Top boat rental and water experiences to try in Sausalito
Poised on the San Francisco Bay at the northern end of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito has been by turns the home of several bootleggers’ operations during Prohibition, a shipbuilding center during World War II, and has now assumed a new identity as a haven for artists, as well as a charming residential district and boater’s paradise. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate, but the brisk breezes off of the Bay help keep it cool and fresh year round.

Thank you so much. We had a really good time. All my guest said it was the best experience ever! . The boat was on time from the pier 40 in San Francisco. The Captain is a very nice person and she waited for all my guest. We had the best sunset ever with the Golden Gate in the back. And the city lights at night. Amazing experience. Very clean and safe.
Memo was the perfect guide for our sail around the bay. He was friendly, fun and accommodating to our group. The boat was beautiful, the sailing was expertly done and our experience was unforgettable. If you’re looking to sail and have an amazing adventure, Memo is your guy!!!
Captain Timothy is the man! His boat is cozy, comfortable, clean and well-stocked with all the amenities. Timothy himself is a consummate host, courteous, professional and welcoming. We over-estimated traffic and arrived early. He said "No problem, let's just get underway early!" We will definitely do this again :)
Our group had the time of our lives with Captain Pam on "Glory Days"! Even though it was cold, windy, and rainy during our trip, we enjoyed every bit of it. We ordered a catering package for our trip, and it was prepared very neatly below deck. I highly recommend booking with Captain Pam if you're wanting a fun and adventurous experience!
We had a super trip from Sausalito today. Communication prior to our trip was really clear, the boat was fantastic, and Captain Pam was a great skipper and knowledgeable guide. We were 12 adults and 3 toddlers and the boat was a perfect size, and the toddlers were very safe. Recommended
Captain Tim skippered a marvelously smooth & delightful tour of the Bay on a Thanksgiving weekend. He is indeed a gentleman yachtsman from his conviviality to his extensive knowledge of the Bay - all so generously shared. The Shanutski is so beautifully, tastefully and comfortably appointed with everything one could possibly need or want. We were cozy, safe and secure. An enjoyable outing for all! The Shanutski & Captain Tim are highly recommended.
