Overview

Sail across San Francisco Bay at twilight to admire the city skyline as it begins to light up for the night. With an experienced captain at the helm, you’ll glide past Alcatraz Island and cruise underneath the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Evening San Francisco Bay cruise
  • See Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the San Francisco skyline
  • Beautiful sunset views

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is one of the few sunset bay tours—from Alcatraz to the Golden Gate—that sails on a catamaran.
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.

Great cruise of the Bay. We were on the first sail since the shut down in March and only 12 people aboard. The weather was the only aspect that wasn’t perfect, maybe a glass of wine but that’s understandable given covid concerns and city ordinances. Highly recommended if you can make it.

Didn't get the chance to experience this due to not being able to fly to USA at this time, so appreciate them giving a full cash refund which was done automatically. I would have been happy with credit voucher, so fully intend to use this company whenever I get the chance to get over to California 🙃

thought there is an audio guide on the boat or tour guide that talk on the microphone so we can hear the places that we passed along the ocean. Otherwise, the sunset was beautiful and the bridge. The snacks are limited and drinks.

I LOVED this sailing tour. The entrance was right next to the Sea Lions at Pier 49, so it's a fun wait if you arrive at the dock gate a little early. From the beginning, the captain was so pleasant and funny and had the nicest crew. They set the tone with food, drinks and music inside the boat. But most of the passengers were on deck taking pictures, listening to music and enjoying the sights. The sail out toward the bridge was cold, super windy and a little rough in Nov (if you're not used to being on a boat). Definitely need to hold onto the rails, but it didn't stop anyone from walking around freely. It was so much fun. The crew had passengers volunteer to hoist the sail and offered to take every passengers picture on their phones - that was a nice touch. They offered large warm coats in case you didn't dress for the weather, but you can also enjoy the ride inside the cabin where there are seats and the music is louder. It was very enjoyable, a lot of fun, kid friendly but words cannot describe how amazing it was to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge. You just have to do it. On the return, the sunset behind the bridge was spectacular and the waters were much much more calm. We sailed around the bay getting different vantage points of the surroundings while Cole Porter played on deck and the city lights slowly lit up as the sun went down. This was one of the best activities I've done in 3 different weekends in San Fran. Just do it, why even consider any other sailing tour?
