Looking for a staycation or weekend getaway?

Leaving from Berkeley we have the option to explore numerous locations around the greater Bay Area. Angel Island is our first pick due to the numerous hiking trails and historic sites. Then there is Clipper Cove tucked between Treasure and Yerba Buena Islands with breathtaking views of the San Francisco city front and a budding gastro block. Fancy a night in San Francisco? We can anchor Esprit in historic Aquatic Park and explore the famous Fisherman's Wharf and Embarcadero. Last but not least, one of our personal favorites is Sausalito. With only minor tidal considerations, the itinerary is yours to explore.

Bay Cruisin’

Day 1

You’ll meet us dockside after 4pm and we’ll spend the first hour going over Esprit and getting to know the safety procedures and general rules for yacht life. The first night will include a short sail and we’ll stay at either Angel Island or Clipper Cove with dinner aboard.

Day 2

After a leisurely, unforgettable breakfast and exploring ashore, we’ll go sailing with the only goal of having a wonderful time exploring the infamous San Francisco Bay. Lunch and dinner will be aboard. We’ll spend the night in a different anchorage, one that suits your interests.

Day 3

Some guests like the third day aboard to be about relaxing and staying put. That’s fine with us. Fancy a swim, or a paddle around the anchorage? Want to sit back with a book or hang in the hammock? Or Perhaps you’d like to sail into the North Bay for a visit to China Camp State Park. Whatever you decide, we’ll oblige. Breakfast and lunch, or brunch, will be aboard. We’ll return to Berkeley around 5pm.

Design your own adventure, live the sailing mentality.
