Sail away on a gray SF day...great time

We had a great day despite some gray cloudy skies and resin earlier in the day. Capt Bob was a great host and captain, low key and made the sail so relaxing. Would go again... read more

I should begin by saying that I'm an experienced sailor, so my opinion is tainted by certain factors. As such, I will let readers know that we never sailed and that the skipper had the auto tiller on the whole tour; in and out of the marina was the only time that he took the helm (said he burns those...

This guy is a joke. Cancelled our trip 3 times in advance (maybe a days notice), one time while we were standing on the dock waiting for him. Now we can get a hold of him to get our money back or schedule another trip. Don't waste your time or money.

We had a great day despite some gray cloudy skies and resin earlier in the day. Capt Bob was a great host and captain, low key and made the sail so relaxing. Would go again anytime and would love a sunny day next sail!

We purchased a voucher for a sailing tour for two via Zozi. Redeeming the voucher proved difficult enough with only very limited dates available, but we finally found a date that worked. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the dock on Saturday morning, only to be told that it was "too windy" to sail that day. This seems like... More

We had a wonderful sailing trip with Captain Bob. It was very informal and was catered to what we wanted. It was only my husband and I - the other two who were booked didn't show - and we got to see the Blue Angels up close.

We purchased a voucher for the three hour sail. The first sail was canceled the day before the scheduled sail because of mechanical issues. The second scheduled sail was canceled the morning of the sail with no reason given. In reading the recent reviews this has become a pattern, at least I didn't arrive only to find that "Captain Bob"... More

Do not use this company. We had reservations to go for a sail on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and the captain simply never showed up. He didn't email or call, or ever contact me to apologize. I asked for a refund and never got a response. By the way, we had driven a long way, and the trip was a... More

Recently, my wife and I joined 2 other couples for a 3 hour Bay Tour w/ Golden Gate Sailing Tours. For the most part, our 3 hours were spent going in a circle around Treasure Island. Not right next to it though, but that was still the route :) The boat itself was nice, and very comfortable. There really is... More

Booked a private 3 hour sailing on the bay with captain Bob for 6. Weather was great. Captain Bob made sure we had a nice experience. We were able to see the Golden Gate Bridge, dolphins, a seal, Bay bridge, and Alcatraz. Captain Bob was very informative, social, and very accommodating. It was nice to park on treasure island.
