Climb aboard this classic schooner, an 82-foot double-masted sailing yacht to explore the bay in the "greenest" way possible - wind power! Sit back and relax, enjoy delicious snacks and beverages, and get involved in supporting sea turtles and a cleaner, healthier ocean.

Seaward's and the Sea Turtle Restoration Project’s crew of professional educators will also be offering optional learning stations in ocean conservation, plastic pollution science and removal from the sea, and bay ecology and navigation. Conservation leaders from SeaTurtles.org will be available to discuss the campaign activities behind the passage of the Leatherback Marine Reptile Bill last year and current actions we can all take to save sea turtles and work towards a cleaner, healthier future for San Francisco Bay and all ocean habitats.
We are pleased to be pouring a very special beverage to those guests over 21 years old.
Climb aboard the classic schooner "Seaward" and see San Francisco from the water! Take in an unmatched view of the city front as you 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 with sailing the schooner with the help of our professional captain and crew. Complimentary wine, cheese, and light refreshments will be served.
A relaxing way to end the week!
