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.

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

Fantastic! What an exceptional experience! The crew was wonderful and we had such a great time from start to finish. It was a beautiful day on the water and we had a lovely tour of the bay. Our goal is to go on this sail every time we're in the...continued

Lovely day on the Bay. Mellow sailboat ride with beautiful views. They didn't sail as close to the Golden Gate Bridge or Sausalito as I had expected, staying closer to the middle of the Bay. They serve wine and beer as soon as the boat leaves...continued

We happened to hit a very good day. It can be foggy and choppy in the summer. The boat was fine, and we really enjoyed it.

Staff was extremely friendly, answered all questions and informative. If you have any back problems...you may want to bring a small cushion. Although, it was a beautiful day and a warm day for SF definitely layer because it is cooler once you're...

This was cancelled due to the SF weather. The host said I have to call Goldstar to pick another date.

Very windy - shocked that life jackets were not passed out and required. Sailing on the Bay without life vest is just plain dumb.

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

What a perfect adventure on the SF Bay. The crew were very professional and informative and the boat ("Privateer") was well-maintained and comfortable. The complimentary Chardonnay wine was very tasty and well-chosen by the crew.

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!
