Avoid the queues for the cable car and take the F line tram which goes from Castro all the way down Market and them along Embarcadero to Pier 39. Same in reverse. $2.25 each way. Have exact fare ready.

I tipped $5 total for two white wines. It was cheap wine out of paper cups after all. (It's obviously a safety thing).

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.
