You'll enjoy the San Francisco Bay Eco-Cruise on the comfortable 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran Kitty Kat, which features a unique hull design and superior engineering. The Kitty Kat is the most advanced vessel for wildlife expeditions in San Francisco. At times, it may be substituted with the 43-foot (13-meter) Happy Days, which features a heated cabin, spacious sun deck, and indoor and outdoor seating! Be sure to bring a camera and a light coat for this expedition.
Was a good tour and got to see some harbour porpoise and brown pelicans. Unfortunately there was nothing else out there because of the time of year we went but still a great tour and a must do if you love wildlife
Only the unpredictably foggy weather detracted from a 5-star rating.
An excellent guide and friendly passengers all willing to share their knowledge of the Bay's natural habitat with me, a first time visitor to SF
Highly enjoyable - the time just rushed by!
We had a very knowledgeable person giving us information about the animals that we saw and some that sometimes inhabit the area. Also about the cliffs and the animals on Alcatraz. It was a really nice boat ride around the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco Bay. I wasn't quite sure what I was expecting, but I was hoping for a little more. If you were wanting to go on a ride around the bay area, the bridge and around Alcatraz, this is really the one to take because you will also have a person very knowledgeable about the animals and area and how they interact with each other.
Disappointing. The few seals we saw were far away. No binoculars available...perhaps they should suggest people bring them. I wouldn't take any future guests on this trip.
