Spirit of Sacramento
Ably helmed by three-year veteran skipper Captain Mark Kagel, the Spirit of Sacramento ferries passengers on an aquatic journey past the skyline vistas and waterfront scenery of the San Francisco Bay. Captain Pat Mahoney takes on the role of historical tour guide, bringing San Francisco's maritime past to life with lively storytelling skills, a rich imagination, and a refrigerator box labeled "Time Machine.” Guests peer out from three decks of indoor and outdoor seating as the vessel circumnavigates Yerba Buena Island, steams past Treasure Island and the America's Cup racecourse, and offers up views of the city skyline framed by the warm Pacific sunset. Three captains are onboard at all times for comfort and safety, and four separate restrooms cut down on long waits for the bathroom. During each voyage, crew members serve up tasty cocktails and beverages at the full-service bar, and quell hunger pangs with tasty meals available for purchase.
