Skippered Charters - Pricing

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.

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.

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.
