Chae Guillot has been with Blue & Gold Fleet for eight years, the last four as a Captain. She says as Captain, she most enjoys handling and maneuvering the ships through the San Francisco Bay. Chae’s favorite moment as Captain so far was her first sail, a ferry service on the Oski boat to Sausalito. It was a moment she doesn’t think she will ever forget! 

Outside of work, Chae enjoys being outdoors, especially going camping and snowboarding. Chae recently spoke about her experience as a Captain for Blue & Gold Fleet at the Maritime Academy Conference, prompting the San Francisco Bar Pilot Association to invite Chae to the upcoming 2018 Maritime Ball as their guest. This year, they are honoring women in Maritime and she is very excited to attend!  You too can experience the sights Chae sees everyday by booking a Bay Cruise Adventure, Escape From the Rock Tour, a ride on the RocketBoat or a ferry ride to Sausalito, Tiburon or Angel Island with Blue & Gold Fleet.
