     This experience begins at Bluewater Yacht Harbor in Sausalito, where you will receive a full safety briefing and tour of the yacht. Departing the marina, we will cruise along the charming Sausalito foreshore and under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge for a once in a lifetime, better than the postcard photo. We will then make our way directly through the heart of the San Francisco Bay with breathtaking 360 degree views of the San Francisco, including the San Francisco city skyline, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Angel Island, Richmond San Rafael Bridge, Berkley, Oakland, Richmond, Ayala Cove and more.  Headed through Raccoon Strait, we will tour the Marin waterside with views of the opulent homes and brilliant vistas which dot the coastline of Belvedere and Tiburon.


Finally, we slow it down and drop anchor in Richardson Bay to allow you to take in all you have seen and relax within the privacy of your own private yacht to enjoy views and whatever additional snacks or libations you have brought aboard.  If you are chilly, I will fire up the heaters inside, or you can cuddle up under the personal Pendleton blankets. After your time soaking up the Bay, the captain will re-appear to chauffeur you safely back to the marina in Sausalito.
