We spent half a day sailing with Captain Dan and it was one of the highlights of our California vacation. He us friendly and knowledgable, and a skilled sailor. We learned about the history of the bay, and got to see it from a different perspective onboard his classy vintage sailboat. Highly recommended.

Captain Dan and first mate (Sali the dog) were awesome! My sister chartered the boat for her birthday with me and 4 of her besties. We got at the boat at 6:30pm on a Monday night. Had some tasty pre-launch beverages and then set sail. Sailed on the bay for a couple of hours. Never got too cold or rough.... More

Was an absolutely fantastic time sailing with Captain Dan - so easy to be with, so knowledgeable, so beautiful sailing in the bay - good food & drink - and will 100% recommend him to all my friends. Do it soon - sailing in the bay is special.

Life vest were provided and even Sali had one! The entire crew consisted of my husband and myself, his parents, Captain Dan and Sali. We took of from the Berkeley... More

Our evening sailboat ride from the Berkeley Marina into the Bay was one of the highlights of our week's visit to Berkeley. Captain Dan was great to deal while we arranged the ride via email from several states away, and a wonderful host, who emphasized safety while also being a well-informed and really fun. We were a group of five,... More

Went sailing with Capt. Dan for the first time on 5/27/12 for the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary fireworks celebration. Capt. Dan is a perfect host: makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome on his lovely classic wood sloop. He encourages learning, incorporates safety as a natural element to having a good time, and shares his infectious enthusiasm for sailing. Am... More

Whether you live here, or are a visitor to the area, seeing the San Francisco Bay from the water is simply A MUST. I... More
