Join author and historian Aleta George and the Jack London Society for an exclusive Jack London-themed boat tour on Sunday, June 5, 2022from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The Up Bay tour aboard the Pacific Pearl, a 50-foot Delta Marine charter boat, begins in Vallejo, motors about eight-miles up the Strait to Benicia, and returns to Vallejo. 

Jack London is best known for his world adventures, but his training ground, muse, and lifelong love was the San Francisco Bay. He sailed these waters at the turn of the 19th century as a teen wharf rat, pirate, freelancer with the California Fish Patrol, and bestselling author.

The trip will take you on a journey of fact and fiction to geographic locations that serve as touchstones to London’s imagination and experiences, while exploring the cultural diversity of those on the water with him. Aleta George, your guide, is writing a book about Jack London and his lifelong relationship with the San Francisco Bay.

This tour is being presented in partnership with the Jack London Society and in cooperation with the Vallejo Yacht Club, of which London was once a member.
