Book Your Charter on the Schooner Gas Light

Welcome aboard the Schooner Gas Light! We look forward to working with you to customize your sailing experience and make it a truly memorable outing. Gas Light is US Coast Guard certified to accommodate up to 49 guests, however, for charters under sail we limit the number to 40 for safety and comfort.  For charters that require motoring only, we can welcome the maximum 49 passengers. 


2015 private charters will be scheduled on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from May though October.  Rates are $825/hour with a 3 hour minimum. This rate includes a licensed Captain and 2 deckhands. (A gratuity of +/- 10% is customary and would be greatly appreciated by our crew.)  Please call for a quote for Special Event rates, including Opening Day, Fleet Week, Fourth of July, etc..  

Charters are scheduled out of our home berth at Schoonmaker Point Marina in Sausalito.  Gas Light can also make arrangements to pick-up and drop-off guests in San Francisco at Gas House Cove, next to Fort Mason in the Marina District.  There is a $500 charge for this option.


Need food and beverages while you sail? We recommend a variety of excellent caterers and servers and allow you to self-cater your own event. Please let us know if you will need coolers with ice on deck.

There is an additional self-catering fee of $125 for those wishing to bring their own food and beverages.  This fee covers ice in our coolers, clean-up, recycling and trash disposal.  This fee is waived when a professional caterer is responsible for the food, beverage service and clean-up.


If there is mutual decision to cancel due to weather, the preferred option is to reschedule, otherwise all monies paid will be returned less a $100 administration fee. If the captain and management decide it is safe to sail and the charter party wants to cancel, the cancellation terms of the charter contract apply.
