The schooner is a beautifully maintained 80’ classic, gaff-rigged sailboat available for private sails on the San Francisco Bay and the magnificent California Coast. Freda B is a United States Coast Guard certified coastal schooner, upright and comfortable, for up to 49 guests. Sail the SF Bay with us! It’s the perfect way to enjoy our famous vista from the most spectacular vantage. Local landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Mount Tamalpais, the Sausalito Waterfront and houseboats, Alcatraz Island, Chrissy Field and the Presidio, Fort Mason, Fisherman’s Wharf, Aquatic Park, Coit Tower, the San Francisco skyline and the Bay Bridge are seen from their best angle. Marine mammals, birds and other aquatic life are often an unpredictable, but welcome addition to our Bay tours as well. The schooner Freda B is immaculately maintained and offers definitive charms unavailable anywhere else on the Bay.
We distinguish ourselves with:
People – An experienced, resident, professional Captain and Crew are always at hand.
Gourmet Fare – Local, organic and customized catering options are one of our signature elements.
Media – We offer 2 flat Screen TVs for Giants Games, plus an iPod/iPhone compatible stereo system throughout the entire yacht
All our events are completely customized. Within a 3-hour charter we are able to offer nautical instruction (navigation, helm time, etc), local history, Bay Area ecology or just a fun and relaxing cruise in which your group just mingles and enjoys the cruise.
Additionally, each float plan, while dependent on day-of marine conditions, generally allows for new and unique views of popular landmarks like Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Chrissy Field, Fort Mason, Fisherman’s Wharf, Coit Tower, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais.
