Experience the beauty of San francisco during a 1.5-hour catamaran cruise over San francisco bay. Sail away from bustling city and enjoy photo ops from the vantage point of the water. Youll coast past the city skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Sausalito. Enjoy panoramic views from inside or take a seat on the trampoline nets to heighten your adventure.

Know More about this tour

Make your way to the Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront along the Port of San francisco, where youll board the Adventure Cat and set sail on San francisco bay. Snap photos of a colony of grunting Sea lions as you depart along the spectacular San francisco city skyline.

The 55-foot (16.8-meter) or 65-foot (19.8-meter) catamaran offers 360-degree views from a protected area for those who prefer to stay sheltered from sea breezes. More adventurous travelers can settle on canvas trampoline nets to experience the bay up close and take in the unforgettable sights in the invigorating open air.

During your 1.5-hour sightseeing cruise, hear informative commentary from your captain. Sail by the iconic red spires of the Golden gate bridge and pass historic Alcatraz island, home to the Notorious penitentiary, en route to Sausalito.

Snacks and beer, wine and soft drinks are available for purchase at the onboard bar before you return to the Embarcadero.

    My boyfriend and I had a really great experience on this boat tour. We thought the staff was so friendly, happy to take pictures of all the guests at the landmarks, and the boat provided thick jackets for the insanely cold Bay winds! My only criticism is we didnt stop for a long enough period around the GG bridge to take pictures/ chill without the wind blowing at us full speed. I would recommend this tour for most anyone curious about a cursory cruise to the GG bridge and back!

    Super fun, laid back, and awesome crew. Great time for my wife and I and 3 boys. The views were beautiful and they did a good job of getting close to the sights.

    Epic cruise and terrific captains / staff. We saw whales, dolphins, seals, and the best views of what the Bay has to offer. Highly recommend and will absolutely go again.

    The crew was great from the moment we were greeted at the loading dock. Nothing but smiles and "Welcome Aboards" Once on the water I thought we were in trouble when one of the crew cam bounding across the catamaran towards us but then asked if we wanted our picture taken with a perfect view of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Then, a while later he came back and literally corralled us up to the boat bridge and put us in the Captain's chair for a really fun group picture. I live in the Bay Area but my friends are from Nebraska and just loved the experience! Would totally do it again.

    Really nice catamaran, first time I sail on one of these, wasn't crowded at all and we all had plenty of room and good viewing spots. Gets windy, but the crew had extra jackets for anyone that needed one.

    We had a great day sailing with expert skipper, really sailing not motoring. We had a problem with our reservations being listed on the wrong day. “No problem, come on board; we will work it out.” Come enjoy a full 90 minutes of natural fun.

    Absolutely everything went right for us. The wind, the sun, and no fog were exactly the way you'd want them. If you've sailed before, everything was the way you'd want it. If you haven't, this is a great introduction to a couple of hours under canvas. The views are once- in-a- lifetime and the price is great. They're not kidding-- take a jacket... seriously. No joke. The bridge has its own weather system.

    The Captain and his crew are Fun-tastic! They care the safety of all passengers on board. My daughter got sea-sick and when Michael found out and saw her, he asked the Captain to sit be the lady Captain. The Captain helped her feel better. Thank you Capt and your crew!

    Maybe because it was a cloudy, rainy day we lucked into a basically private sailing! So grateful to have gotten the chance to take advantage of unique sailing conditions for a great trip around the bay. Victoria, Brian, and Captain Hans we're the best- will definitely sail with Adventure Cat again.

    Great value for money, intimate setting, and a better and more refined experience than the other ferries. A must do when in San Francisco!
