It's a unique way to experience the Bay's landmark sites, including Angel Island, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and San Francisco.
It's simply a great way to spend the afternoon. Because every Dad, whether they know it or not, would love to spend their Father's Day on a gorgeous sailboat!

We recommend parking in one of the municipal lots surrounding Sausalito Yacht Harbor. Parking costs between $2 and $4 per hour, and Parking Lot #3 (Google Maps) will be the most convenient.
Walk to 100 Bay Street in Sausalito and then continue walking north towards The Spinnaker Restaurant. You'll soon come across a wood boardwalk on your left that will lead you to our dock (look for the two red masts). The Schooner Freda B is located at Sausalito Yacht Harbor, Slip 465, Sausalito, CA 94965 (searchable as "Schooner Freda B" on Google Maps). If you are lost, see your ticket confirmation for the "boat phone" number to call.

Sailing on the San Francisco Bay is weather dependent. We sail in most weather, including cold, wind, fog, and light showers. On occasion, we will need to reschedule a sail due to extreme wind or rain. If this is necessary, you will usually be notified within 24-48 hours of the scheduled sail.
If the Captain must cancel due to weather, our sales team will work with you to reschedule or refund your order. The Captain and Crew monitor the most sophisticated weather channels to make every effort to bring you information in the timeliest manner. We apologize in advance if the weather complicates any special occasion plans.
Due to the popularity of this sail we do not offer guests an option to cancel or reschedule within 7 days. If you need to cancel please do so at least 1 week in advance. For extreme emergency situations within the week of sail, please contact the ticket desk with your reason at firstname.lastname@example.org.
