The boat is large and stable with plenty of room for passengers. Our crew was great, ready to discuss sailing in general and quick to point out wildlife and noteworthy points of scenery. We had a fairly stiff breeze for our trip, and the boat cruised right along without much heeling (leaning). My wife is sometimes nervous on a sailboat with a lot of breeze, and she really enjoyed herself.

We call my husband "grouch" for good reason! his beloved Giants were on a downhill skid and he was not a happy camper....till we boarded a catamaran with the SF Bay Sailing company! we listened to instructions from the bearded captain and had a couple of gals help us choose a good place to sit or stand...then we were off! My husband clung to the bow of the boat and he was suddenly transformed into Jack at the front of the Titanic, or even a pirate looking for treasure! he smiled the entire time, a strange sight for those of us who know him..and then a strange sound errupted-he was laughing! it was the highlight of our trip! The crew were helpful and outgoing and the Captain even let my nephew steer the boat. We have been to the City many times, but this was a new experience for us...I will recommend this to everyone I know! I am horrible with names, but the gal with the Aussie accent was awesome! Love,love,loved it!
