Angel Island and Sausalito

Dec 03, 2018 - National Geographic Venture


Waking up in the San Francisco Bay aboard National Geographic Venture’s inaugural voyage is an experience that sticks in one’s mind. Twinkling lights outlining the Bay Bridge and the city skyline brought the sunrise to life this morning. Morning adventures took us ashore to Angel Island, which is a chunk of land chock full of history with military garrisons, old hospitals, guard houses, and quarantine and immigration stations. Hiking the perimeter trail rewards hikers with 360 views of San Francisco Bay; taking in the city skyline, Alcatraz, and Treasure Island step by step. Sausalito caught our attention this afternoon with its endearing locals, fine wines, and tasteful art galleries.
