What you'll do

Winter and spring offer great sailing with warm weather, clear skies, and a chance for perfect wind.

Our Catalina 27 sloop delivers an unforgettable two-hour private sailing charter featuring spectacular views from San Francisco Bay. You will be welcomed aboard by her fun-loving and informative Captain, Larry, a U.S. Coast Guard licensed 30-year veteran of sailing on the Bay. During the sail Captain Larry will share his unique understanding of San Francisco Bay.

We cast off from Treasure Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Raising sails in historic Clipper Cove and heading northwest you will enjoy wide open Bay vistas of Angel Island, Alcatraz, Sausalito, Mt. Tamalpais, and the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge. Expect to see seals, sea lions, harbor porpoises, pelicans, and possibly a humpback whale!

As we approach the San Francisco waterfront you are rewarded with a unique view of the city's signature skyline. Next, we head south along San Francisco’s historic Embarcadero for a postcard view of the 1898 Ferry Building clock tower, followed by two thrilling passages under the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

No sailing experience is required to enjoy this family friendly outing but participation is welcome. Inquire for alternative itineraries.

I am a US Coast Guard licenced captain (Master, 50 ton near coastal) with over 30 years experience on San Francisco Bay and beyond. I recently returned from a two year sailing adventure with my wife and two children on the Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean as Captain of a 50 foot sloop. Our best memories from that trip were connecting with local people in the many ports we visited. I hope to continue making those connections as I share my love for sailing and the beauty of San Francisco Bay with both novice and experienced sailors from near and far.

    Larry made the experience worth it. The views were great and Larry made sure we seen the best angles. It’s obvious that he is more than qualified to set sail anywhere and that made my wife and I very comfortable. When traveling back to San Francisco again, Larry will be on our itinerary for sure!

    We had a blast sailing with Captain Larry! He’s friendly and knowledgeable, and taught us a lot about sailing. He even let us take the wheel a few times! Would highly recommend this experience

    I booked this as something fun for my cousins to do when visiting San Francisco and it was worth it. A couple of days later and we are still talking about this experience. Skipper Larry was fantastic and he shared a lot of valuable insights during the trips. Highly recommend this experience!

    I proposed to my girlfriend on Larry's boat, and she said yes. Larry patiently listened to my requests and helped me turn my plan into reality. Can't thank Larry enough for this magical experience!

    Great sailing trip with Larry! We had a spectacular sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge and the lights of SF and the Bay Bridge were an additional treat. We felt very safe with Larry and the sailboat. We would do it again without hesitation.
