See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Discover the wonders of one of the world’s great bodies of water — San Francisco Bay — from the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge to Angel Island, from Jack London Square to the Embarcadero. Board a comfortable 50-foot custom vessel, refitted for educational voyages with large windows for panoramic viewing and a sound system throughout, skippered by our knowledgeable captain/instructor, a biologist by training and an historian by interest.


• Gain a unique perspective on San Francisco Bay’s cultural and natural history from aboard a comfortable, 50-foot custom vessel.
• Discover Angel Island, the Ellis Island of the West, site of the U.S. Immigration Station that processed a million people and now a lovely state park.
• Learn about San Francisco’s waterfront, historic lighthouses, Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park, Treasure Island, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands.

Activity Notes
