If you want to experience sailing on the bay this is the way to do it. Very intimate, and close to the water, and not like standing on tugboat like some other tours. Friendly crew and having a couple beverages while viewing the Golden Gate Bridge from the water is unforgettable.

It was nice. The weather wasn't the best to see the bridge and islands. We sailed south on a steady flow. They provided warm coats and blankets. The beers helped warm me up! There was no socialization from the crew. It was very quiet with no communication as to where we were going and if there was anything else to learn about. We had fun anyway. :)
