“Great Deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

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!!!

“Sail with Captain Leo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Have no fear sailing with Captain Leo and crew! The bay was choppy going out but beautiful once behind Angel Island. We even saw a dolpin which they said was not common. Light snacks were served since it was not a dinner sail and for those wondering, yes, they have bathrooms on board. Captain Leo and his crew were personable and knowledgable about the history of the area and happy to answer any questions. We had a great time! Thanks Captain Leo and crew!
P.S. I suggest layers of clothing and taking a warm coat since SF can get bone chilling at times.

“Very relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I went on this sailboat last year with one of my best friends. We had a wonderful time, so relaxing. It was nice to get away and forgot about the stressers of life. The day was a perfect day for sailing, which surprized me since it was November. We meet a wonderful couple on this trip. I really enjoyed seeing SF from the perspective of being on the water. We passed Alcatraz and even saw some seals. Going under the Bay Bridge was also amazing. Worth every penny! I highly recommend going on this tour, you won't be disappointed. : ) Kris Wilde

“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Captain Bob and his sailboat provided the perfect setting yesterday for a family get together on the beautiful SF Bay with members converging from 3 continents. Beginning with amazing views of the City and both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges from his convenient Treasure Island berth, Captain Bob's easygoing, friendly and informative approach made it a day to remember. Highly recommend! We were further entertained by America's Cup yacht's, leaping dolphins and other wildlife.

We discovered Golden Gate Sailing Tours also does corporate team building sails, has provided amazing romantic settings for engagements and other special events. Definitely check out Golden Gate Sailing Tours - we'll be back - Thank you Captain Bob!

“Excellent finale to our trip in San Francisco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Thank you Capt. Bob for an excellent sail around the bay! Such a relaxing way to take in the city sights from the water. Capt. Bob is an excellent guide and has a true passion for what he does. It was a three hour sail which I highly recommend to everyone! We sailed under the Bay Bridge, passed Alcatraz and other sites and even saw one of the boats raced in America's Cup! Will definitely sail with Capt. Bob again when back in San Francisco!!
