Our Story

BAE BOATS was created out of a love for travel and adventure. Like many families during the pandemic the owners, Robyn and Logan, were looking for creative ways to seek adventure with their three children. After months of exploring Bay Area hiking and biking trails, they discovered electric boats. They were instantly hooked.

BAE BOATS looks forward to welcoming you!

What Our Customers Say About Us

Loved every single minute!

We loved every single minute! I could not be more excited that Bae Boats has landed in the Bay! They were so accommodating and patiently answered all of my questions. Booking was incredibly easy and clear, parking, check-in, and launch were super smooth, and the boats are all beautiful. I can't speak highly enough of them and am so grateful to them for a wonderful day on the water. Thanks for letting us decorate our boat with balloons, too!

An absolute blast

We had an absolute blast! Staff is wonderful, helpful, and sweet. You can take your own food, your own music, etc. The boats are immaculate. Fun to pilot, and a great way to enjoy the Estuary. I'm looking forward to returning soon and often.

Strongly recommend!

We had rented an old Duffy boat for 2 hours at a reasonable price and we had a blast!😁 The boat was very easy to drive, but need to be careful when there are other boats around. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I'd strongly recommend this experience.

Lot of Fun and perfect for kids!

Bae boats is a great little operation, the boats are awesome, super easy to drive, hold a perfect group size of 10 people, it's a really fun time tooling around the oakland estuary. They run a great operation with friendly helpful staff. There is a deli of some kind nearby that can set you up with great charcuterie boxes, ask them about it. We will definitely do this again, it was a lot of fun and perfect for kids

A great experience

Great way to spend a Saturday morning! Wife surprised me with a rental of their boat and we had a great two hours as a family. Definitely coming back with some friends to spend an afternoon out on the water. Overall a great experience and worth whatever they charged my wife lol.

Such a blast

We had such a blast on this boat!! We brought some friends along as a fun social distance, outdoorsy birthday party, and cannot recommend it enough! The boat is plenty spacious, has an awesome speaker system, is fun to drive and goes the perfect cruising speed. We were able to cruise down to Fruitvale bridge, and back towards the large shipping vessels past Jack London. The owners were super friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely be back again!
