Charter Tips

About Us

Hello and Welcome was started in 1993 during a picnic on an island off the coast of Friendship, Maine. Today we know a whole lot about chartering on the bay. We have seen boats come and go and know each boat’s strong and weak points. We have organized over 1500 events on San Francisco bay and want to demonstrate our services to you to help design a cruise that will meet your individual vision. We can organize corporate events, private social functions, weddings, tour operator tours, incentive rewards, fantastic Angel Island BBQs, religious events and just about anything else you can imagine for from two to two thousand guests.

So please let us know your event goals, your ideas and dreams. We want to work with you to make your event come true on a San Francisco Bay yacht charter. Whether you are a professional corporate event planner, a bride to be or anything in between use this website to research your event. Contact us and we will help you design and plan all the details for a truly memorable Five Star San Francisco Bay Yacht Charter.
