It was such a wonderful experience on the Privateer. The entire staff from the man who checked us in to the Captain were all professionals who treated us like kings. I wanna give a special shout out to the first mate, he was the BEST!!!!

Loud, obnoxious passenger ruined the serenity of the boat ride. Captain and crew member were clueless about calming her down.

Best way to spend an afternoon by and on the bay - we had a great time!
Captain Mike and First Mate Patrick made the trip super enjoyable and made sure our wineglasses never went empty. I took my friend for a birthday surprise - she loves sailing...continued

Once we got on the boat it was fun. The boat is just small enough to give a sense of sailing but large enough to feel secure. It was a beautiful day on the bay and we had good company.

For our friend's 75th birthday this was a great experience! Due to the large number who had signed up they split the group onto two boats which was really great. Beer and wine served, great hosts and captain. Dress warmly with a hat and sunglasses...continued

I was rather disappointed. Just before going out on the Bay, the fog moved in by the Golden Gate and the captain decided to stay out of the fog.
He therefore skipped sailing along the Golden Gate which was understandable but he also skipped...continued

Don't miss this tour! From Fisherman's Wharf to the Ferry Building, with a loop around Alcatraz, you will have a fantastic view of San Francisco and the Bay! The staff was very nice and friendly!

This sailing event was pure enjoyment! Not only was the customer service excellent, (with an element of humor!), but the event was on time, and the rules and regulations of safety were thorough and concise. The views were spectacular!

Crew was great (captain and other guy). It was pretty windy and the waves rocked the boat a bit. That and the fact that it was pretty cold made the experience not that enjoyable. I'd recommend this tour only during warm weather with little wind.

There were 13 guests and 2 staff persons on a very small sailing ship. The Privateer had more seating space below unavailable to guests. Thirteen of us hung on the edge of the ship; there was small wooden bench on the aft of the ship which...continued
