this was our 30th anniversary trip ..... the 4 hour sail on the Wild Streak. Captain Chuck delivered a great day sailing on the Bay, sailing under the bridge, telling us all about the area. I am sure Chuck has sailed this area more than he can remember but seemed to enjoy himself as much as we did. if you... More

I just realized that I forgot to write this review! Apologies, after a tour with captain chuck my girlfriend and I started planning a wedding! Woot woot! He is by far the nicest and kindest captain you will ever meet. He is incredibly patient, even when you are absolutely nervous and about to pop the question! He is fun, easy... More

All of the reviews are 100% accurate. Sailing with captain Chuck on the Wild Streak was great! Out of all of our sight seeing and excursions during our San Francisco/Sausalito vacation, this was hands down the favorite of everyone in our family. I will never forget the smiles of our grown kids while they were behind the wheel of the... More

Fantastic sailing experience on San Francisco Bay with Captain Chuck's Charters of Sausalito, CA. We established a great relationship and love of sailing from the pre- sail orientation. I shared that I have sailed since a young age and had a sloop in Dallas years ago, so, he let me take his 36 foot sloop out and I didn't sit... More

Wonderful! This is nothing like those tours from San Francisco. We booked the 3 hour tour for my husband's birthday. Since there were six of us, we had one of their smaller boats all to ourselves. Plenty of room for all of us to sit on the deck or below. Plenty of snacks were provided, wine, soda, cheese, crackers and... More

We had a wonderful time sailing with Captain Chuck on the 36 foot Wild Streak. We were 3 couples and the boat size was perfect. This was the first time on a sailboat for half of our group so he took that into consideration when deciding how fast to sail the waters. Captain Chuck is professional, easy to talk with... More

Last minute I decided to get on Captain Chuck's Charter. I initially passed by and heard the guy announce a scenic 1-hour boat tour that took you around Alactraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge for only $15. After wandering around Fisherman Wharf, I found other tours that cost somewhere between $26-$45 that didn't take you anywhere. Walking back the... More

We are a family of sailors from east coast. We chartered a 49' Hunter sailboat for a family of 4 people for 4 hours during our recent trip to San Francisco during thanksgiving week. This charter was the highlight of our vacation. Excellent service, pickup was prompt. Captain Bobby and Crewmate Rod were very knowledgable about their ship, the entire... More

Our family did the 2 hour Sunset Tour in early August, and we had a perfect night, just abit of breeze and some wonderful colors of clouds, sunset and the Golden Gate bridge not hidden by fog.

Our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed Captain Chuck's hospitality and his experience on the water. He was very easy to be with and encouraged us to help out with sailing the boat. The wind was a little high which prohibited us from sailing under the Golden Gate but we had BIG fun sailing around the less choppy parts of the... More
