Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour
Sausalito, the first community north of the Golden Gate bridge, is one of the most colorful places in the Bay area. This is a community of hillside homes, marinas and unusual house boats. Learn how this village grew around wooden boat building with the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour.
Today Sausalito is an artists area but the tradition of wooden boat building still lingers at the old Spaulding Boatworks and the Arques School of Traditional Boat Building. The city tours start with the oldest wood hull ferry boat on the West Coast and move on to the shipyard where the WWII Liberty Ships were built.
Many small art and crafts shops are tucked away in the old boatyard. American Impressionist Walter Kuhlman was the first artist to build a studio in the decommissioned boat yard, followed by other artists, sculptors and crafts people. Explore the historic houseboat docks and learn about living on the water from residents of this community on this exciting and unusual tour.
