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.

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.

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.

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to San Francisco.

Very well planned-left on time, very organized. Nice course under the Golden Gate Bridge, terrific music. Nice touch was providing jackets for people-anticipating the fact that people will get cold on the water-most people were dressed for the beach.
