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.

  • 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.

This was a perfect ending to our stay in San Francisco, including the sea lions along the one area they have claimed on Pier 39. The 3 gentlemen working the cruise, music, and sights were magnificent and magical for us. Could not have been any happier.
