Our Captain and crew have decades of experience sailing and cruising our yachts throughout the San Francisco Bay/Delta and California coastline. Their expertise and qualifications extend beyond just piloting and navigation – they are also trained and certified in safety and both adult and pediatric first-aid techniques. 


    Your safety and comfort is their number one priority. At the helm and on deck, our crew is warm and welcoming, and very encouraging of passengers who would like to learn about the nuances of sailing and yachting. Hoisting the sails, navigation and watch, help at the helm… We know that for many people, learning is fun too! Despite their countless journeys across the waters, the Bay Lights crews bring an enthusiasm and joy of cruising with them on each trip they make, and it shows.
