Join us for this distinctive once a month sail in honor of the full moon. Underway for a 3 hour leisurely sail, take in the views of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Islands. Experience the magic of the sunset and the moonrise.

Sturgeon Moon- August

Sunset 8:11pm

Moonrise 8:56pm

The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.

CASH ONLY bar available for California Wines, Craft Beers and Non Alcoholic Beverages. We do not accept Credit Cards or outside beverages on the deck of the this traditional girl! NO OUTSIDE BEVERAGES ALLOWED.
