We were thinking to watch the sunset on this sailing trip but it was too foggy. I guess it’s normal the bay gets foggy toward the evening. Even though we didn’t see the sunset, but we did get to sail under the new and beautiful I-80 bridge and seeing the city of SF light up at night from the water. The purpose was to make it memorable for our special guesses and Captain Jim and Robert made sure it happened. I would totally do it again in a heart beat!
The trip went great. Jim took great care of us and the boat was superb to sail on. We toured the bay for a few hours catching great evening views of the bay along with the night time views of the golden gate and bay bridges. Can't wait to do this again!
