Extremely fun boat ride! Captain Charles was friendly, helpful, and great! Thanks Caption Charles.
We had a great time. The ride was fun and exciting. The information about the history of San Francisco was much better than the information we listened to on one of the canned sound recordings that gets played on the tour buses . . . . GREAT JOB!!! Thanks!!!
Great tour. Highlight of our trip.
This was the most fun I've had in a long time!
We had a great time!
Captain Charles was very friendly, and gave a great tour around the Bay. He shared a lot of the historical information of the city, with some fun stories to keep everyone entertained. The highlight was seeing a small tiger shark do a back flip out of the water!
Touch of Gold was a great tour and loved our Captain, Captain Charles. Fun ride through the Bay on a powerful speedboat, hang on, you'll get some spray, and learn a lot about San Francisco in the process. Highly recommended.
An experience for those seeking a fun ride and great views. Captain Charles provides a great tour and gives you a zippy wave jumping ride. My two teen boys enjoyed it a lot. I really enjoyed the ride under the Golden Gate Bridge and the great narration by Captain Charles. I would definitely recommend.
My Team and I at Gonzales Dental care were Extremely Satisfied with The Bay Voyager. Charles was Awesome and accommodated our needs. We drove a long distance to get there and every minute was worth it, from our ride under the Golden gate to behind the At&T park, Great experience and glad we chose them for our office trip. We will definitely be back soon!
Captain Charles was very helpful and informative in all aspects and made sure the needs of the passengers were met. The boat was comfortable enough, and the engine was surprisingly quiet. I could clearly hear Charles despite sitting near the front. The information was interesting and it wasn't overdone. Weather gear was of good quality. No complaints. My family was very pleased and I could see us all going again.
Alcatraz portion too short. It would have been great to go around Alcatraz island and heard more about it.
Small group very intimate. Before going wife and son were a little apprehensive about going out on the bay in a small vessel. Captain Charles made them feel very safe and secure. The boat ride was simply amazing! When it first started, they Golden Gate was covered in fog. Captain Charles decided to reverse the tour so we ended at the Golden Gate to give the fog a chance to clear up. He knew his stuff! By the time we made it back, the fog was gone and we made it all the way there. We went and saw all the top sites around the bay and his knowledge and insight made this adventure definitely worth repeating. If you get the time make sure you take this tour. Worth EVERY PENNY!!!
A fun ride with lots of interesting information about the city and its surroundings. And a chance to go really close to the sights.
My husband found this tour online and we booked based on all the positive reviews. We also like to do things that are a bit adventurous and this seemed to fit the bill. This bay tour was fantastic! Captain Charles was extremely friendly, knowledgable and funny! He had great stories to tell and I learned a lot about SFO. We got to see so much more of the city than we could have on foot and it was a lot more fun than walking or riding on a bus or ferry. We had a blast zooming across the Bay! Highly recommend Bay Voyager tours - a must do in SFO!
I really enjoyed this trip. Great fun!
Was a great way to see the city. He was very knowledgeable found out things I never knew and I've been to city many times.
This was a perfect outing with our Community Outreach Team! Our guide fantastic fun and informative even if I am a native San Franciscan. I will definitely want to come back with friends on a sunny day again. Thank you! Sharon T.
Great way to see the Bay! Very interesting and entertaining!
Awesome experience. A must do while in San Francisco
we had a wonderful birthday celebration with Charles on the Bay. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting the city. It is unique and differrent !
Captain Charles was knowledgeable and interesting. It's a great boat and a wonderful experience
A super trip, with a great and fun captain. Besides just getting out on the water and enjoying the speedy cruise, the captain shared a lot of knowledge about San Francisco and the history of its waterfront. Highly recommended!
Great ride and stories. Unique experience!
Best money spent on a boat ride. Great sights good Guide info and a ton of fun
I loved this experience. Charles is an awesome person and he knows everything about the bay that you need to know. I was very excited about this experience. We even had little kids on the boat and they loved it. Will definitely do this again.
Charles made signing up so easy for us and really gave confidence that we were going to have a very personalized experience. We treated our adult son and three of his friends and they were thrilled too.
The tour was absolutely amazing. The experience was so much more than what we were expecting. We plan on doing another trip with captain Charles. I would recommend that anybody coming to San Francisco do this trip. Was worth every penny.
This is my second trip and definitely not my last. Both friends said it was amazing. I've taken many boat rides on the bay and this is by far my favorite! Every trip is a bit different. The weather changes (windy and rocky was THE BEST) as we see slightly different sights each time. Nothing beats flying through the waves under the GG Bridge like that! I seriously laugh the entire time. I could do this every single week and never get sick of it. Can't wait for my next trip!
All the details of our boat adventure with Charles Jennings were spectacular. His pre-trip preparations and communications, the added features unique to our excursion, and all of the fascinating information, stories, and color he provided during the trip made the experience extremely enjoyable for all members of our party. We all recommend Bay Voyager "A Touch of Gold" trip very highly.
It was my child's birthday at first I was not too sure about him being to little for that but honestly he was super excited.we loved that little piece of gold!!! Totally recommended.
The tour was fantastic and a lot of fun. The captain, Charlie, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, accomodating, and professional. Everyone I was with had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed cruising around the bay while the captain indulged us with a great deal of historical information regarding the city of San Francisco and the various aspects the bay. Additionally, Charlie shared with us several entertaining personal stories that he, himself, experienced that tie in with the history of the San Francisco bay. I highlly reccommend the Bay Voyager tour for anyone who is looking for a fun and enlightening experience, not only for visitors of the city but also for current residents of the great city of San Francisco.
It was a great experience, I saw San Francisco in a fun and different way, I really, really, really like it!!
We had a great time and felt we saw sights we would not have otherwise seen on other trips on offer from the Wharf.
Peek managed to not relay our booking to Bay Voyager, but Captain Charles more than made up for the glitch (that wasn't even his fault) with the best tour I've ever been on. A tremendous experience from start to finish. Only complaint has to do with Peek - I wish you would include stuff like a booking reference/order # in your confirmation e-mails as the initial booking process made us quite uneasy about the seriousness of peek.com.
Everything about our Bay Voyager adventure exceeded expectations! Captain Charles is amazing and really made the trip special, from getting us outfitted to be warm and comfortable, to providing expert information and truly unique viewpoints. I've lived in San Francisco for the better part of 26 years, and learned so much! My family was in awe...especially being able to go right under the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges was incredible. Not something you get to do everyday and the views were spectacular. I can't recommend the trip highly enough. It's great for families and the kids absolutely loved it!
