Weather conditions often vary widely—and sometimes wildly—from place to place, and hour to hour, in the San Francisco Bay Area and adjacent waters. The Bay Area is a land of micro-climates. It can easily be 75 degrees Fahrenheit and sunny in one area of San Francisco, while it is foggy and mid-fifties a few hills to the west, and over 100 degrees 10 miles inland. Weather on the water is even more varied, and it can all change in a matter of minutes. Consequently, we pay close attention to local and marine reports and forecasts, as it is important to us to give you the best experience in a safe and fun environment.


Don't forget to call us after 7pm the evening before your scheduled departure for a trip update.
