$32 for a Two-Hour Local-History and Bay-Wildlife Sailing Tour ($65 Value)
On Saturdays at 10 a.m., passengers depart from downtown Sausalito on the Freda B, a classic 78-foot, gaff-rigged coastal schooner, for a two-hour cruise along the Bay. As the sun shines over the Golden Gate Bridge, guides point out landmarks⎯such as the Marin Headlands, Coit Tower, Alcatraz, and Angel Island⎯and tell stories of the people who shaped San Francisco Bay. Wildlife sightings often include harbor porpoise, seabirds, sea lions, and seals. Guests can enjoy complimentary pastries, coffee, hot chocolate, and juice, as well as alcoholic beverages available for cash purchase onboard. Tours conclude around noon and run Saturdays only.
