The range of tours offered by Bay Voyager include viewing historic ships, visiting former mooring sites of abandoned gold rush ships, and experiencing active estuaries populated by cargo ships and tug boats. You’ll see the San Francisco waterfront, cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz, Under the Bay Bridge to the Port of Oakland, past AT&T Park (Home to the San Francisco Giants) and Back to Pier 39. While Bay Voyager does have specific routes, deviation is an integral part of the experience, making each adventure an engaging and exhilarating encounter.According to owner and captain, Charles Jennings, “we feel there is a need to provide more intimate and individualized tours that travel closer and give more in depth guided tours. By being in a small and agile vessel, guests can have an up close and personal adventure while traveling to all corners of the always-fascinating bay.” « less

Want a great tour at a great price with personal service? Then don't miss out on this opportunity. Captain Charles makes sure you are safe, warm in the wind/ water proof pants and hooded parkas he provides and gives a full 90 minute your with narrative. His boat is comfortable, fast and smoothly cuts through the water. We saw sea... More

Myself and my brother had the most amazing trip around the bay. Charles customised the trip for us, we visited Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Oakland Bridges to name but a few! What a superb way to see the sights. Cover up for the ride of your lives! Absolutely brilliant fun! Lou and Rich from Yorkshire- UK July 2014

My wife and I and our friends took a cruise on the Bay Voyager today. This is an attraction you should not miss. The Captain was friendly, knowledgeable and it was obvious that he loves the San Francisco waterfront. The ride is in a rigid inflatable boat that seats 12 comfortably. The Captain supplies foul weather gear and life preservers.... More

This was so great. I had been looking forward to it for weeks. Charles has been living in the area all his life and will tell stories from his life and SF history. He goes by all the basic attractions in the bay such as both bridges, Alcatraz, Treasure Island, and O'Brian. He knows a lot of history of all... More

Our water level tour with Charles afforded our family an unique perspective on SF, a true highlight from our week in 'The City'.

We booked for 6 of us to go on this trip as a birthday present for a friend. It was such fun. Getting into the foul weather gear alone was pretty funny. Once on board, captain Charles told us lots of interesting facts about the bay and we got to race around some of the best sights. It was exciting... More

I've lived in San Francisco for 10 years and our 90 minutes this past weekend with Charlie on Bay Voyager definitely ranks as my #1 "tourist" experience in SF. I've been sailing on the Bay a few times but the Bay Voyager beat all of my past experiences, hands down. Once you hitch a ride on the Bay Voyager, you... More

By chance we took this ride and the experience was awesome. The captain was very entertaining and humble. Sea lions, golden gate bridge, evergreen vessel, alcatraz views were truly amazing. And best part of the trip was bumpy ride with cool speed and huge waves. A must have experience in pier 39!!

As a local San Franciscan, this boat ride is now my favorite tourist attraction to do here in The City! The friendly and knowledgable Captain Charles took a group of us on a wonderful ride around the bay, giving us a nice history of the area and stunning views of the City. We were so close to Alcatraz and rode... More

I had so much fun on the Bay Voyager tour! Captain Charles is a super friendly and outgoing tour guide with plenty of knowledge of the bay and San Francisco. I definitely suggest going when the Giants are in town and going for a trip to McCovey Cove. This tour is a must do for tourists in The City.
