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!).

Snack on a few hors d’oeuvres and enjoy two provided drinks from the onboard bar 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.

Not worth ticket price at this time

They were not well organized, they hadn't updated their website with correct times and only running every hour. Not worth the cost at this time.

Amazing time!!

So much fun! The boat was limited to 12 people due to covid which worked out great, each group had their own corner of the boat — which was really nice & spacious. The staff was extremely friendly, chatting with us and explaining different cites around the bay, offering to take photos of each group. The waters were a bit bumpy on our way out, but it was such a beautiful ride! I’d love to do it again!! The sea lions were fun too! The dock is by the sea lions so we had to walk by the animal— THRILLING!! Drinks were available on board as well!

Need details updated as no complimentary drink and finger buffet
Fabrice_Landragin

Whilst the sailing itself was excellent, the trip details were not up to date and did not highlight the fact that there was no complimentary drink and finger buffet. As I understand the current environment, I called the company the day before to confirm the details and was informed that indeed a complimentary drink and a light buffet would be served - somehow very disappointing for the price I paid.

Great cruise of the Bay. We were on the first sail since the shut down in March and only 12 people aboard. The weather was the only aspect that wasn’t perfect, maybe a glass of wine but that’s understandable given covid concerns and city ordinances. Highly recommended if you can make it.
