Weddings at sea, commitment ceremonies and elopements aboard the Freda B are some of our most elegant events. Couples select Freda B for vow renewals, receptions and rehearsal dinners to the delight of their guests. We are experienced and passionate about hosting the perfect nautical wedding.
If you are seeking a classic yet affordable option to tie the knot, please let us introduce the Schooner Freda B.
One of the most stunning aspects of getting married on the San Francisco Bay is the ever-changing views from your venue. Whether dockside or tucked into a protected cove on the SF Bay, wedding photos will have a spectacular backdrop. Enjoy new and unique views of the SF Bay’s famous landmarks as you celebrate with friends and family.
Our experienced staff hand-selects premier vendors to coordinate a dream sail for your big day. We offer well-trained, professional crew and full-service, hospitality staff. Couples have the option of using one of our licensed captains to marry (starting at $400) or to provide their own officiant for the ceremony.

“We had a wonderful time with you, and I think that everything – route, champagne, foods, sail – everything, went wonderfully. Still strikes me that at almost 72, I’m running around getting married… but who said age has any impact on things! Please pass my thanks to Paul. Carol and I thought he (and you) did a superb job.”
-Greg and Carol
“Thank you and everyone so much! It was a wonderful day. My friends and family had a great time. Andy and I have wonderful memories of our wedding. Everyone did an excellent job!”
