by Rich Goldman

Employee team building events are a fun and exciting way to engage employees and make them feel like the hard work and dedication they put into their jobs is appreciated. Off-site team building events offer employees the opportunity to let their hair down, bond with their co-workers and enjoy a shared experience that can translate into new ideas being cultivated and a fresh new outlook for their jobs. If you have a business in San Francisco and are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience to share with your team, come aboard GAS LIGHT and let us help you host an event the office will be buzzing about for weeks to come.

GAS LIGHT is a luxury sailing vessel that was replicated from the original 1874 schooner that transported goods up and down San Francisco Bay centuries ago. It features many of the comforts of a modern yacht, while paying homage to the ornate details of a historic boat. GAS LIGHT can accommodate up to 48 guests, so it is the ideal event space for a small to medium size business team. The captain and crew of GAS LIGHT are all safety and first aid trained to ensure you have a safe sailing experience.  

A Shared Experience

At Bay Lights Charters, we will work our hardest to make sure your team has an exceptional time while sailing the San Francisco Bay. Our captain and crew will cruise around some of the most iconic sites of the area including Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco city front, Treasure Island, and more, so your team can enjoy breathtaking views and pose for a few spectacular group pictures. You will learn about native wildlife of the area and the important role the San Francisco Bay and scow schooners like GAS LIGHT have played with commerce over the years.

Fun Morale Booster

A luxury tour aboard GAS LIGHT is the perfect way to boost morale among your team. Your employees can get to know one another while having light discussions and enjoying fine cocktails amid award winning scenery. Employees can come up with creative visions for the future away from the traditional office setting and enjoy each other's company.  

Tours Offered

We offer several different sailing tours to suit your needs. Each tour is approximately two to three hours long, which is plenty of time to captivate your audience with an inspiring presentation, give thanks for the hard work that your employees do, treat them to drinks, snacks, and meals, and allow them to check out the breathtaking sights around San Francisco Bay. You can reserve a daytime tour or a relaxing evening excursion that is narrated by an expert guide who will share stories and the fascinating history of this iconic waterway.


Not only does GAS LIGHT have a state-of-the-art surround sound system, but your guests will also get to enjoy plenty of open deck seating, a posh below deck cabin with a fully stocked bar, and an experience customized to the team. Our crew can provide a variety of snacks like meat, cheese, and fruit platters as well as Californian, Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asian inspired entrees or sandwiches. You can also order ahead from some of the fine restaurants around the bay and have your event catered.

Whether you are trying to create the perfect backdrop for your company's next great idea or would just like to say "thank you" for a job well done, a team building event aboard the GAS LIGHT will have a lasting impact on your team.
