Hokahey is a Coast Guard Auxiliary safety inspected boat with a large saloon, full galley, twin motors
This boat is an excellent platform to experience one of the most gorgeous bays in the world.
Options include: circumnavigating Alcatraz Island; sailing along the city front; under the Golden Gate Bridge; stopping at Angel Island; or venturing out onto the Pacific Ocean.
Hokahey can also be used for celebrations of life, weddings, ash scatterings, work retreats, baseball games at AT&T Park, and much more.
The large saloon provides is comfortable area in which to stay warm and dry. Being a catamaran, the boat doesn't heel over on its side. For those who enjoy a bit more adventure , there are places to sit up on deck and experience the wind and spray in your hair.
It is likely we will see seals and sea lions. Perhaps harbor porpoise as well. And for longer trips, whales are not uncommon - along with a host of birds.
Captain Jan loves to teach sailing - and show passengers some of 'the ropes' and also offer passengers a turn at the helm.
Our youngest passenger was 6 weeks old and our eldest (thus far) was 94 years young.
For those who prefer a land based component, we can stop at Angel Island where you can hike, eat, rent a bike or take a tram tour of this historic "Ellis Island of the West" with its incredible views of the bay and surrounding cities and towns.
