Our sailboat tour starting on an infamous gray May day...but about two hours into the tour the sun broke through the clouds. We took the half-day Marine Wildlife Safari...and while we were a bit too late in the season for whale watching, we saw dolphins and so many sea lions. Our captain was spectacular at pointing out the interesting sites...and... More

Captain Allan enjoys his job and makes sure everyone on the boat has fun too. Easy, professional booking over the phone. We would recommend the experience on the Sunset Sail and the Sunset and view of re city was beautiful at night!!

Had a free Saturday so booked a sailing trip out into the ocean. We used the motor to get us out of the bay then went onto sail for about 2 hours out into the Pacific plus most of the way back to the marina. This was a 4 hour trip.

Ahoy there, Mike! Pete here! It was nice to meet you and have a bit of conversation, before your departure, with somebody from "across the pond". Thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your time out on the water. Captain Allan is alright in my book, too. Stay chipper! More

Couldn't be happier with our experience! First, two days prior to our sail we were looking a bad forecast in the face---no problem, they bumped our reservation back to the afternoon when it was supposed to clear. Perfect. Next, the boat was nice, clean and a smooth sail. Soft drinks and beer was provided, as were chips and a cheese/salami... More

Had a wonderful trip with Captain Al who seems to know everything there is to know about the history and happenings in the bay. Make sure you ask for Al when you book your trip. The time whizzed by. We signed up for the 2 hour trip but I could have easily done a longer trip.
