Everything was great! Everybody was happy! Only one thing put in your advertisement request to take shoes off when you are going on board. Some people weren’t prepared for that

This was such a great experience! The captain was very personable and knowledgeable about the area! We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend taking this tour! 10/10!

Captain Max was AWESOME. Great conversation and a great first sailing experience for all. No sea sickness, lots of learning, and even saw some sea lions. Highly recommend!

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the neighborhood where we hiked and also had some interesting stories from his own experience of the area.

Absolutely loved this tour! We ended up getting a private tour because it wasn’t a busy day! We were thoroughly entertained and got some beautiful pictures!
