Angel Island - Dock or Moor and Go Explore!

Sail to Angel Island and Explore

Angel Island State Park is the largest natural island in the San Francisco Bay and is an attractive destination for bay boaters. Ayala Cove, accessible within Racoon Straight on the north side of the island, has the largest public docks and moorings on the bay and is well-protected from wind and swell. This makes Ayala Cove an ideal location for your overnight charter experience.

Treat your friends and family to a premier bay adventure with a sail to Angel Island. Dock or moor at Ayala Cove and barbeque on the boat or enjoy a picnic ashore. Explore the island's hiking trails and historic landmarks and let the spectacular views of the surrounding Bay Area take your breath away. 

 


DOCKING AT AYALA COVE

Available on a first-come, first- served basis, the docks offer 19 boat slips for day use (8:00 AM to sunset). The fee for day use is $15,* whether for a short time or the full day. If paying cash, bring exact change in case the register is closed. If a Ranger is not available, you may pay at the "Self Pay" station near the head of the boat dock. The California State Park Annual Day-Use Pass can be used to pay day use dock fees. Fees go toward maintaining the Cove.

MOORING AT AYALA COVE

Moorings are $30 per night.* From 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM, boaters are not allowed on the island without a permit to camp on one of the island's 9 campsites. The California State Park Annual Day-Use Pass cannot be used for overnight mooring.

Testimonials

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.

  • Esther C

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.
