Charter San Francisco Bay

San Francisco Bay is a shallow, productive estuary that drains water from approximately forty percent of California. Water from the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, and from the Sierra Nevada mountains passes through the Bay to the Pacific Ocean.  Bay Islands are: Alcatraz Island, Angel Island, Treasure Island, Yerba Buena Island, Alameda island and Red Rock. San Francisco is considered one of the greatest cities in the world for many things, including five-star dining, a happening theater scene. And, beyond the fifty-square-mile city, in the surrounding Bay Area, there’s so much more to explore, including Silicon Valley’s innovations, Marin’s Headlands, the vineyards of Napa Valley and Sonoma County, and Berkeley’s free spirit.


Just off the northeastern end of the Golden Gate Bridge is the picturesque little town of Sausalito, a slightly bohemian adjunct to San Francisco. With fewer than 8,000 residents, Sausalito feels rather like St. Tropez on the French Riviera (minus the beach).
Next to the pricey bayside restaurants, antiques shops, and galleries you'll see hamburger joints, ice-cream shops, and secondhand bookstores. Sausalito's main strip is Bridgeway, which runs along the water; on a clear day the views of San Francisco far across the bay are spectacular. After admiring the view, those in the know make a quick detour to Caledonia Street, 1 block inland; not only is it less congested, but it also has a better selection of cafes and shops. Since the town is all along the waterfront and only stretches a few blocks, it's best explored on foot and easy to find your way around. 

Across the Golden Gate Bridge, just minutes from San Francisco, lies the picturesque waterfront community of Sausalito, world renowned for its Mediterranean flair and breathtaking views. In addition to a wide selection of first-class restaurants with foods from around the world, Sausalito offers its signature hospitality at waterfront inns, Main Street hotels and a new 5-star resort. The city is also a world-class venue for every sort

of outdoor and nautical activity—whether it’s biking, hiking or boating,
Sausalito offers easy bay access and the most scenic backdrops imaginable. Sausalito also offers access to San Francisco, the dramatic North Coast, and wine country. Sausalito truly is the gateway to some of the most beautiful and sought-after destinations in the world.

Angel Island

located in San Francisco Bay, is accessible by private boat or public ferry from Tiburon and San Francisco. A five mile island perimeter road takes visitors past more than 100 historic military structures ranging in age from the Civil War to the Cold War as well as the site of a Marine Quarantine Station and a U.S. Immigration Station. Additional hiking trails cross the island and a spectacular 360 degree view of the entire Bay Area is available from the top of Mt. Livermore.

Angel Island is located in the central section of the San Francisco Bay, formed by the Richmond San Rafael Bridge to the north, the Golden Gate Bridge to the west, and the Oakland/Bay Bridge to the south, in Marin County, California. Although physically isolated by the Bay waters, the Island is actually part of a large, metropolitan area; large cities surround the Island in almost every direction. Angel Island is part of the Town of Tiburon, which is largely located approximately one mile to the northwest, across Raccoon Straight.

San Francisco is approximately four miles to the southwest, and Berkeley is approximately seven miles to the southeast. Access to the Island is by boat, either a public ferry that runs seasonally or the State Parks Ferry that runs three times per day.

Angel Island is located in the middle of San Francisco Bay, offering spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, Marin Headlands, and Mount Tamalpais. The Island was the main port of entry for most Asians arriving on the West Coast of the United States from 1907-1940. The operation of the immigration detention facilities, in compliance with the Chinese Exclusion Act and the discriminatory policies against Chinese immigrants, ended with the Station’s closure in 1940. During World War II, Japanese and German POWs were detained on the Island, which was also used as reentry point and processing facility for American soldiers returning from the Pacific. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Island was home to a Nike missile base. Angel Island became a State Park in 1961. Today, there are two parcels owned by the Coast Guard, but operated by State Parks.

The Immigration Station currently includes three remaining primary historic structures: the Powerhouse, Hospital Building, and Detention Barracks.
