“Born and raised on the water, Captain Memo has sailed before he could walk. As one of his passions in life, a day on the water is hard to beat!”
Aboard since 2015
From Novato, CA
Cpt. Memo was an awesome host! We had a great time and will repeat in the future when we have more time for a longer cruize. We had a four hour cruise under full sail started with a trek out beyond Golden Gate, then down past San Francisco city bay front out to Alcatraz, then out to Tiburon, around Angel Island past Belvedere, and back to Sausalito. Basic Instinct is a beautiful boat, fast and fun. Highly recommend a cruise with Capt. Memo.
Easily my most memorable trip out in the bay! Cap Memo and his beautiful/rare "Basic Instinct" were everything we hoped for on our excursion. He is very familiar with the bay and was excited to share his knowledge with us. We brought our own food and drinks, but Memo also greeted us with fresh-cut fruit, snacks and beverages, which was a really nice gesture. We departed and returned on time and, logistically, the trip went perfectly. We saw several porpoises, plenty of seals, and the highlight was an ultra-rare humpback sighting, which makes our crew one of very few people to have witnessed whales in the bay! Memo was as excited as us so we tacked a few times to get as much time with the whale (from quite a distance, for its safety). What a perfect day. Thanks, Cap Memo!
