Welcome to an authentically Re-created Schooner in San Francisco bay
Book a classic tall ship on San Francisco Bay. The beautiful two-masted sailing schooner “Gas Light” under sail on San Francisco Bay, with the sails billowing overhead, the City, Angel Island and the Golden Gate Bridge framing the horizons, will be an unforgettable day’s outing on the water! . This is a modern replica of a traditional scow schooner that once plied the waters of California over 140 years ago. She is a jewel on the Bay and unique with her ability to take guests on a nostalgic adventure with modern safety and conveniences. Schooners were the working boats of yesteryear, a favorite among pirates for their speed and agility, once beautifully depicted by the artist Fitz Hugh Lane*. This fine ship is capable of entertaining up to 49 guests. Perfect for a wide variety of outings, for example, corporate team building, birthday/anniversary celebrations, Ash Scattering.
Your crew and master will design a custom outing for your group. Anything from raising and working the sails to simply relaxing with your group in the best way possible… away from the stresses of land-based concerns. Food and beverages must be bought from the boat. Please arrange that directly with the boat after you book. Their menus here:
The boat has wide, comfortable and stable decks to enjoy the bay breezes. Below decks, the open seating and huge center table can accommodate your entire group to enjoy fine foods or tasty beverages from our full bar. Our menus are flexible and can be tailored to your group’s desires. With her “tall ship” rigging, “Gas Light” has the flavor of a working vessel, giving the opportunities for guests to have a unique hands-on experience, unlike the standard motor yachts that cannot go under sail.
Step aboard “Gas Light” for 3, 4, 5 hours or more and break away from the traditional charter yacht experience. We offer so much more with our sailing adventures. Give back to your friends, co-workers or family by treating them to a day “at work” they will cherish for a long time… under full sail on San Francisco Bay.
Consider the possibilities…
