Event description


Shanghai your friends and step back into time for a unique history-themed sail aboard the Schooner Freda B! During the Gold Rush, the Port of San Francisco became a rowdy and dangerous place for those seeking new fortunes. Learn more about the lawless past buried below the 'City by the Bay.'

Along the way, you'll see the Bay's most iconic sights: the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Alcatraz, Fishermans Wharf, Fort Mason, Coit Tower, and the San Francisco Skyline. Sunday mornings are also great for observing marine wildlife, including seals, sea lions, harbor porpoises, sea birds, and local boaters.

Then to top it all off, you'll return in-time to enjoy brunch at one of Sausalito's many delicious restaurants, such as Cibo, Taste of Rome, Bayside Cafe, Lighthouse Cafe, or Anchorage 5.
