About
The experience begins at Bluewater Yacht Harbor in Sausalito, where you will receive a full safety briefing and tour of the boat. Departing the marina, we will cruise along the charming Sausalito foreshore, and under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge for a once in a lifetime, better than the postcard photo. We will then make our way through the heart of the San Francisco Bay with breathtaking 360 degree views of the Bay, including the San Francisco skyline, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Angel Island. Headed north through Racoon Strait, we will tour the Marin waterside with views of the opulent homes and brilliant vistas which dot the coastline of Belvedere and Tiburon. Finally, we slow it down and drop anchor in Richardson Bay to allow you to take in all you have seen and relax within the privacy of your own private yacht to enjoy views and whatever additional snacks or libations you have brought aboard.  www.shanutski.com

Where do I start? Should I start with the fact that Captain Tim is nothing short of amazing? Or should I start with the fact that we saw some of the most beautiful scenery we’ve seen in California? Or maybe we should talk about the sea lions that we saw feasting on a salmon up close and personal (it was something out of National Geographic, y’all!).

Let’s just say, we had so much fun that we went out twice with Captain Tim in the five days we were in Sausalito celebrating our 20 year anniversary. This was by far, the highlight of our trip and something that we will do each and every time we go back to visit.

Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this opportunity. You will have a fantastic time and will be educated along the way by Captain Tim. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and we ended up spending most of our time sitting with him just talking. He’s like an old friend now and we can’t wait to visit again soon! Thanks for making our trip special. :)

Captain Tim was an amazing host. My husband and I lucked out and were the only ones that booked the cruise therefore making it a private tour. It was such a great experience with great sites to see. I would recommend this to anyone as we'd love to book this the next time we're in town.

We enjoyed a great afternoon out on the Bay with Captain Tim aboard MV Shanutski.

Tim is a very experienced and knowledgeable Captain and gave us a great tour of the Bay from Sausalito. The trip was three hours in variable weather, but culminated in BBQ whilst anchored up in a lovely setting. The yacht is very well equipped with plenty of deck sheltered deck area. I'd happily return for another trip.

Captain Tim was fantastic! He is in tune with his client’s needs and provides everything you need to have a 100% positive experience. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a tour of the Bay as a First Choice!

Capt. Tim and Jennifer hosted our family for an evening Bay cruise that my daughter won in the Edna Maguire Garden Faire. Capt. Tim supports local schools and generously offered a 3 hour bay cruise as part of the raffle. We set a date and had fabulously warm weather with hardly a breath of wind, making the Bay cruise a delightful evening for all.

Both Capt. Tim and Jennifer were gracious hosts and really made our evening a pleasant, enjoyable and safe experience. We had four somewhat rowdy kids and two adults that fitted comfortably on the MV Shanutski.

The yacht is well equipped and the ride was smooth sailing all the way. I used the BBQ onboard to cook the kids hot dogs and they ate their fill of the well appointed snack bar.

Capt. Tim's local knowledge took us a to a sheltered anchorage for dinner, where we watched the sun set behind Mt. Tam and city lights twinkle. He and Jennifer were gracious hosts and everyone had a wonderful time.

Thank you for the memories, we'll be back again!

Excellent evening with Captain Timothy. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. As soon as we stepped aboard we felt that it was our own private yacht. We were given freedom to roam throughout as we desired and there were plenty of complementary snacks and beverages for us and our two children to enjoy. The itinerary was awesome with spectacular views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. Would highly recommend this.

Some friends and I chartered this boat last weekend while visiting the area for some concerts. We all had a spectacular time on board the Shanuski with Captain Timothy!
He was very accommodating and fun, and a great Captain. This really was an incredible experience that I highly recommend. Although it sounds ridiculously extravagant, to charter your own private yacht; it really is reasonably priced, considering the experience and location. I would say it was worth every penny of the the cost for such an adventure. There was a wide variety of snacks on board, and hot and cold (non-alcoholic) beverages provided. There were blankets, a fireplace, a beautiful, cozy interior room if you can pull yourself away from being out in other areas of the boat enjoying all of the sights. Watching sailboats go by, hydrofoil wake boarders, cruising around Alcatraz, Angel Island, and under the Golden Gate Bridge, let alone enjoying the SF skyline, the dolphins, seals, and marine birds were all memories of a lifetime. Can not recommend this trip enough. Thank you, Captain Timothy!
