Had a great experience. Beautiful weather, had the good fortune to see at least three whales close up. Captain was super knowledgeable about the local history and had a great attitude. Also got lucky and we were able to view a few naval vessels that had come in early for fleet week. Want to go again and would recommend to anyone. Oh also got to a pretty sweet view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz!
My coworkers and I decided to take the Bay Voyager cruise for our company team outing and we were all so glad we did. It was the best bay cruise (if you can call it that because it was so much more) that I've ever taken. A perfect mix between bay cruise, speed boat, and history lesson about San Francisco and its cast of characters. Captain Charles was so knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating and you could tell that he truly loves what he does. Next time I have have friends or family in town, this is the first tour I'll recommend to them!
