Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Enjoy a San Francisco catamaran tour during the peaceful evening hours on this sunset cruise, when the City by the Bay will dazzle you with its famous views and sights.

Board your 55- or 65-foot (17- or 20-meter) Adventure Cat on the Embarcadero, and take off across the water. Look for sea lions and other marine life as you head out into the bay, and settle yourself either inside the protected area with 360-degree views or on the canvas trampoline where you can truly experience the wind and salty air of the Pacific (bring layers!).

Take in the beauty as your captain takes you past the historical island prison of Alcatraz and on to the Golden Gate Bridge. Look up at the towering bridge as you sail underneath it, and admire the waterfront hamlet of Sausalito, just on the north side.

Your cruise ends when you return to the marina, from where you can continue your night out in San Francisco on your own.

This is an absolute must when visiting SF! Brought my 15 yr old for her first west coast trip and she fell in love. The crew was fabulous (Katrina and Hans). Knowledgeable, informative, and great with everyone on board. The weather could not have been more perfect. It gets chilly-dress appropriately. If the fee turns you off, I promise it is worth every penny! I will do it again for sure.

We had such a great time! Crew and captain were very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved sailing directly under the golden gate Bridge. The crew helped take pictures of everyone to ensure we all got great pictures to capture the moment. We also loved sailing close to Alcatraz. We watched movies about alcatraz prior to visiting so it was nice to see that as well. We got to move around the deck the entire trip and they even had coats for anyone to use. My daughter and I sat at the front of the deck and got sprayed with the water which we will be able to laugh at for years to come. Amazing experience! The hubby highly recommends as well.
