About
The Schooner Freda B sails out of historic downtown Sausalito, CA. This beautiful 80-foot schooner hosts a myriad of public sails; local history, ecological, sunset, and city lights sails, to name just a few. The Schooner Freda B offers a local beer and wine bar. We are also well regarded for epicurean private sails, like our lobster feed, wine club tastings, and corporate team building on the magnificent San Francisco Bay.

This was our second excursion on the Freda B and it was excellent, as expected. The first trip was an afternoon 4th of July sail (2019), and we had a great time. This year, we took the 4th of July evening trip, which departed at 7pm and returned around 10:30pm. Captain Paul and his crew are wonderful to cruise with, always professional, good natured and Paul has excellent knowledge of the history of Sausalito bay.

I highly recommend booking a trip on the Freda B for a great experience and be sure to take plenty of photos, the views are really amazing.

Also, don't underestimate how cold and windy it can get out on the water (especially after the sun sets) and bring warm layers and a coat, it's better to be prepared and not need the extra coat than be miserable and ruin a good time ;)

Happy sailing!

My husband and I were in San Francisco for our anniversary. I did some research on other sailboats in the area. FredaB had a Harvest Moon Sunset Sail on their website so I decided to book it. I'm so happy I did. It was perfect!!! The captain and crew were all great! If we are ever in the area again, we will sail again with FredaB!

We had a wonderful time sailing on the Freda B! The crew and captain were friendly and attentive. We had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the sail. When the wind picked up they gave us blankets and we got a hot cocoa from the bar. It was a really special experience with great views- we saw the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate, the Bay Bridge, Angel Island, and Alacatraz. There were families and couples on board celebrating engagements, anniversaries, and birthdays. The crew answered questions about what we were seeing if we had them, but it wasn’t a like a sightseeing tour where you’re bombarded with facts over a loud speaker. We would absolutely do this again!

The boat and crew were great..however, we left the dock over 30 mins late waiting on six "No Shows". Thus, we saw NO sunset and NO sail under the Golden Gate Bridge... the whole reason for booking... very disappointing! There is a reason it says to be at the dock at 7:00 and sailing at 7:30!!! We understand situations arise, but schedule should be kept so not to disappoint the other 30+ people on the boat.

My son and I just got home from a great evening on the Schooner Freda B. Love the ship and how it is meticulously maintained. Love the crew and staff for their friendliness. Love the goodies (sweets, fruit, cheese, nuts, etc). Highly recommend this Friday night Sunset Sail to locals and visitors alike.

I have taken multiple cruises on the Freda B schooner and always have a great time! The crew is wonderful, friendly and entertaining. The SF Bay is a beautiful location to enjoy the cruises.

Cant say enough Great things about our experience on the Freda B. Gorgeous ship and Amazing Crew! This is a must do when visiting San Fran. Views and photos you cant get anywhere else! You can stretch out and relax and enjoy the ride or put your hands to work and help the crew! I helped the crew and my wife was content to watch and hold a wine glass! This was a surprise for our anniversary and we had a blast and met some great people! Cant wait to come back aboard the Freda B!

The whole family had a wonderful 3 Herring Run trip today-- we enjoyed every minute. Of course, the glorious January "Summer" weather helped but the boat and crew, notably Paul made this a truly perfect and memorable experience. Strongly recommended.
