“Cheerio mates! I’m Nick, your friendly English skipper. I am a USCG Master licensed captain. I grew up around boats back in England and have always loved being on the water. I’ve worked as a dive guide/instructor at scuba diving companies in the Caribbean and back in the UK and have owned my present boat in Sausalito for the last 10 years. Originally from England, I’ve lived in San Francisco and Sausalito for 18 years. My aim is to give you the most fun you can have out on the water in the San Francisco Bay while being safe. I’m also a professional photographer so I can incorporate a photo shoot with the booking so you can have some professional family/portrait or event photos from your day out! The boat is a Boston Whaler 255 Conquest which is a great boat for the San Francisco Bay and Coast. Give me a call and we can chat about how you would like to spend the perfect day out on the water!”

We had a great time with Nick on his boat. Communication with Nick was perfect starting right from the time of booking. Nick was very friendly and great to talk to. He was very knowledgeable about the Bay as well. Highly recommend making a booking with Nick for your day out on the Bay.
Absolutely the best rental experience so far with boatbound! I've been a repeat customer for years using BB and I must say that a Nick and his Whaler are as good as it gets. Great customer service, friendly, fun, and his whaler is perfect for any and all activities here on our bay waters. Will be renting again!
My experience with Nick was excellent. It started with great communication to set my expectations and plans. I was able to communicated directly with Nick leading up to my arrival at the dock. He was flexible so that unexpected minor delays on my end did not disrupt the outing. Once underway, Nick continued to focus on making my trip as good as possible. He was very pleasant and easy to get along with.
I wish my airline and car rental experience was half as good.
I had a great time aboard Nick's Boston Whaler! I hired him to motor my cameraman and I around the Bay as we filmed shots for a short documentary. Nick is an expert captain who knows these waters very well. I highly recommend him to anyone in the production world or better yet, anyone who wants to a fun day out on the bay. Thank you Nick!!!
Our group had an amazing time! It was a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and the trip was perfect. We met Nick and he showed us some beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge that not many tourists get to see. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone looking to see some amazing views! Thanks Nick!
We booked with Nick for four people and had an amazing trip. Nick is professional and very safe. But he is also very accommodating and will pretty much go wherever you want. For our trip, we wanted to see the whales that are currently under the Golden Gate Bridge. And boy did Nick (and nature) deliver. We were able to see a number of whales and they even did some breaching for us. I would definitely book with Nick again. It was like having your own boat but not having to worry about driving, docking, and safety issues. Nick is easy going and willing to answer any questions and was super nice. We had an absolute blast.
We had a fantastic tour with Nick this weekend. Saw several dozen whales over the day long trip. Nick knew how to mix in whale watching, fishing and sightseeing. The boat was well maintained and easy to use for our group. Very nice marina too. Highly recommend this captain and boat.
Nick was professional and personable. Leading up to our trip, our communications were prompt and the trip was on schedule. We drove from Sausalito to Angel Island with a group of five and had a blast. The boat was clean and in great condition and there was a large cooler for drinks as well as lifejackets. We felt safe the entire time and it was good to know that Nick had 10+ years of experience with his boat and the waters. It was also great to get to know Nick as a person as he had good stories to contribute to the conversation. Happy to recommend Nick and would be happy to go for round two. Thanks!
