There are many ways to witness the San Francisco Bay's splendor, but few rival the dazzling displays seen on a Just Dreaming luxury tour. Built in 1963 by the master ship builders of Stephens Brothers of Stockton, the 63-foot private charter harkens back to more sophisticated times as the skyline, bridges, and Bay lights it passes fill its guests with old-fashioned wonder. Glamorous from bow to stern, its decks inspire romantic moments and public soirées with classic lines and a wooden hull that helps it glide though the water like a buttered dolphin. The interior is equally stunning, with riches including a full galley, three state rooms, and a main salon fit for The Great Gatsby. To demonstrate its prowess at sea, the ship embarks on day trips and overnight excursions where up to 42 passengers can savor the Delta waterways and catch the eyes of breaching humpback whales at the Bay's outer limits.
