San Francisco Lighthouse Cruise
1 Day - Waiting List!
September 29, 2016
Take a three-hour cruise of San Francisco Bay, discovering several of its lighthouses. 
At the Berkeley Marina, board the M/V River Dolphin, a 57 ft. catamaran style vessel with both upper and lower deck seating. 
An informal lunch will be served onboard the boat. 

The development of America’s Pacific Coast began with San Francisco and the bay is home to more lighthouses than any other area along the West Coast. 

Please note: the tide conditions dictate how many of these lighthouses we will view.  With luck, we should be able to sail past Yerba Buena Island, near the Golden Gate, then back around Angel Island and Alcatraz to Berkeley.

Although we will not view all the bay’s lighthouses, they include:
  • Point Bonita, at the entrance of the Golden Gate (1855)
  •  Alcatraz Island Light House (1909)
  •  East Brothers Light House, now a bed & breakfast (1874)
  •  Fort Point Light House (1853)
  •  Lime Point Light House, near Sausalito (1883)
  • Oakland Harbor Light House, now a restaurant (1903)
  • Yerba Buena Island (Goat Island) Light House (1875)
  • The Carquinez Strait Light House, near Vallejo (1910)
  • Point Montara Light House, near San Mateo (1928
  • Point Blunt Light House, on Angel Island (1956)

The top deck is a delightful place to sit, but a warm windbreaker or jacket with a 
hood is recommended when the boat is cruising against the wind. Shoes must be 
soft-soled - no hiking boots. We recommend suntan lotion,
binoculars and a camera. 


There are stairs to the upper deck, but the aft deck boarding area is only one step up from the dock with two steps down to the main salon. Hand rails and grips are arranged around the boat for ease of movement.
