Sailing San Francisco Bay for over 25 Years

San Francisco Yacht charters on a custom yacht with an experienced captain. The captains at Captain Kirk San Francisco Sailing have many years of experience and an accumulation of over 200,000 ocean miles.


Let us show you the beauty and thrill of a San Francisco Sailing Charter.  ‘Flying Tiger,’ ‘Osprey,’ and ‘Bay Wolf’ are three

professionally- maintained yachts that sail very well in all conditions. 


We do pickups in San Francisco, Sausalito or Oakland with easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Angel Island and the San Francisco waterfront.  Each trip can be as exciting, relaxing or romantic as you want.
