Imagine sailing underneath the Golden Gate Bridge while the sun is setting on the Pacific Ocean. Celebrate your special event under the romance of sailing. Please note, we cannot take more than six passengers. This is a Coast Guard regulation and there can be no exceptions. Each child counts as one passenger. Every person must be vaccinated and have a proof of vaccination. Private charters are only available from 10-12pm, 12:30-2:30pm, 3-5pm And 5:30-7:30pm. For a longer excursion you may book multiple time slots. Private sailboat cruises are a great way to celebrate your special event. Sailing in the San Francisco bay area with Captain John and the Temptation can make any event especially memorable. Please remember—if you have a special event, we recommend you book the boat well in advance. Try the morning sail if you like nice calm water. You’ll get to enjoy the nature, see lots of birds, sea lions, maybe even dolphins. Bring your breakfast and have brunch on the boat. This is great if you're bringing children sailing with you. Afternoon sails are wonderful if you want to experience the boat under the full effect of the wind. It could be blowing up to 25 knots in the Bay. When we approach the lee side of Angel Island, the wind is minimal, and the temperature is 20 degrees warmer. This is great for cocktail parties or relaxing in the sun while you’re lunching. In late afternoon and evening sailing, the wind diminishes. We’ll sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy a spectacular sunset. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What food and drink can I bring? Bring anything you want to eat or drink (please no chips, bananas, glassware, platters or ice chests no red wine). Wine, bottled beer and champagne are fine to bring (no hard alcohol). Remember to bring water for yourselves. Bring food that is easy to eat and not messy (for example if you're bringing bread or cheese, have it precut). Can I bring children? Yes. You know your child better than anyone. But rule of thumb, children ages 3 and younger usually have a tough time on the boat. Contact me for further discussion. Can I bring my dog? While dogs are great and we love them, they are not permitted on the boat. What else should I bring? Be sure to bring your sunglasses, sunblock and a hat or baseball cap. A cord around your neck will keep sunglasses and hat from falling overboard. Remember to charge your phone and have enough memory on it.

Have you ever wanted to go sailing in the San Francisco Bay area but didn’t know anyone with a boat? Come sail with me, Captain John. Let me share my passion for sailing with you. I’m a U.S. certified sailing instructor and licensed by the U.S Coast Guard and fully insured. The boat was purchased in 2006 brand new. She is a modern, luxury 37-foot sailing yacht. I have lived here for over 45 years and can be your tour guide on the water. Just sit back, relax and enjoy a great day of sailing the SF bay with your friends and family. Sailing aboard my boat, Temptation, is a great economical way to spend a memorable day on the beautiful San Francisco Bay. It’s so much fun!
