For a relaxing afternoon on the water, hop aboard the Privateer, a truly traditional sailboat, for a semi-private 90-minute cruise of the bay, complete with beer and wine. This double-masted, teak-decked, bronze-fitted beauty holds no more than 28 passengers, so you'll get plenty of personal attention from the skilled and friendly crew as the Privateer glides over to Alcatraz and Angel Island, passes by charming and picturesque Sausalito, parallels the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge and sails past the famous San Francisco skyline on its way back to Pier 39.

You will meet your captain and first mate at Pier 39 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time. They will check you in and then make you comfortable on the Privateer, our lovely double-masted 28-person sailboat. You will motor out of the dock, but once out on the Bay,'your crew will raise the sails!

You will sail past Alcatraz and Angel Island, get a great view of the Bay Bridge, take in the beautiful green landscape of Marin and the picturesque city of Sausalito, sail parallel to the Golden Gate for some great photo opportunities, and then return to views of the San Francisco waterfront before docking again at Pier 39.

While you are out on the water, your first mate will serve you two free beverages - your choice of beer, wine, soft drinks, or water! Our friendly captains and first mates will be happy to answer any questions you might have during your tour, or you can feel free to just sit back, relax, and enjoy our incredible Bay.'

This tour is a great way to relax and see the Bay from a different perspective!
