Choose Between Two Options

During the tour, captains take groups of up to six passengers on a three-hour sailing journey across the San Francisco Bay. The vessel sails by Angel Island, Alcatraz, and along the waterfront toward the Golden Gate Bridge. After this scenic voyage, groups lead by the captain walk approximately 100 feet to The Winery SF on Treasure Island to sample various potables from the award-winning winery; hard liquor and red wine cannot be consumed onboard the catamaran. Cruises depart at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday–Sunday.<p>

The two-day introductory course teaches the basics of keelboat sailing over a total of 14 hours. Classes of four or fewer learn the mechanics of sailing and get hands-on practice guiding the vessel through the light and moderate winds of the Oakland Estuary. Instructors also cover US Coast Guard requirements and American Sailing Association recommendations.

Afterguard Sailing Academy

Sailing out of Central Basin in Oakland or Treasure Island, Afterguard Sailing Academy's Intro to Sailing courses are a great way to get a taste of the passion held by so many people across the world. For more in-depth instruction, multi-day courses are available, giving participants the chance to learn some of the knots, lingo, and practices.

Thanks to the academy's team of seasoned captains, tours are only one way to experience sailing's thrills. Their instructors also teach comprehensive American Sailing Association certification courses, which aim to transition ordinary passengers to crew members and skippers for more independent sailing adventures of all types. As students progress, instructors teach more advanced lessons, such as bay basics and ocean sailing. Aside from these lessons, the captains also run a nonprofit sailing academy for youth.

Good basic sailing class. Our instructor Malik was very patient and knowledgeable.
Amy G. · September 6, 2015
Loved Capt. Mary and Steve. The whole trip was so easy and fun. Malik took our reservation over the phone. I was nervous and he reassured me and was so helpful with what to where and bring. Great customer service When we arrived Capt. Mary greeted us and checked us and then Malik walked us to the boat sharing his sailing knowledge with us. Then Steve took over and walked us through the A,B,C of sailing with great passion and knowledge. We felt safe and in quite capable hands. We learned a lot and were even able to help Tack. Thanks so much Captain Mary, Steve and Malik I will recommend to all my friends and we will be back for more lessons. John and Jackie

Very nice people who did not require a lot of notice to go sailing. It was a great introduction to the most basic parts of sailing, letting us know whether or not it is worth taking more complete lessons.
