My husband and I had such a great time sailing around the Bay with Rich and LAUGHING. We saw whales and sea lions, got to steer the sailboat - it was fabulous. Rich is very laid back, very cool, and showed us a great three hours that we'll remember forever. If you're considering a sail, we say Go For It!

My girlfriend and I did an afternoon sail around the bay and absolutely loved it! We saw tons and seals and sea lions plus the view of the bay itself is just spectacular. Captain Rich is super hilarious and makes it quite a memorable experience! Be sure to bring a couple of drinks, your sunglasses, a jacket and enjoy!

My wife and I booked a morning trip while on our honeymoon. The weather was perfect and the bay way like a sheet of glass. We plan to do the sunset tour when we return for our anniversary!

Rich is a fun loving sailing enthusiast. We had a great time, despite the rather chilly weather. Felt safe the whole time.

The trip with Captain Rich "Sparrow" Crumley was great fun. We were lucky to have a glorious, sunny day for our three-hour morning trip, and had a terrific time touring the bay, harbor, and ocean. We laughed a ton, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

My husband and I had a lovely weekend sailing trip this weekend at 10 in the morning. The weather was perfect and the sea was pretty smooth. Not only is Rich an avid sailor, but he's also quite the comedian. We had a great time.

My husband & I booked the 3 hour morning tour with Rich and had a great time. Rich is extremely personable and very knowledgeable about the area. We saw lots of sea lions but no whales unfortunately although Rich gave it his best effort to scout them out. I would highly recommend this sailing trip!

Wonderful experience! My wife and I booked the 3 hour Sunset tour out of Bodega Bay as a part of our anniversary weekend. Rich was a great host and guide, knowledgeable and entertaining, answered all our questions and let me actually run the tiller for a bit which was very thrilling for this sailing novice. We saw lots of wildlife... More
