Never thought I could be...

Never thought I could be on an America Cup racing ship. Crew was awesome and let us help on the boat. Windy and cold day. Coats available. Went under the golden gate.
Unique and unforgettable experience

Amazing experience with an awesome, knowledgeable crew. Bring a warm jacket, and don’t forget sunblock!
A Wonderful Sailing Adventure

The fast sailing was so much fun for our family! It was the highlight of our vacation. The crew gave good instructions to stay safe and enjoy the sailing. We are coming back so that other family members, who weren't able to join us on this trip will get to experience this exhilerating sail ride.
Wonderful time

Money well spent

We had a great time on our excursion! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed getting to participate in sail handling and a bit of time on the helm. The boat is a modern engineering marvel, and something to behold. Highly recommended for experienced sailors and novices, alike!
Great sailing

Had a fantastic day sailing. Skipper John, crew Sean and I unfortunately can’t remember the other gentleman’s name, sorry, were great and very informative and helpful. The weather was all we could wish for, a good breeze and sunny. Yes it was cold but everyone expected than and dressed accordingly. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend it to anyone.
I stayed back 2 days in SFO for this...

I stayed back 2 days in SFO for this and it was absolutely worth it - as I am a sailing enthusiast. the boat is 90 feet of beauty and moves unbelievably smooth and fast. The crew was extremely encouraging and involved the guest in several activities starting from rigging the boat to allowing everyone to take the wheel helm . They had some lovely jackets on board for those who were ill prepared - though the booking form clearly said that a jacket wouldbe necessay. We were fortunate to see baby Porpiose jumping along side the boat for a short distance. the route was pretty scenic, going past Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge offering a good optional view of the SFO skyline.
If you love sailing this is for you...

If you love sailing this is for you. Sailed around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge, we were even lucky enough to see whales and dolphins! Must do especially during whale watching season.
