    Chad was an awesome captain. Easy to coordinate with leading up to the trip, super friendly, very knowledgeable, and wants to make the most of your time on the water. He even brought Mother’s Day flowers for my grandmother, mom, and wife! Could not recommend more.

    Ed was so amazing in making our boat day unforgettable! 🙌🏼😝 He has so much patience & coolness, always has a smile on his face, he’s so easily approachable if we had any questions to ask. He went over the rules of the boat & after that, the party started. We got on the paddle boards & the pad that floats on the water - took so many pictures. The ride was so smooth despite it being a bit cloudy - it was still beautiful outside. We will totally do it again whenever we go back to Miami! All my friends loved our 4 hour boating experience - from start to finish! He was great!! It was such a good experience all around. Great guy 👌🏼👌🏼 Highly recommend getting this boat for a good time.! Thank you so much Ed! ☺️

    If you're looking for a memorable experience with a knowledgeable captain, look no further. We traveled to Florida for a joint bachelor/bachelorette weekend with 18 people and were interested in a water activity that would accommodate our large group. In January, I reached out to Ed with an inquiry and he responded within minutes. Writing back and forth, it was immediately clear how kind and generous the man was. After booking, he followed up with details on what to expect, confirmed a second time a month prior to the trip, then called on our secured date to share details about arriving on the dock. Given the size of our party, there were, naturally, a few livelier folk. Ed's patience is saint-like and whenever I'd turn around, I was heartened by how engaged he was in each conversation he had with members of our group. It can be overwhelming booking an activity for 17 other people with varying interests, but this one is a no-brainer. Everyone in the group, even those who were a bit apprehensive about being out on the water, thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon adventure. My expectations were high and Ed exceeded every one of them. Ed, thank you for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime.

    Captain Ed was SO incredible! He made our family’s first boating experience out of this world! He was super knowledgeable, comforting, understanding, and engaging. He showed us the sites, taught me and my kids the ins and outs of sailing, and was so hospitable. If we were stranded at sea, we would TOTALLY want captain Ed there. Thank god we weren’t, wanna know why?? BECAUSE CAPTAIN ED IS THE BEST! Woot

    65ft WylieCat Sailboat Charter in San Francisco or Richmond

    Lots of options fit my requirements but I'm so happy to have gone with Wylie Charters and I hope to book them again. Great space for gathering, knowledge safe crew that will dontheir best to cater to your preferences, solid communication by Jody who wasbthere to greet us, guide us, and wait for late guests. Smooth sailing all around and let our guests be super hands on. My guests told me how great the crew was. The captain helped ease my niece's apprehensions about heeling and explained to her how it worked and we wouldn't tip over and it totally made her comfortable. I would go out on this vessel and charter with this company again in a heartbeat. Thanks for an amazing day on the Bay!

    Look no further -- book Ed for your next trip! Not only is his boat wonderful (great, spacious front area to enjoy the breeze and sea, lovely interior space for a break from the sun), but he is also so sweet and accommodating. Ed communicated with us from start to finish about everything we needed to know -- from how to get to the dock to restaurant/neighborhood recommendations for a bite afterwards. Also provided us with ice and different water toys/floats for us to lounge in the water with. 10000/10 experience, great man!!
