A wonderful way to experience the bay! David made us feel at ease from the moment we met him. His boat was spacious and clean, we felt right at home. He took us on a relaxed ride toward AT&T park, under the Bay bridge, and past Treasure Island. His knowledge and experience made us feel we were in good hands - even taking a moment to pull in another boat in need of some help! I am so grateful to have found this gem of an experience. We will definitely be booking again.
David is an incredible captain! It was the majority of our party's first time on a boat and thanks to David, it was a great experience. He was already at the dock to greet us before our departure time. The boat itself was very clean and spacious. The boat doesn't go too fast which is good if you get motion sickness easily.
David gave us space to just relax and enjoy ourselves but when we did talk with him, he was very knowledge and is great company to be around. Would definitely be aboard his boat again in the future!
Captain David was the perfect compliment to a spectacular day on the Bay. He communicated quickly and competently. He is an interesting person and a pleasure to be in his company. He was engaging with the group, but also sat back and gave the group autonomy when appropriate. He captained the boat professionally and competently. The boat is in great condition and incredibly comfortable. Only downside is the US Coast Guard limit of 6 passengers, but David didn't write that rule.... 10 out of 10 experience.
What a day! David picked us up from Jack London Square and then we started our trip. Enjoyed the great ride to Angel Island. Then we had lunch at Sam's Anchor Cafe at Tiburon and finally returned vie Golden Gate to san Francisco. The trip was wonderful to my customers. Thanks to David and his great boat. We will definitely come back. And I warmly recommend David to anyone seeking a relaxing day in San Francisco Bay..
