San Francisco Regional Mensa

Fresno City Hall


San Francisco Regional Mensa (SFRM) is a chapter of Mensa, the international society for people who score in the top 2% on IQ tests. The goals of the group are to provide and encourage social and intellectual interaction. There are approximately 2000 members in the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Joaquin Valley and we regularly schedule 80+ events each month. As of March 2012, SFRM is the fourth largest Mensa chapter in the US.

Mensa is for those who rejoice in the exercise of the mind. If you enjoy mental challenges and revel in the interplay of ideas, Mensa is an organization that will stretch your mind and expand your horizons.

San Francisco Bay Cruise

Join your fellow Mensans and guests to enjoy the lovely early-summer season with a cruise along the iconic skyline of San Francisco on Saturday May 13, starting at 4:30PM.

On our privately chartered two-hour Red & White Fleet excursion, we will sail past the infamous Alcatraz Island, picturesque Tiburon, Sausalito, Angel Island, and the spectacular Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. Dine on delicious hors d’oeuvres, crudités, chocolate dipped brownie pops, and enjoy AN OPEN BAR! A live musician will entertain us, while we enjoy one another’s scintillating company. It’s the day before Mother’s Day, so bring your mom, family, or anyone special to you.

As a membership appreciation event, all current Mensans will receive a $20 discount off of their advance ticket purchase. We even have door prizes! So book early; registrations are accepted through Friday, May 5. No same day tickets will be sold, as the cruise organizer requires a final headcount a week before the trip.
