Total fraud - this guy cancels a couple hours before the booked trip. He offers a code to rebook. The code doesnt work. I email, no response. I call, his line is always busy. How are people like Captain Bob allowed to operate???

Don't waste your time making arrangements with this guy, cause he probably won't follow through. I, my wife and two friends juggled our schedules so we could go to the Bay and enjoy this trip. We went down the day before and rented rooms in...More

We had a reservation for a 3-hour charter and Bob never showed up. We waited around for 45 minutes. Calls went to voicemail and emails were bounced back to us. Absolutely terrible.

This guy is a joke. Cancelled our trip 3 times in advance (maybe a days notice), one time while we were standing on the dock waiting for him. Now we can get a hold of him to get our money back or schedule another trip....More

We had a great day despite some gray cloudy skies and resin earlier in the day. Capt Bob was a great host and captain, low key and made the sail so relaxing. Would go again anytime and would love a sunny day next sail!

We purchased a voucher for a sailing tour for two via Zozi. Redeeming the voucher proved difficult enough with only very limited dates available, but we finally found a date that worked. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the dock on Saturday morning, only...More

We had a wonderful sailing trip with Captain Bob. It was very informal and was catered to what we wanted. It was only my husband and I - the other two who were booked didn't show - and we got to see the Blue Angels...More
