Words can’t describe how special this experience is. I surprised my boyfriend for our 5 year anniversary with a trip on the yacht, and from the minute we arrived at the marina, Captain Timothy was so kind and so hospitable. We met his wife, then boarded the yacht and were given a quick tour and a rundown on safety measures. He had a huge tray of snacks, hot water for coffee or hot chocolate, bottles water, la croissant, soda, etc. He even provided cuffs that prevented sea sickness as well as an incredibly cozy blanket and hand warmer to stay warm in the bay wind. He was an excellent captain, and took us through the bay, pointing out dolphins and sea lions along the way. We had lovely conversation about his yacht, his wife, their story, and how meaningful the yacht is to him. Towards the end we dropped anchor and were able to have a breathtaking panorama of the sunset, he disappeared for a moment then out of nowhere came back up to the deck with a beautiful cheese tray and a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary, which was so thoughtful and special. After the sunset we came back to the marina and were surprised yet again with a “Happy Anniversary” banner his wife Shannon had made for us. It was such a personable, beautiful, once in a lifetime experience and I’m so glad we did it. I highly recommend sailing with Captain Timothy to anyone and everyone!!!
