We had a great time with Danny! Kids enjoyed themselves and he went above and beyond to make us at home on his fantastic boat. Danny had great information about the sites and was able to answer questions. Very glad I booked the experience. Recommend wholeheartedly.
Even if this was a rowboat, I’d recommend Danny to anyone. He’s so accommodating and nice. He has some incredible experience and shared great stories. He took us everywhere we wanted to go, was prepared with everything and with him guiding we were able to see seals, dolphins and other wildlife. If you’re a small party, this is a great boat. It’s fast, and very safe.
A million thank you’s, Captain Danny! You made my husbands surprise birthday better than I even hoped! We had such a perfect time. I will say that COVID allowed us to experience Angel Island all to ourselves! We will never forget it! We saw seals and dolphins! Both bridges were spectacular. The tour of the city was a great perspective. Captain Danny is kind and professional with great knowledge of the bay. It was a perfect day on the water. We will be doing this again!
We've had an amazing experience on Danny's boat. He was a very kind host and really did his best to give us a good time! Since it was our first time renting a boat in the bay area, he even prepared a nice tour, covering the most popular and beautiful places and knew exactly when to stop or slow down for taking a good picture. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thanks again, Danny!
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!
