About the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour Public Walking Tours Saturday and Sunday 12:30pm- 3:30pm The Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour was created by Sausalito artist and author, Victoria Colella in 2003 upon the publication of her first edition of the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour guide book and keepsake. Butterflute Studios, which serves as headquarters for the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour and Valhalla Signworks is located in the heart of the historic Marinship District next to the shipways where the Libertyships were built in WWII. It is also in the middle of Sausalito's wooden boat center. It is because of this unique setting Victoria was inspired to write the guide book and create these tours and treasure hunts. Guests on the Historic Houseboat Tour will finish up their tour at Butterflute Studios to enjoy the ambiance of the working waterfront over a lovely table of tea and cookies. Full profile

Really great moment with a really interesting person ! I recommend it !

I had a great time learning about the culture, history and architecture of the wooden boat community. It's really a magical hidden place that I never knew existed despite spending most of my life in the Bay Area. We met great people, discovered incredible, colorful and unique homes, and learned so much during our time. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.

I really enjoyed the interesting, amusing, informative manner in which the history of the area was put over by Victoria. Loved the history of the houseboats and communities that live there and "Sitting on the dock of the Bay."
