Cruising Alameda Island & Lunch

ID : 43129   
« back to classes page
Join us for a narrated boat tour about and around the Oakland Estuary and Alameda Island. We’ve all driven over the bridges from Oakland to Alameda, but how many have cruised under the Bay Bridge, entered the estuary, and continued down the east side of Alameda? This trip is truly a “back door view” of both Oakland and Alameda, and gives a good sense of the history as well as current usage of the estuary and Bay sides of this island (formerly the Alameda peninsula.)The peninsula was named Encinal (meaning oaks) by the original Spanish explorers, and we have four bridges opened for us as we cruise down the estuary before/during lunch. After passing through the last bridge, we enter San Francisco Bay and head towards San Francisco before starting our return journey home. There will be time to take a look at the City Front, Yerba Buena Island and its lighthouse, and more as we cruise back to Berkeley. Enjoy a delicious lunch onboard while taking in the scenery. You’ll have a choice of: Roast Beef with Havarti, Smoked Turkey with Pesto and Havarti, or Seafood Salad; all served on a croissant with Fruit, Caesar Salad, Non-alcoholic beverage, and a cookie. We will cruise from and return to the Berkeley Marina. This is a rain or shine trip and is dependent upon high tides.
