      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!

      Luxury Sailing Yacht on Santa Cruz 50 Sailboat Downtown San Francisco, California!

      We learned so much on what to do and not do on a charter. No alcohol, no plastic or black sole shoes are allowed on board. All of it made sense and was worth the sailing adventure excursion. I encourage anyone interested to go on the bay to do it, as our group had an amazing time with Captain Drew and his crew!!!

      44ft Golden Island Motor Yacht Charter in Sausalito, California

      One of the most important things for me as a customer is great service. Tim did not disappoint. He made sure we were comfortable, the details were easy and exact. He was friendly and fun and really made the trip perfect. The trip itself was beautiful and refreshing. Looking forward to the next one with him.

      Luxury Sailing Yacht on Santa Cruz 50 Sailboat Downtown San Francisco, California!

      Drew and team were top notch, they must have made a significant offering to the weather gods too because it was impeccable sailing in the bay. Great views of Alcatraz the Bay bridge Golden gate bridge was just an all around wonderful time with friends/colleagues and a great chat with the crew on a beautiful vessel.

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

      Captain Pam and Keith are amazing! Pam was a great communicator and made the planning and preparation super easy. Keith was on deck the day-of and made sure to take the yacht to the most sunny, smooth waters. We had a great time and highly recommend!
