Aboard the stalwart Privateer—the only monohull sailboat on Fisherman’s Wharf licensed to carry more than six passengers—guests sail past Alcatraz, Angel Island, Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, and, finally, the city front. This trip also sails along the America’s Cup race course. The ship fits up to 28 passengers total, and the trip includes two beers or wines per guest.<p>

Every Saturday and Sunday, this cruise departs from Pier 39 at 10 a.m. to explore the bay’s sights, sounds, and hip fish hangouts. Highlights include Fisherman’s Wharf, Aquatic Park, the Marina District, and Crissy Field. This trip also sails along the America’s Cup race course. At 11 a.m., the captain positions the vessel precisely beneath the Golden Gate Bridge for a champagne toast.<p>

San Francisco Sailing Company

With its impenetrable fog, gusty wind, and rough currents, San Francisco Bay is known the world over as one of the most challenging places to sail. It's for this very reason that the San Francisco Sailing Company's Sailing School has set up shop here: "If you can sail the San Francisco Bay," they declare on their website, "you [can] sail anywhere in the world." The seasoned instructors instill what they know thoroughly and quickly. In fact, after completing just two two-day classes, students at the school earn their ASA certification and the confidence to sail the Bay on their own. The school offers loftier training, as well, providing the know-how needed to charter a multiday cruise on a big boat or navigate out on the open water.


The crew was really funny but still professional.

The booze was plentiful, the captain and first mate were hilarious, the bay was nice.
