Wat je gaat doen

Due to COVID-19 I am limiting the number of guests to allow for maximum social distancing. Hand sanitizer is on board. Thank you.

Welcome aboard my Downeaster 38, "Fred B. Wood"! Designed by renowned naval architect, Henry Morschlad, this Downeaster is in exceptionally good condition. Downeaster's are known as being stout and seaworthy bluewater cruisers. They can be found all over the globe. This experience is available for up to six guests! (Please note that I recently upgraded to a larger Downeaster 38 from an Ericson 27 which is shown in some of the photos!)

Your three-hour adventure starts at Jack London Square. The route will depend on wind conditions; however, our goal is to cross the bay to see the marvelous sites of South Beach Harbor (home of the SF Giants), the financial district, the bay bridge, and then Treasure Island. During the tour, you'll see amazing wildlife; including, flocks of pelicans, sea lions, and the occasional dolphin!

This is an active experience! I will review the basics of sailing (wind angle, general terms for operating the vessel, and rules of the road). You will take a turn at the helm (wheel), manage the sheets that control the sails, and raise and lower the sails. Naturally, you are also welcome to just sit back and enjoy the amazing views.

I am a USCG Licensed Captain. I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for six years and have been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the microclimates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll depart from historic Jack London Square and (depending on wind conditions) begin our sail in the Oakland Estuary. We'll see the ramps where the Liberty Ships were built by Kaiser shipyards in WW II. As we head west we'll pass by the houseboats of Alameda. We'll then head west and with the wind on our beam cross the bay to see South Beach Harbor, the Bay Bridge, and Treasure Island before running downwind back to Jack London Square.

Captain David was a personable and knowledgeable host, happy to answer questions, and thoughtful about experience details. The ride was beautiful and leisurely (didn't feel rushed) and thoughtfully planned out. I'd definitely consider a second trip with a private group of friends in the future. Thanks, Captain Dave!

This was an excellent sailing trip! From being able to steer the boat, learning all about sailing, and eating the tasty snacks provided, this is definitely a well worth it Airbnb experience to reserve.

Great experience! I may save myself the expense of joining a sailing club and just go out with Dave 1x a month (especially if he adds new routes and/or lunch stops in SF???) Thanks for a great time!

David and his sail boat are quite the pair! I took my bestie for her birthday and she’s still talking about it the next day. We got some great photos and even more amazing memories. David even made us warm cookies in the end :) Absolutely fabulous host and trip guide. His sailboat was in immaculate condition. HIGHLY recommend!

This is such a fun experience! David is a fun and friendly host that is happy to teach you hands-on sailing techniques or leave you alone to enjoy the fresh air and epic views. Will not disappoint!

We booked this trip very last minute and it was such a fun sailing trip. David was so happy and friendly. He was also an excellent sailing host. We had a really good time and I would recommend this adventure to anyone who is in Oakland/San Francisco.
