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>

The San Francisco Sailing Company

The San Francisco Sailing Company and the San Francisco Sailing School offer charters, sailing tours, and sailing lessons. They provide customers a chance to cruise the Bay as if on their own private yacht, or teach customers how to sail through their American Sailing Association certified facility. On a typical sailing tour, seasoned captains give passengers a memorable experience as they enjoy unique panoramic views of the entire Central San Francisco Bay. Tours pass the water front from Fisherman's Wharf all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge, Aquatic Park, Alcatraz, The Bay Bridge and views of Sausalito, and Angle Island. In sailing lessons, students will learn theory and terminology, as well as spend the majority of the time on the water practicing maneuvers such as tacking and jibing. In two days of lessons, students are half way through Basic Keelboat certification.
