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.

    The Captain and his Chief Officer Michael, were wonderful and made our sailing trip delightful for everyone! They were knowledgeable about the safety on the boat, the surrounding areas and panoramic views and where and when to snap the 'perfect picture........a total day of pleasure!

    A great cruise with a warm and friendly crew! I was amazed how they helped people around the boat, took an amazing number of terrific pictures of passengers if they wanted, and ran a good bar. The views on the bay are spectacular as is the crew! This is a wonderful thing to do with your family at a reasonable price. It is a adventure you should not miss when visiting San Francisco.

    The day after Thanksgiving we spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon cruising from Pier 39 past the seals and out into a calm almost windless San Francisco Bay. Heading out towards the Golden Gate, the mainsail was raised with assistance from our fellow sailors, while we searched for enough wind to actually sail. Pods of porpoises accompany our transit under the bridge and finally we find enough breeze to pull out the headsail and turn off the engines. Heading back towards the dock we glided closely past Alcatraz, before tying up besides boisterous seals. An excellent way to enjoy the Bay.

    What an awesome experience! Went on the boat ride with our 2 daughters on a weekend trip to San Francisco. There was plenty of room on the boat and it was super clean. The captain let our girls 'drive' the boat which was really cool. Super knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend.

    It was a perfect way to experience the beauty of San Fran from the water. The crew was great in interacting and making it seem like a cruise with friends. The pictures say it all - It was beautiful!

    Beautiful November day! A sun-filled 1.5 hour relaxing sail in the San Francisco Bay sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge & passing by Alcatraz. The view of the city from the water is spectacular! We loved it!

    Very chill and friendly crew. Best way to entertain family from out of town. Took my brother and wife who were visiting from Idaho on a lovely cruise on the bay. Perfect conditions, great value.

    We flew out to San Francisco to get married and really wanted to go sailing the day after - I did some looking around and decided that based off the reviews and price that this tour was the best option. It didn’t disappoint! Following the directions included we were easily able to find the check-in gate. We got there the 30 minutes early that it recommended but you can’t get past the gate and we didn’t see anyone. However about 10 minutes later someone came out to start the check-in process which was fast and easy. The crew was super helpful and friendly the entire time - some of the other tourists even got to help hoist the sail up as we took off which was fun to watch and I’m sure even better to actually do! We were blessed by beautiful weather, we saw seals, dolphins, and even a group of planes fly over as we sailed. Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge up close and going underneath was amazing. So was seeing the city from the water! Make sure to wear an extra layer or two because it gets super cold when the boat really gets moving and even colder when the sail blocks out the sun. Fortunately you can seek shelter in the boat and they have extra jackets on board you can borrow. Snacks and drinks are extra but seemed reasonably priced. I obviously can’t rate the other trips that are offered but I would book this again!

    We did this cruise our first night in SF and it was the perfect way to begin our vacation. The crew —Michael, Chad & Liz were amazing! They made the guests feel apart of the ships crew and took every opportunity to make it an memorable experience. We have been in the hospitality business for decades and these guys are a worthy crew. Thanks for a fantastic sail! Side note: A banana on a boat!?! … funny, Liz :-)

    Captain Andrew and his crewmates Chad and Christina were wonderful! They were personable, laidback, and knowledgeable about all things sailing and points of interest about the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and wildlife in the Bay. They were willing to take photographs of us as we sailed. This was my second trip with my guests from Colorado; it was absolutely thrilling for my guests and without the crowds that a ferry boat cruise involves. Money well spent! Very safe. I loved how they really took an interest in the guests aboard and allowed them to feel a part of the sailing experience itself. I highly recommend this experience!
