Top boat rental and water experiences to try in Sausalito
Poised on the San Francisco Bay at the northern end of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito has been by turns the home of several bootleggers’ operations during Prohibition, a shipbuilding center during World War II, and has now assumed a new identity as a haven for artists, as well as a charming residential district and boater’s paradise. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate, but the brisk breezes off of the Bay help keep it cool and fresh year round.

Captain Timothy is the man! His boat is cozy, comfortable, clean and well-stocked with all the amenities. Timothy himself is a consummate host, courteous, professional and welcoming. We over-estimated traffic and arrived early. He said "No problem, let's just get underway early!" We will definitely do this again :)
Captain Tim skippered a marvelously smooth & delightful tour of the Bay on a Thanksgiving weekend. He is indeed a gentleman yachtsman from his conviviality to his extensive knowledge of the Bay - all so generously shared. The Shanutski is so beautifully, tastefully and comfortably appointed with everything one could possibly need or want. We were cozy, safe and secure. An enjoyable outing for all! The Shanutski & Captain Tim are highly recommended.
My now fiance and I couldn't have been more pleased with this booking. Tim, the owner/captain, really went out of his way to make us feel comfortable before, during, and after the trip. I communicated a few days before the day of the trip about my plan to propose to my girlfriend. He was all over it even sending us videos and GoPro footage he took of me getting down on one knee! When we were gone on our trip Tim's wife even made a "Congratulations" sign and hung it up on the dock and made a small paper flower bouquet for our return. Boat was clean, plenty or seating areas in and out of the sun on his boat as well as a cozy indoor living area with all the amenities. Honestly though, Tim made our trip. Thanks Tim! 5 stars from us.
Our group had the time of our lives with Captain Pam on "Glory Days"! Even though it was cold, windy, and rainy during our trip, we enjoyed every bit of it. We ordered a catering package for our trip, and it was prepared very neatly below deck. I highly recommend booking with Captain Pam if you're wanting a fun and adventurous experience!
We had a super trip from Sausalito today. Communication prior to our trip was really clear, the boat was fantastic, and Captain Pam was a great skipper and knowledgeable guide. We were 12 adults and 3 toddlers and the boat was a perfect size, and the toddlers were very safe. Recommended
I highly recommend booking with Timothy. Not only because his boat is beautiful and relaxing but because he was a great captain. Very welcoming, professional with a sense of humor and treats you as the boat is yours. You definitely would not regret it.
