What you'll do

I offer a private water shuttle service. I will take up to six guests on a private excursion or a sunset cruise. We often enjoy seeing dolphins and nesting ospreys. Prices vary on the private excursions based on the number of guests and the duration of the trip.
Sunset cruises in the evening are also very popular. The sunset Cruise is from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm and is $300. If you want to book the sunset cruise you must use the private group booking. The time for the sunset Cruise varies as the time of sunset changes throughout the year. Due to covid 19 I am only doing sunset cruises and private excursions at this time.

This was a last minute trip that exceeded our expectations. Captain Earl brought us out to see the sunset, but we ended with a private dolphin tour and the sunset! He really paid attention to what peaked our interested and brought us to see it! Amazing night on the water! Would highly recommend this experience.

We had a wonderful trip on our sunset cruise. Being out on a boat is always a good time, and Earl made it more fun. He pointed out nesting osprey and other interesting points of interest. My teens had wonderful time watching the scenery and having Earl explain what we were seeing. Definitely would/will do again and recommend!

Earl was a great host! He knew the Bay Area really well and took us to multiple locations. We were even lucky enough to see dolphins up close! He was a very relaxed host and allowed us to bring our own beverages on board. The weather was perfect for our sunset cruise, and he made it very comfortable with bean bags at the bow of the boat.

Great experience! Earl was a wonderful, knowledgeable host. He showed us the local wildlife, around the islands and we had a great sunset -> moonlight ride back to the dock. Highly recommend.

Our family had a wonderful time on the sunset cruise. Earl is very knowledgeable about the area and brought us to some beautiful spots we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. He even managed to find some dolphins despite the choppy water making it a challenge that evening. We highly recommend!
