Price shown is for a group and not per person and includes a steward. Maximum group size is 6.

Departing Jack London Square, we cruise up the bustling Port of Oakland shipping channel past mammoth cargo ships and towering loading cranes. Exiting the channel, we pass under the Bay bridge to the shoreline of downtown San Francisco. Wave at the land lubing tourists as we leisurely make our way up the SF shore past Pier 39 and other historic landmarks. Stopping briefly to see the submarine "Pampanito" we head out to the heart of San Francisco Bay. Take in breathtaking views of San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, East bay, North bay, San Rafael Richmond Bridge, Berkeley and Angel Island.

After circling Alcatraz we cruise to Treasure Island and past beautiful Clipper Cove where the Pan American Clippers used to start their journey across the Pacific. Here you can take in the awesome sight of the Bay bridge as your captain pilots you back to Jack London Square.

During the cruise the captain may give you the chance to take the helm and drive the boat. Or you may choose to just sit back and enjoy witnessing the abundance of wildlife including seals, sea lions, multiple species of birds and the occasional harbor porpoise. It's the perfect way to unwind and will be an experience you'll never forget.

Hi I’m Neil, Westerly’s owner and chief steward. I love hospitality and being on the water. I have been trained by a US Coast Guard captain and continue to take lessons to keep my skills up to date and sharp. I love classic yachts and the way that they feel and cruise on the water.

Your captain on the cruise is Arlan Stagg, a licensed United States Coast Guard captain with 25 years of experience on the San Francisco Bay. Your solo steward is Brett.

There's no better feeling than being on a classic wooden yacht which is why I purchased Westerly, a mint 1965 mahogany and teak 50' Chris Craft Constellation.

Come aboard and experience that classic cruising lifestyle reminiscent of bygone days when names like Jerry Lewis, the Kennedys, Dean Martin, Katherine Hepburn, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley cruised in their Chris Craft yachts.

Her skal du være

Aboard "Westerly" a classic 50' 1965 Chris Craft Constellation motor yacht. She's moored at Jack London Square marina - a destination on its own with lots of shops, restaurants and cafes. Aboard Westerly we'll create a memorable adventure by seeing the San Francisco area from a perspective few experience: the bay itself. No one forgets the scale of the Bay bridge as we pass under it or the first time dolphins swim along side us.

I had been looking for a luxe, private yacht charter and wasn’t having much luck. I wanted something intimate but large enough to give everyone space. I didn’t want to charter a huge yacht as I had only a small party and most of the smaller boats just didn’t feel special. The Westerly turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. It's a classic wood yacht, beautifully appointed and with enough room to host your family and friends comfortably. Upon arriving at the marina the captain greeted us at the gate and escorted us to the yacht. Upon boarding we were surprised to learn that a part of the package is a private steward. Ours greeted us with a glass of champagne and he had laid out a cheese platter for us. It felt like first class service on an airline. We then were given a tour of the yacht and the captain explained the safety features. I was surprised to see the lower level was pretty spacious with a kitchen, living room, dining area and lots of windows. That living room would later come in handy when we were returning that evening after the sun went down and things got chilly above. there was a bathroom and what looked like a bedroom up front. we were told the owners cabin was at the back of the boat and it’s door was closed so i didn’t peak in. Once the safety instructions were done the crew cast us off and we were on our way! We cruised up the shipping channel past all the huge container ships and cranes. I never realized how big those ships are until I was at water level right beside them. Our passage was pretty uneventful but we were told that the channel can get pretty busy with all the cargo ships going in and out. The trip out of the channel takes about 30 minutes and then you’re out in the SF bay and heading toward San Francisco. We passed under the Bay bridge and again I was in awe at the scale. I had never seen it from below and the sight was awesome. Looking straight up and seeing that huge bridge pass above. When we reached the San Francisco coast the captain slowed us down and the steward set up our table on the rear deck for dinner service. Dinner service was an extra charge and to be honest expensive but I would do it again in a heartbeat.. it was an unforgettable experience. The whole experience was like being transported back in time to a bygone era. Everything from the plates and silverware to the crystal wine glasses and the private service was just so well thought out. No restaurant can give you the same experience. The food was first class and delicious and the views as we slowly cruised up the coastline at sunset were just phenomenal. Breathtaking views of San Francisco and the entire bay. After dinner we cruised back to Jack London via Alcatraz and Treasure Island. The temperature was cooling down a bit so some some of us retired down below to the living room (or Salon as we were told 😝). That was quite a comfortable space with nice furniture and big windows all around so that we could continue to enjoy the lights of the bay and still keep warm! The steward even served us coffee. what service! In closing I just want to say that isn’t your typical cruise where you buy a seat along with strangers. This is a private charter and you do feel like you are the owners of this classic yacht going out on an evening cruise and attended to by your private staff. It’s a unique and truly memorable experience and one I won’t soon forget. Thank you to Captain Arlan and our steward Brett for taking so good care of us!
