You’ll begin your cruise at Pier 39, where you’ll meet your captain and first mate at 6pm. 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 complimentary 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.

It was an amazing experience.I had taken my family and parents for the trip. The weather was just perfect and the crew hosted everyone very courteously. I wouldn't mind hopping on the boat again.

Beautiful. Very criendly crew. No commentary.

Beautiful. Friendly crew. My teens were somewhat bored as there isn’t commentary but that also gives a more peaceful setting. They’re very open to answering questions and taking photos of guests though.

Roughness depends on how windy it is. I have gone on three of these trips, and only one was terribly choppy.
