Take a fascinating adventure to the lesser-explored parts of the south San Francisco Bay. Check out South Bay sights one can only see from water, including breath-taking kayak excursions, and an abandoned World War I destroyer. This episode is a must-watch for history buffs.

Captain Ron and everyone at Spinnaker Sailing are experts at navigating the waterways of the southern part of the Bay. Take lessons, charter a boat, join the sailing club, or simply hire Ron to take you out on the Bay to see the sights.

Don’t miss catching a glimpse of the World War I destroyer, which was converted into a floating restaurant after the way until the US Navy bought it back to use for… target practice. The ship has been on the Bay ever since, and can only be seen by boat. Or by air. Pilots actually use the old ship as a navigational beacon.
