About Sausalito

Poised on the San Francisco Bay at the northern end of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito has been by turns the home of several bootleggers’ operations during Prohibition, a shipbuilding center during World War II, and has now assumed a new identity as a haven for artists, as well as a charming residential district and boater’s paradise. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate, but the brisk breezes off of the Bay help keep it cool and fresh year round.

    My wife and I had an amazing experience with Rick on his beautiful boat! Rick is very knowledgeable about sailing, puts you at ease and makes you feel safe onboard, has a ton of stories to share, and we loved that we got a chance to steer his boat (following his expert guidance). We will do this again without hesitation when we get the opportunity, it is worth every penny.

    Captain Timothy was amazing, trip was awesome. My siblings and I put flowers in the bay for our dad and Timothy was so respectful and wonderful to us. We would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. I hope to get its back as a tradition with Timothy and his beautiful Shanutski!

    We planned a small bachelorette for my sister and this was the perfect experience. Captain Timothy's yacht is clean and well stocked with beverages, snacks, and pretty much what you need to make it an enjoyable time at sea. We were allowed to bring our own food & beverages which we appreciate very much. Captain T is a great host! Enthusiastic, friendly, and knows his way around. We had awesome views of the bay. Thank you so much! Hope to book again in the future.

    Sail San Francisco Bay On 51' Morgan Out Island Ketch with Captain

    We had a fantastic time celebrating by wife’s big birthday and a couple other celebrations. Captain Keith and Elena were fun to be around. We even got to get in the action of pulling up a sail and commandeering the boat. Made some wonderful memories with our group of 8 friends.

    Yacht for San Francisco Bay Cruise

    The whole experience was great! We wanted to take some friends visiting out on the bay and Sean gave a us a full tour. Sausalito harbor to Golden Gate Bridge to city front to Alcatraz to the backside of Tiburon, then Angel Island and back to Sausalito. The boat was very comfortable with places to hangout on the bow, up top, the stern and in the salon when it was chilly. It was a great value for a private tour. Sean is on our list the next time we want to go out on the bay!
