This is our 2nd trip and we have enjoyed each trip. Crew was great and with COVID restrictions, we appreciated the care and smaller passenger allotment. Looking forward to more trips. I will not try anyone else but SFSC and I even kept my 2017 emails from SFSC so I would not forget that awesome time

Our sunset tour of the Bay was fantastic. Boarding went smoothly, We sat up front in the boat, and It was exciting when the sail was hoisted, we dipped low, and we sailed over the waves. The view of the bay and Alcatraz Island was special. We dressed warmly with layered clothing and that paid off. It was a perfect evening.
