9 Milestone Events to Celebrate on San Francisco Bay

by Anna Harutyunyan

Life provides us with many reasons to celebrate. We can help you launch your private party onboard our schooner, GAS LIGHT, and create a memorable afternoon or evening shared with your closest friends or family, or your most valued professional associates.  

Bay Lights Charters provides a top-notch crew and Coast Guard inspected vessels so you and your guests can relax and experience the San Francisco Bay from its absolute best vantage point.

1. Get Down to Business Aboard a Luxury Sailing Yacht

Our charters provide your company with the optimal reward for your best clients or your sales team after a successful account. You might choose to let your VIPs explore the Bay with their own guests or invite them to join you and toast your latest business deal. There's no better way to "onboard" a new customer than aboard GAS LIGHT.

2. Cast Off the Cap and Gown

Graduation celebrations, whether your graduate has completed high school, their undergraduate degree or their Ph.D., are a wonderful excuse to get family and friends together for a San Francisco Bay cruise. Who knows? Perhaps a taste of luxury yachting will inspire your son or daughter to set their sights high as they launch their careers.

3. Make Her Swoon Aboard a Schooner

The waves aren't high enough on the Bay to sweep your beloved off her feet, but if you pull out all the stops and plan a proposal on a romantic sunset cruise, she'll be in your arms forever.

4. New Horizons for Your Engagement Party or Wedding Ceremony

Bring both your families together for an engagement party or intimate wedding ceremony on board GAS LIGHT. Treat your guests to champagne and hors d'oeuvres followed by fine dining at one of many bayside restaurants, or allow us to arrange a fully catered dining experience onboard.

5. Birthday Celebrations

Take the sting out of milestone birthdays by surprising your spouse, parent, or other cherished loved one with a sail on GAS LIGHT. Many of our guests of honor are themselves, "old salts" who appreciate the opportunity to relax and let our crew do the work, while they admire our beautifully crafted schooner and bask in the attention of their friends and family.

6. Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, and Quinceaneras

Traditional milestones in the lives of our youth should never go unnoticed. Conduct sacred Torah readings on the bow of GAS LIGHT or dance with your daughter on deck until your entire party reaches her reception on shore.

7. Life Celebration and Commitment to the Sea

As sailors say, there are peaks and troughs in life. If it was the wish of a loved one to have his or her ashes cast into the Pacific or San Francisco Bay, we can assist in providing a respectful and beautiful life celebration.

8. Make a Bold Appearance

Pick up your prom date for a seafaring dinner or sail from your beach ceremony to your waterfront reception on board the ultimate stretch limousine. Just be sure the ladies know to bring a scarf! It's one thing to use a dramatic entrance to blow away your date or new bride; it's entirely another for her hairdo to be destroyed.

9. Reignite Your Romance

Are you anticipating a landmark anniversary? Cuddle up on the deck of the Gas Light for an exclusive, romantic sunset sail around the San Francisco Bay's most romantic sights. Sausalito's answer to the French Riviera, the glow of the Golden Gate, or a trip through Raccoon Straight will get your blood running hot once again... regardless of how calm the Bay's waters might be.
