The only thing cooler than our live music series this summer is the tent the bands are playing under—our sponsor Lagunitas Brewing Company had the band’s pop-up tent especially designed with grafitti art of the company mascot and the logo. Don’t miss Angel Island Live every saturday 2-5 on the Cantina deck. Cold beer, Hog Island oysters on the grill, cold beer and some really good music from local performers. We are so cool….
Angel Island is said to be a secret hideaway for area boaters—Ayala Cove is sheltered with minimum winds and tides and gives you great access to the Cove Cafe and the the many trails and beaches on beautiful Angel Island. Moorings and slips are first come first serve—sorry no reservations. The slips are day use only but the moorings are available for longterm stay. The slip fees are $30 per night and the moorings are $15. If no ranger is present please leave the fees in the lock box at the end of the dock. Cash only.`
The California Honeydrops kicked off our live music series this summer with an amazing afternoon of great music, oysters and beer. This is a serious good time—bet there next Saturday from 2-5. Sage–rhythm and blues on the 19th.
Over three hundred volunteers from the tourism industry arrived bright and early Friday morning and began work making Angel Island an even more beautiful place. The “hard days work” was organized by Tourism Cares, a non-profit organization that works to preserve historic sites around the United States through donations and the hard work of hundreds of volunteers. The day began with a ferry ride from San Francisco and ended with a barbeque on the lawn of the visitors center. The island simply sparkles—come see for yourself!

It’s a love hate realationship with the geese on Angel Island who WON’T MIGRATE but the babies they hatch every year are completely adorable. Now is the time to see them in all their adorable fuzzy cuteness–it won’t last long before they turn into really loud abrasive adults. Our geese are pretty used to folks getting “up close” but be careful the hiss is the warning before the chase.
