We did a two-day film shoot on the Bay involving a sailboat and camera people/equipment in the water. Needless to say it was a bit hectic with so many moving parts but Danny always had us in position and made sure we were operating safely. Captain Danny is a pro! Would work with him again i a heartbeat!
Great experience! Thank you so much Danny! Im lucky to find such a good captain. He answered very fast and communicate very nice before renting the boat, explained me everything and suggested nearest pick up point as we want! And of course had a lot of fun!
Practical boat for San Francisco and Danny was a great captain. Highly recommend.
Danny was absolutely amazing, could not have been any better. The boat is very comfortable and agile, was able to cover a lot of ground and was very fun. Danny was incredibly thoughtful about the whole experience. He had a great itinerary but was also flexible in allowing us to adjust on the fly based on our interests. He even brought us some homemade food and wine, which was all delicious. Could not recommend more highly for anyone looking to explore the bay area by water.
Capt. Doxan is amazing! Very great to work with him from planning to execution. Capt. Doxan was ready in SF at the dock and zipped across the Bay. We were completely pleased with the swift journey from SF to the East Bay and will definitely book this trip again. Thank you Capt. Doxan - a pleasure to travel the open seas with you!
