About This Boat

Our sailing tours San Francisco Bay are skippered, taking up to six passengers. We only do private sailing charters, so the boat is yours for the day.You may help with the sailing or simply relax and enjoy the ride- or do both. 

Rick Niles your skipper, is a US Coast Guard licensed captain with over 30 years sailing experience in San Francisco Bay,  New England, the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Mexico and South Pacific.  He understands that your sailing charter is not just an adventure but moreover, an experience in knowledgable hospitality.

Gentle Storm II is a Catalina 42, built in 2004. Captain Rick Niles is the original owner. Catalina 42s are known for being  roomy, fast and comfortable. All over the world,  these boats are seen as the number one production sailboat over 40 feet. Catalina 42s are extremely safe boats and comfortable long distance ocean cruisers. But they have  also competed in many long distance ocean races. They regularly do the Transpacific race to Hawaii and the Sydney- Hobart in Australia.

The boat is right at home in big waves and wind.

But first, they are comfortable family cruisers, easily sailed and driven.

Can’t recommend enough. We hired Rick to help us scatter our father’s ashes in the bay. He gave spot on advice on timing to get the light of sunset, was hugely flexible and respectful, and generally made our father’s last wish able to be fulfilled in spirit and action exactly as he would have wished. Thank you Rick. Meant a lot to us. -The Turners

We had some awesome 3 hours on the Bay with Rick and his Catalina 42. I give Rick 5 stars (would even give more) due to - excellent and proactive communication prior to the trip, confirming the booking, advising on clothing and the likely weather - excellent instructions on how to get to the harbor and the boat. When we arrived (early), Rick was already waiting for us and had everything ready - the Catalina 42 is a very nice boat and Rick keeps her well in shape - Rick offered us to steer the boat and work the sails - He had snacks available throughout the time, soft drinks, wine, and beer, as well as wraps, were offered (and the wraps were really good) - we had a really nice conversation throughout the trip The weather was perfect and Sausalito as a starting point for Golden Gate bridge tours is also very convenient. Can really recommend Rick and this package!
