PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 I am limiting the number of guests to allow for maximum social distancing. Please contact me for larger single parties up to six guests. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome aboard my Downeaster 38, "Fred B. Wood"! Designed by renowned naval architect, Henry Morschlad, this Downeaster is in exceptionally good condition. Downeaster's are known as being stout and seaworthy bluewater cruisers. They can be found all over the globe. This experience is available for up to six guests! (Please note that I recently upgraded to a larger Downeaster 38 from an Ericson 27 which is shown in some of the photos!)

Your three-hour adventure starts at Jack London Square. The route will depend on wind conditions; however, our goal is to cross the bay to see the marvelous sites of South Beach Harbor (home of the SF Giants), the financial district, the bay bridge, and then Treasure Island. During the tour, you'll see amazing wildlife; including, flocks of pelicans, sea lions, and the occasional dolphin!

This is an active experience! I will review the basics of sailing (wind angle, general terms for operating the vessel, and rules of the road). You will take a turn at the helm (wheel), manage the sheets that control the sails, and raise and lower the sails. Naturally, you are also welcome to just sit back and enjoy the amazing views.

I am a USCG Licensed Captain. I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for six years and have been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the microclimates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests!

Destinations

We'll depart from historic Jack London Square and (depending on wind conditions) begin our sail in the Oakland Estuary. We'll see the ramps where the Liberty Ships were built by Kaiser shipyards in WW II. As we head west we'll pass by the houseboats of Alameda. We'll then head west and with the wind on our beam cross the bay to see South Beach Harbor, the Bay Bridge, and Treasure Island before running downwind back to Jack London Square.

Wow - what an awesome sail with David. Went as a perfect date/birthday experience with my girlfriend, who’s first time sailing since a kid. The tour starts out with an introduction lesson on sailing mechanics, continues through the Oakland bay with Massive container ships, out to the calm waters of Oracle park and back! 10/10 would recommend!

We had an excellent time! Capt’n Dave provided great food, a safe and easy experience, and was a wonderful guide around the bay. He had great insight about sailing, the bay, and we felt super relaxed aboard his boat :) It was easy to find him and he welcomed any level of participation in terms of sailing, steering the boat, etc. 10/10

David's sailing experience was wonderful! A great way to see San Francisco. David was a wonderful and friendly host, the boat was really nice and comfortable, and there were even snacks! We will definitely do this again.

David is a gem of a person! My wife and I had the best time sailing with him and learning about the boat. I have always loved sailing and this was my wife’s first time so it was the opportunity to get her hooked on sailing and David made it happen! Sailing back she said she wished we could spend the whole night out sailing. David had an eye to safety and comfort. He surprised us with cookies and Appetizers. Great value I would sail with him again!

I had asked David to give a surprise birthday message for a friend and he was so happy to help! He did an amazing job accommodating our group and was so knowledgeable about the area.

This was an amazing experience!!!!!! Most perfect conditions and David treated us so well! He taught as well as gave us space and let us enjoy the AMAZING views the SF has to offer. Truly a great find if you book with him. My girlfriend and I agreed that we should try to do this whenever possible in a new city and we’ll be hard-pressed to find a host as good as David, I’m sure of it!
