Bring your own main course to eat on the boat; either something to drink (wine, juice, soda) or a dessert/hors d'oeuvre to share. The leader will bring cups and plates. Also, we recommend leaving a bottle of water in your car for hydrating after the hike. The cruise is $30 and is from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. IMPORTANT: You must make your own reservation for the Sunset Cruise. Buy your ticket online from the Angel Island Tiburon Ferry Company. These sunset cruises are popular and usually sell out, so buy your ticket a few weeks in advance before showing up. Purchase your ticket online by August 15 and receive a 60% discount by using the promo code: CELEBRATE60 during the booking process (click on "Add promo or discount code" on the page where you enter your payment info).
Total mileage is 9 miles, but the walk will be broken up into two segments with a 2-hour break between. Wear comfortable shoes (we’ll be walking on pavement) and bring a windbreaker for the cruise (it gets cool on the water). Bring a flashlight if you wish, but it’s not needed, and using one makes it harder to see the stars.
Bring: your meal, beverage/snack, water for post-hike and warm-layered clothes. Meet: Blackie's Pasture parking lot in Tiburon at 4:00 PM; the hike begins at 4:15 PM. Cruise: Boat loads at 6:00 PM, leaves at 6:30 PM sharp and returns at 8:00 PM. Return: to cars between 10:00 and 10:30 PM. Directions: Take Tiburon exit from Hwy 101 in Mill Valley.

Carpool: If you want a ride or can give one, post a message to this event listed on our Facebook Group page. Level of Difficulty: 2A (6 to less-than-10 miles, less than 1,000 ft elevation gain).
