As you journey north, take in the vibrant green hillsides of Marin County and the houseboat communities of Sausalito.

The crew was amazing and made the trip so much fun! Everyone was very personable offering drinks, coats, blankets, etc. Sailing on the bay has always been a dream of mine and words can not describe how happy I am with this tour.
