If you're looking for a private yacht for your next celebration event in San Francisco, look no further! We can host you and your group of up to 80 people on our sleek vessel in the San Francisco Bay. We operate a US Coast Guard Inspected Passenger Vessel that is fully staffed and insured with all necessary safety equipment onboard. Our most common bookings are for 2 hours which is enough time bring your group along the city front and out into the central bay with spectacular views the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Bay Bridge. Three hours is also a popular time frame, so, if you're up for the extended adventure, we can do that as well. No alcohol may be brought onboard as we'll serve you from our bar. All of the bar details can be sorted out after booking the boat, but the most common options are a prepaid open bar or a Tally Bar (we'll charge one card at the end of the event for the total bar tab). You are welcome to make your own food arrangements, whether that be your own appetizers or some form of catering service. We're happy to recommend some caterers we've had great success with in the past. We have set our rate to include the most common and necessary charges associated with chartering our vessel in San Francisco for the minimum of 2 hours. This includes: -Hourly Vessel Rate -Captain and Crew Rates -Administrative Fees -Cleaning Fees -Crew Gratuity -Docking Fees -Port of San Francisco Fees -Bartending staff rates(Don't forget to tip these great people!) -Sound/Dance Floor Set up Options Some of these fees happen once for the charter, so the hourly rate is less for 3 hours than it is for 2. We include this here so that there are fewer surprises in the booking process. Check our other listings for different locations! Dress in layers for drastically varying temperatures. We recommend a water/wind proof outer shell layer. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
