Overview

Admire San Francisco and its surrounding sights from the water on a San Francisco Bay sailing cruise. Onboard a catamaran, sail past the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, legendary Alcatraz Island, and the hamlet of Sausalito. Take advantage of great photo ops while you soak up the sea breeze during this scenic tour.
  • Catamaran cruise on San Francisco Bay
  • Sail away from the city and take in the sights from the water
  • View Alcatraz Island and Sausalito
  • Cruise under the awe-inspiring Golden Gate Bridge
Don’t just take photos of San Francisco Bay from the waterfront—get out on the water itself pm this SF sailing tour. Your experience starts on the Embarcadero, where you hop aboard the 55- or 65-foot (17- or 20-meter) Adventure Cat and set out across the bay.

Take a picture or two of the city skyline and resident sea lions as they become smaller and smaller, and listen to commentary from your captain about the city and other sights that line the water.  If you want to stay warm and dry, you can enjoy 360-degree views from the catamaran’s protected interior; if you’re feeling a bit more daring, take a seat on the trampoline nets, where you can soak in the salty ocean air.

Cruise past Alcatraz Island, look up at the towering Golden Gate Bridge and admire the charming small town of Sausalito, just across the bridge. If you like, you can purchase snacks, beer, wine or soft drinks from the onboard bar.

Your tour ends when you return to the marina in San Francisco.

Wonderful and Wild

We took this cruise on a Thursday afternoon with choppy water and windy conditions. IT WAS A BLAST!! We were out an hour and a half, went by Alcatraz out to the Golden Gate Bridge, under it, onto the other side that most people don't see, and back past Alcatraz again, then back to the Pier. It was a great ride, exciting with the wild weather, which just made it better, and came to realize how big that Bay really is. Wonderful time, thank you!

Sailing on this Catamaran around the Bay was particularly fabulous and a great escape from our Sheltering In Place advisories. The Catamaran was intentionally filled with only 12 guests, for Social Distancing protections. Very thoughtful plan by the Crew. It was a windy somewhat overcast day, and so beautiful. Andrew was wonderful in offering to take photos of us so we can easily renew the pleasures of the trip! I highly recommend this to anyone! Thanks to the staff!!!

It was really wonderful. We had a great time. We didn't realize that we would go all the way around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge. It was just beautiful.

Sail Away

There are few things in life that equal being out on the water and letting the breeze (not mention a good captain) carry you away. This 90-minute catamaran cruise stripped away any work-related stress I had in me. It was my first visit to San Francisco, and it felt great to head out past the sea lions, past Alcatraz and on to the Golden Gate bridge. But just being out on the water, regardless of what we saw, was the best feeling of all, and I felt rejuvenated by the time the boat returned to dock. Many thanks for a great adventure.
