SeaValor.org and s/v VALOR welcomes anyone experiencing PTSD for a four hour sail around the San Francisco Bay. We will depart Emeryville marina at 1200 hours (12pm), pass the historic Berkeley Pier, and head towards Angel Island. We will dock at Angel island and spend approximately 1 hour there. People are encouraged to hike up the hill to check out the breathtaking views.
After departing Angel Island, we will head west towards the Golden Gate Bridge.
Conditions permitting, we will sail underneath the Golden Gate bridge and towards Point Bonita Lighthouse.
We have seen whales, sea lions, seals, and dolphins out there, so keep your eyes open.After we reach the lighthouse, we will turn around and sail back under the Golden Gate bridge.
We will pass, Fort Point, Crissy Field, the Palace of the Fine Arts, and Ghiradelli Square, before reaching Alcatraz Island
Once at Alcatraz, we will sail as close as safely possible so guests can see the former military installations, prison, and wildlife., then we will head back towards San Francisco where we will sail next to the US Submarine Pampanito .
We will then continue along Fishermans Wharf, Pier 39, The Embarcadaro, and the San Francisco Ferry Building. We will then head east and go underneath the western span of the Bay Bridge, around Yerba Buena Island, and underneath the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge where we will look for the elusive bridge troll statue.
From there we will head through the moored barge field, past Treasure Island, and back to the marina.
COST: Free to Veterans, Firefighters, Nurses, and anyone with PTSD.
