Vad du kommer att göra

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.

PLEASE NOTE: In the winter season the weather can be warm with nice breezes. In the event of rain or inclement weather I can cancel the cruise and you will get a full refund!

I am a USCG Licensed Captain. I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for four years and have been 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 micro climates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!

Var ni kommer att vara

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.

We had a fantastic time sailing around the SF Bay with David! David was super knowledgable and engaging, and he took us to some really cool hidden spots around the bay that I never even knew existed. We learned the basics of sailing, and David was just an all-around pleasure to spend the day with. He was super engaging and knowledgable, and had lots of great stories to share. Would highly recommend this AirBnB experience!

Beautiful weather in February. This was our first time sailing! Definitely bring a jacket and wear pants though since the wind does pick up on the water. David was a wonderful host and even made us hot chocolate and brought homemade cookies! It was cool to see all the commercial shipping vessels on the water.

We had a magical time sailing with David. Not only were the locations beautiful, but David also taught us about sailing he is very knowledgable learnt some sailing jargon which was fun :). He made us feel very welcome, loved the snacks and warm cookies. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking for a unique sailing experience.
