About San Francisco, California

A hilly landscape, classic Victorian houses, and the perfect mild climate is the backdrop for you to explore the beautiful city of San Francisco. Since the city is on a peninsula and is surrounded by water on three sides, the Bay Area promises a lot of exciting opportunities for boating enthusiasts. Whether you have your boat or are hiring or chartering, San Francisco’s waters will never disappoint you.

The best time of year to visit San Francisco is during the autumn months of September and October. The peak summer months are beautiful but can be more expensive, and the winters in San Francisco are usually dreary with lots of rain and gray skies. 

San Francisco is easy to get to by flight to its international airport, by Greyhound bus or driving in on major highways.
