We had a great time on our excursion! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed getting to participate in sail handling and a bit of time on the helm. The boat is a modern engineering marvel, and something to behold. Highly recommended for experienced sailors and novices, alike!
Great sailing

Had a fantastic day sailing. Skipper John, crew Sean and I unfortunately can’t remember the other gentleman’s name, sorry, were great and very informative and helpful. The weather was all we could wish for, a good breeze and sunny. Yes it was cold but everyone expected than and dressed accordingly. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend it to anyone.

I stayed back 2 days in SFO for this and it was absolutely worth it - as I am a sailing enthusiast. the boat is 90 feet of beauty and moves unbelievably smooth and fast. The crew was extremely encouraging and involved the guest in several activities starting from rigging the boat to allowing everyone to take the wheel helm . They had some lovely jackets on board for those who were ill prepared - though the booking form clearly said that a jacket wouldbe necessay. We were fortunate to see baby Porpiose jumping along side the boat for a short distance. the route was pretty scenic, going past Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge offering a good optional view of the SFO skyline.

If you love sailing this is for you. Sailed around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge, we were even lucky enough to see whales and dolphins! Must do especially during whale watching season.

What a blast! We got to see the bay from a previously unknown angle. We had never been on a sailboat before but the crew allowed us to adapt to the experience and slowly pulled us into it. During the 2 hour sail, we saw the entire bay including cruising past Alcatraz and sailing under the GG Bridge. We saw whales, sea lions, and dolphins. Everyone 20 people got to take turns at hoisting and moving the sails and driving the boat - you get a chance to experience what it must feel like to be on an America's Cup team while still knowing that if we do something boneheaded we're still safe, thanks to the expert crew. Thanks guys - we will be back!
This tour was awesome! Great crew...

Amazing trip! We had a fantastic time on the SF Bay with the very best crew onboard the USA76. We are a family of 4 kids are 5 and 9. They were very welcome abord and were supplied with lifevests and jackets. The weather was windy and gray, but it was still a great time, around Alcatraz, under Golden Gate and the SF harbour. We can recommend this trip BIG TIME. When we get to SF again, we are def looking these guys up again!
