Explore San Francisco by Foot, Cable Car, and Yacht for Four Days & Three Nights at the Fairmont San Francisco for Two, Including an America's Cup Yacht Experience (Land Only)

From the Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf to the Painted Ladies, sourdough bread to sensational restaurants, San Francisco is home to a little bit of everything. Whether this is your first visit or your tenth, the City by the Bay is full of adventures to be had, art to study, landmarks to visit, neighborhoods to stroll through, and so much more! Power and speed are the name of the game on board an International America's Cup Class yacht, on which you'll embark on a thrilling sail on the Bay!

From Golden Gate Park to the Painted Ladies, Nob Hill to Haight Ashbury, there is so much to see and do in the City by the Bay! Stop at Twin Peaks, the highest point in the city, which offers an unparalleled 360-degree view! See San Francisco sparkle at night, visit the Japanese Tea Gardens and other sights in Golden Gate Park! What was once a sleepy fishing village has become a dynamic and modern metropolis, so come and see what San Francisco has to offer! Boasting a world-renowned symphony, ballet and opera that just touch upon its vibrant arts scene, San Franciscans truly take pride in their cultural heritage. San Francisco also offers easy access to an array of wonderful destinations: the expansive vineyards of the wine country, the dramatic cliffs of Big Sur, and the majestic mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe.

USA 76 is the most hands on sailing experience available on the San Francisco Bay. You'll be actively involved in the duties of sailing the yacht, including taking the helm and working the sail trim controls, known as coffee grinders. Help with the 'hoist,' take your turn as a 'grinder' on the powerful sail trim controls, and be the skipper of your own America's Cup team as you take your turn at the helm of this high-speed yacht! Or you can simply sit back and relax for a smooth ride as the yacht cuts through the bay's waves.

Your trip for two includes:
• 4 days/3 nights accommodations at the Fairmont San Francisco
• Daily complimentary breakfast
• All room-related taxes
• Hands-on 2.5 hour day sailing experience aboard America's Cup Class yacht, USA 76
• Free concierge reservation service
