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

      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!

      Sail San Francisco Bay On 51' Morgan Out Island Ketch with Captain

      What a magical experience. Spending 2 hours on a beautiful sailboat with the epic backdrop of the sights of the bay is beyond description. The dolphins and otters seemed to arrive on cue as if scripted by the captain. I would recommend to anyone who wants to create a very special event for a group of 10-20. Our group was 14 and never felt crowded.

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

      One of the best experiences! Jan was communicative and responsive ahead of the trip, and attentive and helpful while out on the water. Honestly cannot recommend him enough!

      Sail San Francisco Bay On 51' Morgan Out Island Ketch with Captain

      The boat is wonderful and well described by previous reviews. We had an epic evening, thanks to Captain Andy and Tom. I can’t say enough positives about them. They were welcoming, easy to be around and kept us safe. They showed us the beauty of Sausalito and San Francisco. A few members in our group were not sure about wanting to go sailing, thanks to Captain Andy and Tom, they are looking forward to booking again with them. I highly recommend this boat and Captain Andy and Tom. Thank you again!

      Book the Private Boat Tours in - Brisbane, California on Dream Boat Motor Yacht

      Everything was great, especially our captain, Ryan. It was the perfect way to watch the air show in the bay. If I had to criticize anything, it’s that the boat interior was a little dated and worn, but this didn’t prevent us from enjoying a moment of our time on the water. Our entire group had a wonderful time!

      Rick was fantastic. The communication was very easy, the boat was beautiful and it was a great way to see the city from a new perspective. Plenty of parking near the harbor, Rick was a pro on the water and we all had a blast!
