Customer comments

  Thanks again!! I will always remember that day, it was very special. I could literally feel my blood pressure drop!! :-)

Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail and let you know how much we enjoyed our sailing trip last Saturday. It was a such a fabulous experience, and you made it so much fun. My mother is still talking about it!

Thanks so much, and we hope to sail with you again soon!

If you want to SAIL on the amazing SF bay, booking Jonathan and his boat for a trip is a great option. By "sailing" I don't mean a frilly cruise where you float around while you do things you might as well do on land: I mean there's wind in your hair, salt on your tongue, sea smell in your nose, gust on your cheek, wheel in your hand. The REAL kind of sailing!

Deposit requirements

Please note that a deposit is required to hold your reservation. You should still contact me first regarding the specific cruise or charter and you will be placed on the list. Sending in a deposit without first signing up means that I'll be one step closer to retirement. ;-)

I'll let you know the specifics of the deposit amount after we settle on the date.

You can now send in your deposit online with a Visa or Mastercard! If you'd like to do this, click on the following button. This is a secure transaction.

Here's how it works...
  1. Click on the PayPal logo.
  2. Enter the amount of the payment.
  3. Log in to your PayPal account.
  4. Click the Send money to friends and family tab.
If you'd rather send me a check, let me know and I'll tell you how.

Canceling or not showing up

If you need to cancel, please let me know at least two weeks in advance. (I'd prefer even more notice, if possible.) Anything less will mean that you'll possibly lose your deposit. Emergencies come up. Let me know if that happens. If I cancel (for whatever reason), I will refund your deposit. Light rain doesn't necessarily mean the cruise or charter is cancelled, so please show up or call me and let me decide.

I may have to postpone the cruise or charter due to special circumstances. Depending on your situation, I may offer a refund of some or all of your deposit.
