UPDATE: Dates are now posted for boat tours through May 2023. Click here to purchase.

You have two routes to choose from: the Oakland tour (which also includes brief swings through Berkeley and Yerba Buena Island) or the Richmond tour. Both of the family-friendly trips last about three hours and feature stories about everything from booming shipyards and literary legends to whale-hunters and mysterious shipwrecks. All tours begin and end at the Emeryville Marina.

If you want to know a bit more about the tours, here’s an essay that I wrote about them and here are links to some recent media coverage:

Alta Journal: A Historical Trip around the Bay

KQED: Hitting the road and building a Northern California Bucket List

Diablo Magazine: Keeping History Alive with Liam O’Donoghue

You never know what you’ll see out on the Bay…

As always, you can bring your own drinks/snacks and warm clothing is recommended! See you out there. -Liam
