      Excellent yacht for the SF Bay! Wind power/green clean fun! Stable Catamaran with large enclosed main salon with amazing views! In Richmond, CA

      Jan is a very knowledgeable and friendly captain with sailing experience all around the world. His boat is awesome. It has places to ride and feel the speed, wind and sun, or you can ride in the cabin in comfort. The cabin will protect you from the wind and allow you to sit in the shade while allowing you to see everything all around the boat.

      Rent the 38' Delta Fishing Boat in San Francisco (Captained Only)

      This boat was so incredibly fun - Brent’s captain staff were kind and knowledgeable and kept safety as the highest priority. I was nervous that it was going to be a tight fit for ~22 people but it ended up working out pretty great! Solid facilities, plenty of places to sit, and an indoor area for storage (we brought tons of snacks and drinks for a birthday event).

      Wonderful and helpful captains! They brought us under the Golden Gate Bridge and around the coastline at night to see the city lights was simply magical!

      Captain Brent showed my friends and I all the best views out on the San Francisco Bay. Between the daylight, sunset, and night views, it was all truly incredible :) Can’t wait to book again! My group was 17 people and we all fit perfectly! Thanks again Captain Brent!

      Rick was a fantastic host. He had the boat rigged and ready to go upon our arrival. His pre-trip communication was spot on, letting us know what to expect weather-wise, as well as what we would experience out on the bay. Everything went according to plan and we had a marvelous time. I highly recommend a cruise on General Storm. Thanks again Rick, can’t wait to get here again.
