CAPTAIN SERVICES If you're not qualified to operate the yacht on your own, no worries! We have a list of experienced captains. The cost of the captain is in addition to the cost of the charter and is payable directly to the captain, as required by law. ROUTES We offer several routes, with the most popular to see the city, then anchor either at Ayala Cove or SF National Maritime Park.

I have always been captivated by the spirit of exploration and the allure of boundless horizons. My passion for sailing was further ignited when I met my husband during the unforgettable experience of The Yacht Week. This transformative encounter, combined with my innate sense of adventure, inspired me to establish the company. Today, I put my heart and soul into the business, striving to share the magic of sailing with others and create unforgettable memories on the mesmerizing waters of the San Francisco Bay.

If Charterer does not promptly report the damage immediately to the Owner, it is a breach of this Agreement. Bareboat Charter.
