Frequently Asked Questions
We sail year-round and we do not hold a date without a deposit. In some cases, we book cruises two years in advance. In order to ensure your date, call right away!
Yes! We can provide “Captain to Marry” which means one of our Captains will perform the ceremony for your perfect nuptials. We can also provide the lucky couple a variety of vows to choose from and encourage them to add their own special touches with poems, songs, or a written passage.
The route taken depends on which port we depart from, cruise time, and conditions on the Bay. Typically we visit all the central bay land marks: from McCovey Cove under the Bay Bridge to the San Francisco Ferry Building, then cruising along the Embarcadero to view the sea lions at Pier 39, past Fisherman’s Wharf, out to the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz, and along Treasure Island.
We have 5 beautiful yachts to choose from, all of which can be rented by the hour or with food and beverage included. For full service events your guest count, choice of yacht, menu, and bar selections will determine your cost per person. Please contact one of our event planners to put together a package that will fit your budget.
Our 5 Luxury Yachts range from 65 to 124 feet with multiple levels, accommodating 10 to 400 guests.
Though we all love the great weather the Bay Area has to offer, if it does happens to rain the night of your event do not despair! Each of our venues has ample interior space to host the entire party inside the yacht.
Yes! We do amazing Cruises on New Year’s Eve, July 4th, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day. You can stay updated on our Instagram and Facebook for additional opportunities, such as, the Fleet Week, Sail GP, America’s Cup viewing and more!
We don’t have daily public dinner cruises, but you can join us on board for any of these special occasion cruises such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s day, 4th of July Fireworks Cruise, Halloween Party Cruise, SF Fleet Week & Air Show Cruise, or New Year’s Eve Fireworks Cruise. All events are listed under our “Social Events” page.
We serve many ports around the Bay, including Alameda, San Francisco (Pier 40, McCovey Cove, and the Ferry Building), Berkeley, Oakland (Jack London Square), Angel Island, Tiburon, Sausalito, Redwood City, and Cavallo Cove.
Our yachts cruise the protected waters of San Francisco Bay, not the Pacific Ocean. We understand that guests want to enjoy the excitement and adventure of being on a boat without feeling like it, while enjoying a delicious meal or dancing the night away. You will find our yachts are big and stable and not at all like most ordinary boat experiences. If needed, our Captains will find the calmest water available to ensure that your cruise is serene and enjoyable.
Our yachts can be chartered 24 hours a day. Please keep in mind that all normal Alcohol Beverage Control regulations apply on the water.
You are not on an ordinary boat, you are on a luxury yacht! Dressy or casual, you should look the part. A sweater or coat is always a good idea.
Our preferred vendor list provides you with several hotel options depending on which port you choose to cruise from.
You might find that we have a Cruise Director, Deckhand, Servers, and Bartenders all at your service! Your guest count will determine how many staff members are onboard, and as service is our first order, you will be well taken care of.
Of course! We are very kid-friendly. Sometimes the kids are able to visit with the Captain when possible! Please note, although our staff is always aware of where our guests are onboard, we will not babysit your children and expect that your children are well behaved and watched-over by an adult.
Dogs are family too! In special circumstances, we do allow dogs to attend the wedding party. Naturally, all service dogs are welcome.
