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 worth every penny. Lovely views, great staff, kind, accommodating. I needed to charge my phone and they hooked it up for me. We saw everything we wanted to see, from Sausalito to the bring and Alcatraz. It was overcast and very chili, but we were prepared. It is my son's birthday weekend and the captain let him steer, so that was really cool too.

Nice trip for the end of the day. They had good snacks, decent wine, and very important... For those of us unaccustomed to 'summer' in San Francisco...they had warm coats available for everyone quite necessary in August. Good value

It was really special. The mist added a different and unique dimension to it! The crew were really friendly and competent.

The Sunset Cruise was definitely one of the highlights of our recent visit to San Francisco! When we booked our cruise we expected a quiet experience cruising the Bay gazing at the beautiful city skyline and the sun setting over the Bay, which would have been lovely. Wow, did we ever underestimate what we about to experience! The cruise was exciting and interactive and so much fun!! Guests were given the option to remain in the catamaran's cabin or to go out on deck to experience the wind and spray! We chose the deck option and we're so glad that we did! Cruising San Francisco Bay under sail was amazing! We cruised around Alcatraz for some spectacular views! The pinnacle of the cruise was when we sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge! An experience we will definitely never forget! Fabulous! We watched the sunset over the Bay on perfectly clear evening! Magical!

The catamaran crew was capable, personable and professional. They were very vigilant of their guests safety and did everything they could to make the experience the best it could possibly be. We were served light appetizers and drinks, which we very nice. The only thing that could have made the experience any better would have been to make it last longer! LOL

I would absolutely recommend the San Francisco Bay Sunset Catamaran Cruise to anyone! We would do it again in a heartbeat and it will definitely be on our list of must-do activities the next time we're in San Francisco! Loved every minute of it!

This catamaran tour is excellent. A reasonable number of participants, plenty of space on the boat, thick coats are supplied as the weather can be unpredictable you WILL get fog around the bridge!. The light snacks are more than sufficient and there is a wide choice of both alcoholic and soft drinks 2 included in the price of the ticket, any others based on an honesty bar. There is no audio commentary as the team prefer to play music during the tour, which is an excellent idea excellent choice of music also. The crew are available throughout to discuss San Francisco and the Bay Area, to serve the drinks, to take photos etc. The whole experience was great, friendly, relaxed and definitely to be repeated.

This is probably the best you can do in San Francisco. It was a bit cold and windy, we got soaked but had the best time ever! I can and #39;t wait to do it again. We also had a small group compared to other boat and that makes a world of difference too.
