We are located at 310 Harbor drive in Sausalito in Clipper Yacht Harbor, slip 106, and there is plenty of free parking. At the end of Harbor Dr there is a railroad crossing type of gate at the entrance to the “main” parking lot. This gate is usually closed early in the morning but often you can follow someone through or someone might open it for you… IF you use this lot please park in spots to the left as spots to the right must be left open for patrons of “Fish.” Restaurant later in the day.
There is however, ANOTHER LOT !! Many seem to miss it but it is 100 feet before the gate - to the right. This is the preferred lot to park in but please do not park in any spot marked “reserved.” On busy days this smaller lot can get full, and if you can’t get into the big, “main” lot, call us at (415)548-0150 and we can always come open the main lot gate for you. Our dock is basically straight across from that "RR crossing" type gate - next to the boat launch ramp - by a “Clipper Yacht Harbor” sign. We are 3/4 of the way down that dock on the left "Salty Lady" - please buy your tickets in advance.
Please check the “book online” section of this website for currently scheduled trips and pricing.
On most trips gear and tackle is provided and included at no charge. Rental rods are available for $20. We are stocked up on all appropriate gear and tackle, but you’re welcome to bring your own as well.
It is customary to tip your deckhand(s). Obviously not required by definition - but much like a waiter in a restaurant - deckhands work very hard for a very modest wage. 10-20 percent is a standard tip in a restaurant where your server waits on you for perhaps 5 minutes. Your deckhand will be there to help and serve you for 8-10 hours. If you think he did a good job… tip him well. If not, please let me know !!! We have a great crew on the Salty Lady...
Fishing licenses are required for all anglers age 16 and up. Kids 15 years old & younger do not need a Ca. fishing license.
Due to current regulations we cannot sell fishing licenses on board. They can be purchased at your local sporting goods store or online at the Ca Dept of Fish and Wildlife website.
Coffee and tea are provided and we do have a microwave but bring your own lunch and cold drinks. Beer & wine is permitted, but hard alcohol is not. Becoming inebriated is discouraged and not a great idea on any boat !!!
Dress appropriately… regardless of how hot it may be on land it can often be very cold on the water. It might be warm… but don’t count on it. Layers !!!
Overall, seasickness is very rare… it happens to a very small percentage of people… but if it happens to you it can make for a very long day. Over the counter motion sickness medications do NOT work if you wait until you start feeling the symptoms !! They DO work well if you take one the night before and one in the morning before you leave to come down to the boat. Check with your health care provider about the Scopolamine patch… probably the most effective preventative measure I have seen in my experience !!
Our trips leave PROMPTLY at our scheduled departure time, so please be on the boat at least 1/2 hour early !!!
