A girl's day of sailing with Captain Sparky on the Flying Tiger-Soverel 36 was amazing! We boarded in Sausalito and booked a 3 hour charter where we sailed under the Golden Gate Bride and out into Pacific. It was a gorgeous day on the bay, high swells in the Pacific, and the wine and lunch Captain Kirk offered was wonderful!... More

Had a family group that wanted to experience San Francisco Bay area from the water. Even though it was a high wind day with large swells we had a blast. The crew was great and let us "assist" in sailing the Bay Wolf and passed on some of their extensive knowledge of sailing and the area.

We took the cruise as part of a release celebration. It was real fun to be out on the water. The route took us from Sausalito, under the golden gate bridge, all the way around Alcatraz, under the bay bridge and back to Sausalito. Capt Kirk and his crew seemed like experienced sailors in these waters and knew a lot... More

This was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco . Great sail down the bay and out to the Pacific under the Golden Gate Bridge. Captain Doug is quite the mariner and also very knowledgeable about local history and geology. If we had the time I would book another sail with company on one of their larger yachts. The... More

We were offered wine, beer or soda for the sail out to Angel Island. Some more of Kirk's friendly crew were waiting to meet us at Angel Island. They had... More

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband's birthday sailing on the Bay and watching the sunset over the city. We sailed on the Osprey from Oakland with Captain Doggan and his crew. All of which were polite, friendly and helpful. From the very beginning they made this a very special event and as the sunset, the crew bought out... More

The views that Captain Dogen takes you through are incredible and unforgettable, especially when we got to sail under the Golden Gate bridge! He was so knowledgable about San Francisco and told us a lot about the major sites and other islands. Sailing with Captain Dogen while drinking wine, snacking on cheeses, and feeling the fresh breeze on your face... More
