Was a great trip, the boat is just big enough to accommodate the size of group. Enjoyed the time on the water. Rich is a fun and interesting guy.

We had a great time with Rich. It was a beautiful day in the bay, and we even went out and saw some whales.

We were camping at Bodega Dunes Campground and went sailing with Captain Rich. It was such a fun experience - so much better than touristy boat rides down in San Francisco! We brought our 2 kids, ages 4 and 6 and they hung out down in the boat's cabin, which was nice because I worried about my wild 4 year... More

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.
