Catamaran cruise on San Francisco Bay
Sail away from the city and take in the sights from the water
Don’t just take photos of San Francisco Bay from the waterfront—get out on the water itself with this SF sailing tour. Your experience starts on the Embarcadero, where you’ll hop aboard the 55- or 65-foot (17- or 20-meter) Adventure Cat and set out across the bay. Take a picture or two of the city skyline and resident sea lions as they become smaller and smaller, and listen to commentary from your captain about the city and other sights that line the water. If you want to stay warm and dry, you can enjoy 360-degree views from the catamaran’s protected interior; if you’re feeling a bit more daring, take a seat on the trampoline nets, where you can soak in the salty ocean air. Cruise past Alcatraz Island, look up at the towering Golden Gate Bridge and admire the charming small town of Sausalito, just across the bridge. If you like, you can purchase snacks, beer, wine or soft drinks from the onboard bar. Your tour ends when you return to the marina in San Francisco.

Definitely worth the money. The staff was very professional and pleasant. The views from this trip are amazing, it'd definitely a great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge. I would recommend this tour for sure.
Excellent 90 minute cruise of SF bay on catamaran around Alacatraz to Golden Gate Bridge and back. Ship provides jackets to customers and offers drinks and snacks for purchase. All staff very friendly and service oriented. Dress warm, the cold wind on the bay just blows right through you. Long pants are a must! Bring camera the views are spectacular; especially when sailing directly under the GGB!
It was a fabulous saling trip!! Beautiful day, not to crowded and crew very nice and inclusive. Gave those interested a chance at the helm with captain watching!! They said to arrive 1/2 hour earlier which really was not necessary as gate to dock was not opened until 10 minutes before. Reccomend!!
