We sail San Francisco Bay all year round. There is a lot more consistent wind in the summer months, meaning it may be wise to schedule your trip early in the day, as it can be quite strong in the late afternoon.
Weather conditions change constantly, so for your comfort, we recommend layered clothing, a warm jacket, and rubber soled shoes. Layers are a must, synthetic fabrics are preferred. Nothing is as cold and miserable as wet jeans. A good windbreaker is your friend on the Bay. Sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and your camera are also advisable.
We can arrange pickups at different locations around the bay at extra cost. We have to account for our travel time. We can discuss the details, but generally, the additional charge is $150.
You are welcome to bring your own food and drink. Please let us know in advance, so that we do not duplicate our efforts.
The fog is a real concern on San Francisco Bay. It is entirely at the Captain’s discretion to cancel a charter because of weather. It doesn’t happen often, but the safety of my passengers comes first.If a charter must be canceled because of weather, we offer to reschedule. If it is not possible to reschedule then the fee is refunded at 75%.
We offer all our guests snacks such as chips and hummus,grapes, dolmas, feta cheese and nuts. Two complimentary beverages are included as part of our standard sailing package.

For an additional fee we can also offer the following cooked on our aft grill:
- Gourmet burgers or chicken

Children and pets are allowed with proper life jackets. We have child size life vests which fit kids as small as forty pounds. Children under that size must bring their own life jackets and parents are entirely responsible for their child’s well-being. All pets must bring a life jacket.
Cancellations and weather: A fifty percent deposit is required at the time of booking and is not refundable if the client cancels with less than 72-hour notice. If a charter must be cancelled due to weather conditions, the deposit will be refunded minus a 25% preparation fee, or the trip may be rescheduled.
