San Francisco Bay Sunset Catamaran Cruise

What better way to end a day in San Francisco than a sunset catamaran cruise? Sail across San Francisco Bay at twilight to admire the city skyline as it begins to light up for the night. With an experienced captain at the helm, you’ll glide past Alcatraz Island and cruise underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Light hors d’oeuvres and two drinks are included. 


  • 1.5-hour San Francisco Bay cruise
  • See Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the San Francisco skyline
  • Beautiful sunset views
  • Two complimentary drinks included

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

A great value if you're looking for a sunset cruise of the bay. More intimate than a big sightseeing boat, the catamaran features both a shielded viewing area for wind protection and canvas trampoline nets for those who want to be out in the open air.

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Bay Sunset Catamaran Cruise

San Francisco Bay Sunset Cruise

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.

Best trip in San Francisco, just perfect.

If I could give them more starts I would. The best trip in our visit to San Francisco. It was our first tour and was a beautiful way to start it. The crew was very professional and friendly. The food, the drinks and the music where all great and give a great atmosphere. There were a lot of people and all were smiling and were enjoying this trip, as there were excellent views from every spot in the catamaran, even inside, there was a little cold, and they also provide jackets. This tour worth the price you pay. It was just PERFECT, highly recommend this! Lorena Toledo

Phenomenal Tour, a Party of 5 arrived noon on Friday in San Francisco with no plans, checked on line, they were Sold Out for that evening. Called customer service, and they made it happen. Exceptional Tour, best money I spent on the Weekend. Highly Recommend It.
