Every day, millions of tons of snowmelt from high up in the Sierras rushes hundreds of miles downstream and pours into the San Francisco Bay. There, it slams into a surge of seawater to form an ecosystem at once constant and constantly changing. It’s there that the photographers and naturalists of SF Bay Photo Club and Eco Tours set out to observe and capture stunning images on daily adventures.
Aboard the stalwart Outer Limits (Sausalito departures) or Kitty Cat (San Francisco departures), captains skipper wildlife-seeking tours that might spy marine wildlife including local sea lions or harbor porpoises. The boat’s two pontoons make for a smoother ride than a schooner or a boatorcycle, and the spacious deck and large-windowed cabin make beautiful views bountiful. As they travel through some of California's most scenic waters, the ships sail past such landmarks as the Golden Gate Bridge, Point Bonita, and Alcatraz Island.
