O que você fará

Late summer and early fall offer some of the warmest days and best sailing of the year!

Due to COVID-19 I am limiting the number of guests to allow for maximum social distancing. Hand sanitizer is on board. Thank you.

Welcome aboard my Downeaster 38, "Fred B. Wood"! Designed by renowned naval architect, Henry Morschlad, this Downeaster is in exceptionally good condition. Downeaster's are known as being stout and seaworthy bluewater cruisers. They can be found all over the globe. This experience is available for up to six guests! (Please note that I recently upgraded to a larger Downeaster 38 from an Ericson 27 which is shown in some of the photos!)

Your three-hour adventure starts at Jack London Square. The route will depend on wind conditions; however, our goal is to cross the bay to see the marvelous sites of South Beach Harbor (home of the SF Giants), the financial district, the bay bridge, and then Treasure Island. During the tour, you'll see amazing wildlife; including, flocks of pelicans, sea lions, and the occasional dolphin!

This is an active experience! I will review the basics of sailing (wind angle, general terms for operating the vessel, and rules of the road). You will take a turn at the helm (wheel), manage the sheets that control the sails, and raise and lower the sails. Naturally, you are also welcome to just sit back and enjoy the amazing views.

I am a USCG Licensed Captain. I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for six years and have been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the microclimates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!

Onde você estará

We'll depart from historic Jack London Square and (depending on wind conditions) begin our sail in the Oakland Estuary. We'll see the ramps where the Liberty Ships were built by Kaiser shipyards in WW II. As we head west we'll pass by the houseboats of Alameda. We'll then head west and with the wind on our beam cross the bay to see South Beach Harbor, the Bay Bridge, and Treasure Island before running downwind back to Jack London Square.

Dave was an excellent host on his sale boat. He is a very experienced captain. He has hot snacks, crackers and cold drinks ready for us when we went on the boat and cooked us chocolate cookies on the way back. He took the time to explain to us the safety measures, components of sail boat and basic information about how to sail a boat. He took to excellent location with great views of the San Francisco downtown/waterfront, oracle stadium while it had a baseball game going and many other areas around the bay. Was very good value for money. Definitely recommend him for every one and will bring my family to have a tour on his boat.

David was an amazing host that did a wonderful job explaining the in’s and out’s of his boat and how to operate it. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was eager to answer any questions. You would be very luck to spend an afternoon aboard his boat. Great time an excellent host!

Fantastic experience. Dave was very knowledgeable - we learned a lot about his boat, the various ships in the bay, and the environment. The views were spectacular - we got to see the bay bridge in all its glory, treasure island, SF’s skyline, Oracle park, and Oakland’s port. David baked cookies and taquitos which were delicious. And the entire trip felt super safe and comfortable!

Dave was great! Met us at an easy to find location. Provided a great sailing education for the newbies on the boat, was kind and thoughtful (snacks and fresh baked cookies!). Was a great sail on a great vessel ! Thanks Dave!
