. Please be sure to contact the host if you'd like to modify the starting time or customize the experience in anyway.

I've sailed to 37 countries, and experienced diverse cultures while pursuing my passion for both sailing and surfing. I look forward to sharing my extensive sailing background with you aboard my refurbished 1968 Bristol Corsair out on the Bay.

Great Time Sailing with Ryan! It was fun learning about sailing and conversing with him about his experiences; as he has been sailing for most of his life. Idyllic views of the Golden Gate bridge, Angel Island, and Sausalito with the added benefit of seeing dolphins and seals from the boat.

I booked this experience with Ryan for my wife’s 50the birthday. We LOVED the experience! Ryan did a great job making us feel at ease and giving us insider tips on sailing. We had the best view of the Golden Gate bridge, serene sailing through Sausalito and overall just an amazing time. Would highly recommend Ryan and his wonderful boat if you ever want to do something out of the ordinary.

We went out with Ryan for a company sailing outing. What could have been a dry and boring day turned into a fun afternoon. Ryan invited us to take the wheel and steer and work with him on the sails if we wanted. Which was perfect since one of my teammates was an experienced sailor who was excited to sail in the Bay for the first time. Throughout the afternoon, we exchanged stories with Ryan and he was any easy, warm guy to chat with. By the end, we couldn’t help but enjoy a final toast altogether with him before taking off. Highly recommend this experience!!! Very fun and chill!

Captain Ryan’s sail around the Bay exceeded all expectations. Prior to we got detailed info and meet up was super easy. Ryan was awesome with our six year old son who helped out with the sailing. Always felt safe and Ryan clearly knows his craft. Can’t wait to come back and go again!

We had a wonderful time aboard Ryan's boat. From the very start he was friendly but professional and shared his knowledge of the waters of San Francisco bay with us. The boat was well-equipped and handled with skill and ease. Sailing under the Golden Gate bridge was a never-to-be-forgotten experience, with seals, sealions and porpoises as accompaniment. Our time on the water was over all too soon and we came away with wonderful memories of a magical morning.
