We’d love to hear from you.
We had a great time and our compliments to you and the rest of the crew. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Your ability to maneuver the boat smoothly though the bay currents while keeping everything level and on the table was amazing. One guest had never been on the bay before and another had never been on the bay in a private boat. Both guests where impressed with the different sites and beauty of cruising around the bay. Smooth sailing to you and the crew.
Many, many thanks for your kindness and the excellent tour last Saturday. We had really the best tour ever while in the United States. The two extra guys who came with us thoroughly enjoyed the tour too.
Once again, many thanks.

Please extend our heartfelt thanks to all of your staff for the greatest party we could’ve asked for last Friday night. Everyone… remarked at how smooth everything went that evening. Clearly you are experts in what you do. The kids loved the boat, the food and the music. Tori is still over the moon about it all. We all can’t wait for the pictures….

Thanks for everything. Everyone really had a great time aboard the Journey. It was everything we imagined it could be to start off our company sales meeting.
The boat, the food, the crew and tour around the bay were terrific. We’ll look for another good reason to take a tour aboard the Journey next year.

Recently booked the Journey for 20 guests for an evening out on the water. It was very simple to book and plan…clear and concise! Mostly done by emails. The yacht is surprisingly spacious for being a 40 foot!! Lots of fun. The staff was super friendly. The chef was wonderful and ALL the food was superb!!! I was afraid it would be a trade off and would be disappointed with the food, but I was pleasantly surprised!! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you guys

Birthday Party 3/26/11
Absolutely loved it!! My boyfriend surprised me for Birthday, the weather was one of the most perfect days I’ve ever seen in SF, perfect and gorgeous. The crew made it so much fun – they were really laid-back and entertaining, it made for a great time. I can’t say enough about the experience, we will definitely be back.

Anniversary Dinner Cruise 5-29-11
We had a wonderful evening,
The crew was nice, the weather was great – I think we got the best day in several weeks. The yacht was a perfect size for our group and the food was fantastic. Our anniversary couldn’t have been any better.
Thanks for all your help!
A group of our friends and family chartered a yacht for the day from Bayview Charters. They were very helpful with deciding where we wanted to go for the day. it was very nice that we could make our schedule and not follow something already planned out. The crew were GREAT!!!!! super fun. they took us around the entire bay, and eat at a restaurant in Berkeley. The day was very relaxing and enjoyable! They were full of lots of information and willing to do whatever we wanted. It was tons of fun and the bartender even mixed us special drinks. They were constantly taking pictures for us and made sure our every need was taken care of. I would HIGHLY recommed taking this charter with these wonderful people, you won’t regret it!
Birthday Party 5/26/11
We had a great time on the Voyager, nice boat, nice bar and all around a nice Captain and crew. Once all the pricing and timing details were figured out everything else was a breeze. We showed up and the crew took care of everything from there. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to charter a large boat with 30+ people to use Bay View Yacht Charters. I can definitely see myself doing this again in the future.

Private tour 5/4/11
It was exactly what I was hoping it would be – wonderful! I hired Bay View Charters to take myself, my Dad (a Korean Vet) and a few others out to the Navy Reserve Fleet. The look on everyone’s faces when they step on board the boat was priceless. I think we were all expecting a converted fishing boat not a beautiful yacht. Howard was a great captain and Les was very helpful and informative – just the right amount of education and listening to my Dad’s Navy stories! It was a great start to a great day!
Hi – thanks to Captains Howard Williams and Charlie Wilson for an absolutely perfect day! My husband was the WWII USS Iowa veteran they escorted so kindly!
I’m no pro, but it was fun to capture scenes of the towing… Thanks for trying to keep the boat as still as possible for us photographers… I’m no good at holding still myself!
My husband, AC “Joe” Knadler, [was a] former crewmember of the USS Iowa while she was being built in Brooklyn and New York, and while she carried FDR. He was also on her during the action on Tuck…. 1942-44 are the years he served on her. He’ll be 90 March 28, 2012. We enjoyed ourselves greatly!
Just wanted to take a minute to let you know that we all had a great time. The Captain and crew were all very friendly and professional and, the food was fantastic. The weather could have been better but that was Mother Nature’s fault. It is definitely the best way to take in all of the views of San Francisco.
I’m very happy we chose Bay View Charters for our dinner cruise. Thanks for everything.

Re: July 15, 2011 Sail
OMG! It was amazing! Cap’t Chuck gave my son the wheel the moment we stepped on the Quixote. Then offered my husband all the time he wanted to steer and sail himself. The Captain gave suggestions about how to steer and never became panicked! Capt. Chuck created a warm, calm and relaxing environment that it made us “novice” sailors feel at ease. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Plus, he knew so much about the Bay waters and landmarks that it was like boating with a wise uncle….who was also relaxed, generous with his vessel…and kind. Captain Chuck e-mailed us a couple of times after the trip to check on how we thought things went. It’s was the highlight of our entire vacation. We will absolutely go again!

The cruise was fantastic! Your team members are wonderful! The captain was great. The boat was amazing and if we have our event in SF again next year, we’ll book the same boat! I’d recommend your company to anyone. Attached is the picture of our group.
