We were a family of five adults in early June and loved going out with Rich despite the fact that it wasn't very windy, so there wasn't much "sailing." We enjoyed cruising, especially around the head and near the island with the sea lions. Later in the day we walked the Bodega Head and saw how far out we went.... More

The captain was a great guide to the bay and area around it. Exciting on a windy day, but Rich took great concern for our well being and safety

My wife and I took the sailing trip with Captain Rich and thorougly enjoyed it. Early in the trip, Rich told us he thought that the customer was king and he proved he believed that. We sailed about three hours, maybe half of it with Rich managing the sails and my wife manning the tlller, with a grin from ear... More

Rich is great with kids. We were 3 adults and our two kids. Rich showed us the navigation charts, how to steer, and we saw the beautiful bay. He took us towards the sea lions.

Had a great time and everyone enjoyed the trip. Captain was very knowledgeable and experienced. Everyone left feeling they had truly had a great experience. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Our sailing was on a windy, sunny afternoon. It was an exhilarating ride. (I use a cane and needed a a hand to get in and out of the boat, but if you can climb stairs, this outing is for you!) We enjoyed hearing Rich tell us about the area and seeing his sailing skill. It helped to be wearing... More

2 couples, in our late 50s/early 60s. Charming, entertaining and knowledgeable, Captain Rich was a true sailor. He was focused both on our pleasure and safety. I recommend Bodega Bay Sailing to all.

Captain Rich was friendly and responsive from the first telephone call through the sailing experience. He took my family out on a sailing trip the Wednesday before thanksgiving and helped create a very memorable holiday week! His confident sailing skills was very comforting as it was everyone's first time sailing. I highly recommend the trip with Rich!

It had been 13 years since my Husband and I had been to Bodega Bay. The Northern California Coastline is absolutely breathtaking, and the biodiversity here just leaves you in awe. From surfing Sea Lions, to Parasitic Jaeggers, huge bait balls, and blue whales breathing off on the horizon. If you ever get the chance to travel here head out... More

My wife, son, and I took an afternoon sail with Rich and had an awesome time. All aspects of the trip were enjoyable and we will repeat the the experience on future trips to Bodega Bay. We were very comfortable with Rich's experience and handling of the boat. We vacation frequently at Bodega Bay and wish that we would have... More
