Welcome aboard a little ship, a 40 Ft Spindrift Trawler. "Alameda Star" is a very comfortable twin diesel trawler that is comfortable, roomy, and leisurely--about 10kts. Up to six guests can take a sunset cruise with an experienced USCG Licensed Captain exploring the wonders of San Francisco Bay. We'll depart at 5:00 pm from Jack London Square in Oakland. We'll first explore Oakland's Inner Harbor and cruise down to Coast Guard Island. We'll then head west along Alameda's coastline and see the Liberty Ship ramps and Alameda Houseboats. As we head west we'll enter the shipping channel before crossing the bay heading towards South Beach Harbor. The harbor is also at the foot of AT&T Stadium, home of the SF Giants. We'll tour through South Beach Harbor which offers spectacular views of downtown before heading under the Bay Bridge towards the Ferry Building. Heading back across the bay we'll see sea lions on Treasure Island while the sun sets to the west. Please note that if your party is 3 or more you may want to reserve all available seats so that you can enjoy to the experience exclusively. Daily charters are also available. Please feel free to send me an inquiry.
I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for four years and have been been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides history, beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the micro climates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!
