Eco-Sail to the Marin Headlands - Sunday Morning 2019
This event is expired.
Set sail aboard the Schooner Freda B for an ecology-themed tour of the Marin Headlands!
This signature sail, boarding in Sausalito, will take you under the Golden Gate Bridge and all the way out to Point Bonita Lighthouse. This is a prime area for wildlife, since it's only viewable from the water, and we'll have a naturalist on-board to guide you through the whole experience. You'll learn about the diverse ecosystems of the San Francisco Bay, with frequent wildlife sightings, and then return in time for brunch at one of Sausalito's many delicious restaurants!
WILDLIFE: - Keep an eye out for life on and around the water.
More than 200 species of birds call the Bay Area Home. Possible sightings: Brown Pelican, Western Gull, Cormorants, Night Heron, Common Murres and Snowy Egret and more...
