How much does a Skippered Sail cost?
Whether you are celebrating a graduation, birthday, or anniversary, taking the helm and sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge enhances the occasion. With an experienced and licensed US Coast Guard Captain guiding your group, you can participate as much or as little as you want. We will help you customize the day and ensure you and your guests have a truly unique adventure while sailing in San Francisco.
Below is a list of our Skippered Sailing packages. All sails begin and end at our charter base in Sausalito. Remote pickup and drop off can be arranged at various locations around the San Francisco Bay Area. Skippered Cruises and private sailing lessons have a three-hour minimum and can be customized to your needs. Learn more about our boats and fleet levels on Our Charter Fleet page.
