Sausalito is a city in southern Marin at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge across the straight from San Francisco. It’s known for its Richardson Bay houseboat enclaves, built by artist squatters after WWII. SF Bay Adventures & Schooner Freda B as well as Call of the Sea's Brigantine Matthew Turner also departs from Sausalito for an exciting sail day on the bay!
For visitor information and maps on the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Headlands stop by the Marin Headlands Visitor Center at Fort Barry in Sausalito. And to feel like you are walking on water, don't forget to check out Point Bonita Lighthouse, which has an intesting history and is still active today.
