Out Sailing on scow Schooner ALMA

San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park


Sailing on Alma is a unique way to get out on the Bay. She is an extremely stable boat and even when the wind kicks up above 20 knots, like the day I was out, you feel safe and secure. Here is a short and silent video from a sail I went on in August, 2013. It’s silent because it was so windy the audio was all wind and flapping sail sounds. You can help raise the sails, or relax and take in the views. A park ranger will be on board to answer all your questions, the captain and crew are competent and friendly, and you can’t beat the fresh air!! --Ranger Christine
