Places to Sail on San Francisco Bay
Places to Eat
- Angel Island, Ayala Cove
Ayala Cove on Angel
Island is the most protected anchorage in the entire central bay
area. There's no real anchorage here, because the small cove has
been filled with docks and moorings. You can use the docks only during
the day ($15 fee for all or any part of the day), but you can stay
on a mooring overnight ($30 per night).
- China Camp
- Paradise Cove
Paradise Cove is a long, pretty anchorage. It is the first cove along
the east side of the Tiburon peninsula, as you head north around the
corner from Tiburon. There's a beach you can visit by dinghy. It can
be rolly, though it usually calms down after dark making it comfortable
overnight -- except for the occasional large wakes from passing ships.
- Clipper Cove
A favorite anchorage of many bay sailors because of its central location and good protection. It is open to the east but gets relatively few wakes and is protected in most weather.
- Belvedere Cove
Located between Belvedere and Tiburon, Belvedere cove makes a fine lunch stop and is sometimes used overnight.
Historical sites in and around the bay
What is Winehaven? the Ford Plant? Southhampton Shoal? Our instructor Lance Batten has put together a very cool interactive webpage that shows you these locations on the Bay and more.
