About 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.

    44ft Yacht charter in Sausalito

    I rented the boat with Captain Timothy as a surprise for Father's Day. He was very responsive to messages, met us exactly at the time we designated, and was super friendly and helpful. His boat is fully stocked with snacks and drinks, and we had a fun, relaxing cruise around the bay. He let our 8-year-old daughter drive the boat, and had lively chats with my Australian father-in-law. Highly recommend hiring him - you won't be disappointed!

    Amazing experience! Rick is a well seasoned captain. He was a great communicator from inquiry to day of updates and safety. We felt lsafe and comfortable on his beautiful boat. He knew of all the good spots, great conversation and laid back vibez . When things got choppy in the SF bay he was calm and humorous! I can’t wait to book another trip on the Gentle Storm II.

    Great Captain who knows his boat. You can't go wrong booking a trip with Rick! He also knows a lot of Fleetwood Mac trivia....test him when you're on a starboard tack....he can sail and sing at the same time!!!!

    Sail San Francisco Bay On Yacht with Captain Pam

    Had a great boat ride with Captain Keith. He was very communicative prior to and during our trip. Our group of 16 had so much fun and he was very accommodating, making sure everyone had a blast, while making sure we were being safe! The views were great and he let us steer for fun as well :)
