Birthday parties are what the San Francisco Sailing Company does best!

We have built our business on knowing how to party, and it is best shown on birthdays. Even our crew, who sail every day, reserve our boats for their own birthday parties.



Birthdays are by far the most popular reason for chartering one of our boats. The reason is simple, boat parties are the best parties. Just hop on board and we take care of you. Drinks are served to your seat, the stereo is at your control, The City and beautiful San Francisco Bay surround you as your party is gliding through the most awesome sights in the world.

We cater to all age groups, whether it's the 90th birthday or the 1st we provide a party that will be remembered for a lifetime. Seeing the San Francisco Bay from a boat is a wonderful unique experience. Celebrating your birthday on your own private sailing yacht on the San Francisco Bay is out of this world!

When you charter a boat from the San Francisco Sailing Company it's your boat and your party and we will provide whatever type of experience your want. A mature cruise to Sausalito with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres is a grand way to celebrate a person's life. Quietly sliding past historic monuments and breathtaking views from the comfort our sailing yachts is the height of Bay Area living.

We also know how to crank up the tunes and start a real San Francisco style party. Since it's your party it can get as wild as you like. Our captain and crew will make sure everyone is safe, but there are few rules regarding conduct on the boat. As long as you are not endangering yourself or other passengers you can pretty much do anything you like. As we said, it's your boat and your party.

A 3 hour party is the most popular amount of sailing time for our customers. Many people chose longer sails if they are avid sailors or partiers. If you want to stop at some of the many dockside bars in the Bay or explore Angel Island half or full day charters are the best values. For the budget minded we do have a 2 hour minimum for all charters and a quick 2 hour spin around the bay is a low commitment for busy San Franciscans.

Our largest yacht the Privateer is truly a party boat. She features a full bar, I-pod hook for the stereo, and seating for 28. Originally built for the drummer of the rock band Journey this boat has massive mojo. Sometimes the aft deck becomes a dance floor, sometimes it the smoking lounge. Whatever your tastes, the Privateer has enough class and charm for every occasion.

One of the best reasons for chartering with the San Francisco Sailing Company is our location. Pier 39 in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf is easy to find and accessible from anywhere. With North Beach neighborhood just a few blocks away the party doesn't have to end when you get off the boat. World class bars, restaurants, and clubs for all types means the fun can go on long after the sun has gone down.
