Bay Voyager
About
Bay Voyager is happy to announce the opening of our new location at Pier 39 in San Francisco! The range of tours offered by Bay Voyager include viewing historic ships, visiting former mooring sites of abandoned gold rush ships, and experiencing active estuaries populated by cargo ships and tug boats. You’ll see the San Francisco waterfront, cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz, Under the Bay Bridge to the Port of Oakland, past AT&T Park (Home to the San Francisco Giants) and Back to Pier 39. While Bay Voyager does have specific routes, deviation is an integral part of the experience, making each adventure an engaging and exhilarating encounter.According to owner and captain, Charles Jennings, “we feel there is a need to provide more intimate and individualized tours that travel closer and give more in depth guided tours. By being in a small and agile vessel, guests can have an up close and personal adventure while traveling to all corners of the always-fascinating bay.”

An amazing tour of San Francisco from the bay and beyond! Captain Charles accommodated our family same-day to tour San Francisco(from the bay!). My 3 boys absolutely loved this tour.... the scenery was amazing and Captain Charles offered a unique tour and perspective of this great city! From Oracle Park to the Oakland Bridge to the SF Port to Jeremiah O’Brien to Pier 39 to the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge and Seals Rock Beach, I highly recommend this tour.... it’s worth every penny! Thank you, Captain Charles!

This was a fantastic day out we even got to see some Whales and Dolphins. A must if you are in the area! The trip is 90 minutes long and you get to visit both bridges as well as see the city from a different perspective. Jarred was our captain who made the experience very enjoyable!

One the the best services ever. Our host, Charles Jennings, took the time to explain everything about the trip, he took the time to properly fit our life jackets and be sure that we were comfortable. He always was very patient and knowledgeable about San Francisco Bay.

The trip was amazing, the views of the Golden Gate Bridge were beautiful and the Bay is always impressive, but it is better when you have somebody that makes you feel safe and comfortable.

What an AMAZING Valentine’s Day adventure with a great company! Jared was so nice and informative, taking us around to so many cool bridges and interesting spots. On a cold windy day, it was great that they give you full gear so that helped us stay warm and have a blast. Can’t wait to do it again. Thank you Jared!!

They were great all the way around!! I decided to take the trip last minute and they quickly got me on the next boat within 10 minutes. Charles the Captain was amazing with loads of knowledge of the bay, which he shared, and Captaining a boat. I definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting San Francisco. Loved it!!!!

Bay Voyager and Captain Charles were fantastic. We are locals and had out of town guests. Their one wish was to "see the Golden Gate Bridge". We have done the Bay Voyager tours twice before and surprised them with a trip on the bay. We had such a laugh at their reaction. I asked them...are you seeing the Golden Gate bridge? We were right underneath! They were so excited and thrilled. I know our trip is going to be something they will never forget. Thanks to Bay Voyager, we made their wish come true.

Had an amazing trip today with Captain Jarrod and Charles both guys very experienced, knowledgable and were very funny. If we weren’t going to LA tomorrow we would do it again couldn’t recommend them enough. I’m sure other boat trips are good but if you want a bit of a thrill as well, choose Bay Voyager. Thanks lads
