I should begin by saying that I'm an experienced sailor, so my opinion is tainted by certain factors. As such, I will let readers know that we never sailed and that the skipper... read more

We booked a 3-hour sailing tour in March for our anniversary. The day before our reservation, Bob cancelled due to mechanical difficulties. It was too late to cancel our hotel, so we had to rush to make other plans. We rebooked for today and woke up to a text message from Bob saying he was cancelling due to circumstances beyond... More

Don't waste your time making arrangements with this guy, cause he probably won't follow through. I, my wife and two friends juggled our schedules so we could go to the Bay and enjoy this trip. We went down the day before and rented rooms in SF. AND it was a beautiful day!! AND he cancels! Says its too windy! But,... More

We had a reservation for a 3-hour charter and Bob never showed up. We waited around for 45 minutes. Calls went to voicemail and emails were bounced back to us. Absolutely terrible.

This guy is a joke. Cancelled our trip 3 times in advance (maybe a days notice), one time while we were standing on the dock waiting for him. Now we can get a hold of him to get our money back or schedule another trip. Don't waste your time or money.

We had a great day despite some gray cloudy skies and resin earlier in the day. Capt Bob was a great host and captain, low key and made the sail so relaxing. Would go again anytime and would love a sunny day next sail!

We purchased a voucher for a sailing tour for two via Zozi. Redeeming the voucher proved difficult enough with only very limited dates available, but we finally found a date that worked. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the dock on Saturday morning, only to be told that it was "too windy" to sail that day. This seems like... More

We had a wonderful sailing trip with Captain Bob. It was very informal and was catered to what we wanted. It was only my husband and I - the other two who were booked didn't show - and we got to see the Blue Angels up close.

We purchased a voucher for the three hour sail. The first sail was canceled the day before the scheduled sail because of mechanical issues. The second scheduled sail was canceled the morning of the sail with no reason given. In reading the recent reviews this has become a pattern, at least I didn't arrive only to find that "Captain Bob"... More
