Bay View Charters is a unique charter company for many reasons. At Bay View Yacht Charters you can find private yacht charter boats for any special event or occasion be it a dinner cruise, Christmas cruise or your anniversary party. One of the most spacious private yacht charter boats in our available fleet of charter boats is the 30-passenger vessel, Journey.

The M.V. Journey began her relationship with us as a USCG-certified 40-foot motor yacht. As such, her size, accommodation and appointments are unlike the other private yacht charter boats in the San Francisco Bay. The distinction becomes apparent as soon as you step aboard this charter boat. This private yacht charter boat features a full galley, lounge, dining area with panoramic view, open bow and full service bar/lounge. The rich teakwood accents the interior creating an atmosphere fit for all occasions like Christmas, birthday parties, a New Year party, Anniversary party or any other special occasion.

Available Yachts For Charter

We offer 40-100 ft yacht rentals for your groups of 2 – 149 people. Below are some of the available boats.

Corporate Yacht Charters

For a business meeting or entertainment purposes, chartering a corporate yacht can fulfill several needs at once. A corporate yacht charter is uncrowded and private, has all the amenities one would expect, and when the ‘business of business’ is complete, serves as a reward to all those in attendance.

Show potential clients the true nature of this beautiful area–most often unseen from drives along congested freeways and downtown facilities. Reward employees for their hard work. The flexibility and freedom of a private corporate charter cruise aboard a yacht allows you to provide an experience that people of many different interests will enjoy.

For a lot less than you might think, you can charter a private yacht for sightseeing, business, a corporate event, special occasion or party trip on the San Francisco Bay, one of the most scenic areas of the world. You can plan time for stops at bayside restaurants, take along a picnic lunch or dinner for enjoyment on Angel Island or any of many other beautiful spots around the bay, or you can eat on board in our full galley and lounge.bayview (2)

  • Client Entertaining: Entertain your clients, on a private corporate yacht charter cruise. Dinner, lunch, cocktails and/or hors d’oeuvres, a way of saying ‘thank you’ for their business. Traveling to San Francisco is no longer necessary to entertain on the water. Departures can be arranged from Vallejo or Martinez in addition to the San Francisco Bay.


  • Company Meetings: Chartering a private corporate yacht charter cruise is the perfect way to conduct a corporate meeting without the interruptions. Complete your business in half the time and enjoy lunch, dinner, cocktails and/or hors d’oeuvres before returning to the office.


  • Sales Incentives: Show your appreciation for a job well done. Provide dinner, lunch, cocktails and more for their own private corporate cruise.


  • Dinner Cruises & Company Events: Enjoy the comfort on board any of the private corporate yacht charters, including a lounge with bar, dining area with a panoramic view, and an open bow.

San Francisco Bay Tours

Yacht Charter and Dinner Cruise

Why wait in line to buy a ticket, then wait in line again for the scheduled departure time of a crowded tour boat, only to take a short trip around only the inner part of the San Francisco Bay…the same trip each time?

Instead, you and your guests can set your own schedule, cruise agenda and pace. Visit the many beautiful spots on the bay that the tourist boats miss, and relax in your own private San Francisco bay dinner cruise. We know all the great places around the bay…places that the tourists usually never find out about. Let us be your host and guide. If you wish to stay a while in one place or another, or to change your plans, just let the captain of your San Francisco  dinner cruise know. For example, you might wish to slow down or stop to take photos, or to walk around onshore a while, in order to shop or sightsee.

Sacramento River Cruise

The Sacramento River Delta is world famous for its miles and miles of un-crowded waterways. Snaking through the San Joaquin River Valley, the Delta is home to a thriving water community, with many marinas, restaurants, bars and recreation areas.

Whether you choice is water skiing, jet skis, fishing, houseboating or just sightseeing your way through one of America’s richest farming areas, there is something in the Delta for every one. And taking this ride on a Sacramento River cruise adds up to the fun.
