Take a three hour tour of Bodega Bay on our 33' sailboat. A licensed boat captain takes you from the Harbour out to the Bay and then the open ocean. All ages welcome, everyone wears a life jacket - fun!

We really enjoyed our day of sailing Bodega Bay. Captain Rich entertained us with interesting and funny stories and showed us the local wildlife including a gray whale!

We had a nice time with Captain Rich. He took us to see the sea lions and harbor seals and was very knowledgable about the local fauna. We enjoyed being out on the boat.
