Located near the city of San Francisco, Oakland is a must for your next sailing trip! Both cities share the famous San Francisco Bay, home to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. However, even though they are neighbors, when it comes to climate, Oakland remains mild all year due to consistent sunshine and the bay breeze. Whereas San Francisco tends to fluctuate between extremes a lot more.
When in Oakland, be sure to visit the Jack London District, Oakland's waterfront neighborhood. Here you will find a mix of fantastic restaurants and bars, lively events, and of course stunning scenic views of the bay. You can also visit some marinas, perhaps the home base of your next yacht charter in Oakland!
From Oakland, there are many sailing opportunities to try. Visit Angel Island where you can dock the boat and then hike to the top for amazing views. Or sail under the Bay Bridge for a unique perspective and continue to Clipper Cove at Treasure Island. It has one of the best-protected anchorages in the area and from the shoreline, you might be able to spot sea lions in the water!
