Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Bay Sunset Catamaran Cruise

San Francisco Sunset Cruise
© Adventure Cat Sailing Charters

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.

Unfortunately it rained and was misty the entire trip - so couldn't see the sunset.

The trip itself is great however, fantastic crew and you get brilliant close up views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Only 2 other people showed so there were 3 Crew and 3 passengers, so there were plenty of nibbles and drinks to go round.
And being the only passenger outside for the 2nd half of the trip they guys offered to let me get a picture 'driving' the boat and I had a great time sat up talking to the captain.

This was the highlight of our tour to San Francisco. We went the last night of the season Dec 3rd, the bay was calm and we sailed on water that looked like glass. Sat at the front watching the sun set behind the Golden Gate with a cold beer and quietness, was incredible. Everyone on a high on trip back to wharf. A thoroughly wonderful night. Thanks to the staff for your relaxed easy going attitude.

The sunset cruise was the best way to start our vacation. We even saw whales, everything was top notch, the captain and crew took great pains to provide a trip to remember.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

This was wonderful. The crew was very personable. I dressed in layers and it was needed for a November sail. We do this type of activity whenever we travel to any coastal area. This did not disappoint.
