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. Parking... More

My wife purchased an Amazonlocal coupon for this outfit for my birthday: 2 persons, 3 hr sail for $75. I went online to book the sail. The web site required that I add my credit card number. Why do that if it's already paid for. I talked to Captain Bob, who said that I have to enter the CC number,... More

Highly recommended -- Capt. Bob did a great job sailing us around the bay. It was a perfect combination of informative conversation between him and the passengers, and time to go up to the front of the boat and spend alone time relaxing with my hubby, enjoying the views.

Easy to get to and easy to find. Free parking just outside the marina gate. Captain Bob met us and the other passengers at the gate about 20-30 minutes before launch. We all walked to the boat - be careful the gangway wobbles a bit in the water. There was a brief, but thorough safety talk, and then we set... More

We booked an afternoon in mid-October and had BEAUTIFUL weather for our sail. The wind was nice but not to strong, the temperature was great, and the sky was cloudless. Captain Bob is a great host, very personable, and full of information about the Bay, the bridge, the various other boats on the Bay, etc. He has loads of experience... More

My husband and I were so lucky to enjoy our own private cruise with Captain Bob for 3 hours on an absolutely beautiful day full of sunshine. Bob sailed around Alcatraz, toward the Golden Gate, along the Water Front and best yet, into McCovey Cove during a Giants Game! We had sea lions on buoys and swimming by the boat... More

If you want a cruise on the SF bay this is the cruise to take. Captain Bob was friendly and accommodating, even when we needed to change the date of our sailing. Traveling from the east bay made this much nicer too since the parking was easy and free! We had a fantastic day on the bay and Captain Bob... More

The trip with Cap'n Leo was all we could have asked for. It was a great way to see San Francisco and we were close enough to the ball game to participate in the 7th inning stretch..

Bob makes you feel right at home on his boat. Great way to see the city. Small group makes it easy to move around. Plenty of breezes on the SF bay for great sailing. All good!!!
