We took the cruise as part of a release celebration. It was real fun to be out on the water. The route took us from Sausalito, under the golden gate bridge, all the way around Alcatraz, under the bay bridge and back to Sausalito. Capt Kirk and his crew seemed like experienced sailors in these waters and knew a lot... More

This was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco . Great sail down the bay and out to the Pacific under the Golden Gate Bridge. Captain Doug is quite the mariner and also very knowledgeable about local history and geology. If we had the time I would book another sail with company on one of their larger yachts. The... More

Our small office of 17 chartered a sail with Capt. Kirk and his crew. We sailed out from The Embarcadero, San Francisco + enjoyed the loveliest day on Angel Island. We were offered wine, beer or soda for the sail out to Angel Island. Some more of Kirk's friendly crew were waiting to meet us at Angel Island. They had... More

WE spent a wonderful afternoon on the Bay with Capt. Dogen. He was very knowledgable about the Bay, an excellent sailor, and he even let me take the wheel. Thrilling day!! Highly recommended!!

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband's birthday sailing on the Bay and watching the sunset over the city. We sailed on the Osprey from Oakland with Captain Doggan and his crew. All of which were polite, friendly and helpful. From the very beginning they made this a very special event and as the sunset, the crew bought out... More

The views that Captain Dogen takes you through are incredible and unforgettable, especially when we got to sail under the Golden Gate bridge! He was so knowledgable about San Francisco and told us a lot about the major sites and other islands. Sailing with Captain Dogen while drinking wine, snacking on cheeses, and feeling the fresh breeze on your face... More

If I could give Captain Kirk's and their entire team 6 stars, I would. I proposed to my girlfriend of 5 years last week on the 50ft Osprey, and the experience exceeded my expectations and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I booked the Osprey only a week in advance and their team of Susan and Allison were extremely... More

Eight of us joined Capt.Andy at pier 40 at 2:30 for a great sail out past Alcatraz, headed for the Golden Gate. The Osprey was 50 footer with plenty of room for all. We had six teenage boys (18-22) and when the first mate started serving great sandwiches and beverages they were in happy sailors for sure. Capt. Andy offered... More

This was the first time our team was meeting together as a group, and it was truly an unforgettable experience. Captain Dogen was very personable and professional, and ensured that everyone had a wonderful time. I would recommend this as a must-do during a visit to San Francisco.
