Climb aboard the classic schooner Seaward and enjoy San Francisco and Sausalito from the water. We offer a variety of 2.5-hour sails around San Francisco Bay. These public sails are open to all ages, no sailing experience is necessary and we welcome individuals, groups, and families.
Sail by famous San Francisco sights such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Angel Island. You can sit back and enjoy the view, or get involved in sailing the schooner with the help of our professional crew.
Proceeds help support our educational programs and provide scholarship to underserved youth.
Tickets: $60 per adult, $30 per youth ages 6-12, youth 6 and under sail free

What to Bring:
It can be very cold on the water. If you bring warm layers and a windbreaker or rain jacket (if rain is in the forecast), you should be comfortable. Please wear closed-toe shoes, for flip flops and high heels are a safety hazard and are not permitted on the vessel. If you bring a hat, please check you are able to secure it in the wind. Many baseball caps are lost at sea.
Photos and Cameras:
Please feel welcome to take photos and share by tagging us in social media. While sailing, you will be in a dynamic environment and exposed to the elements. Although it is rare to get wet on deck, please protect your equipment accordingly.
Once you make your reservation online, you are confirmed and will receive a confirmation email. You may cancel up to 7 days before your sail for a full refund. Cancellations less than 7 days from scheduled sail are non-refundable. Refunds will not be issued for no-shows.
Seaward sails rain or shine, unless the captain decides that inclement weather will compromise vessel safety. Rain or a chance of rain does not mean that your sail will be cancelled. If the captain decides it is safe to sail and the client wants to cancel, the above cancellation terms apply.
Please note that Bay Area weather is characterized by microclimates, and that rain in one area does not indicate that it will be raining in Sausalito. Also, it is common for morning rain to clear up by late morning or early afternoon. Some of our best sails happen right after the rain!
