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.

We did this on our last day in San francisco and had a great time. Met some great people and the staff was awesome.

This was even better than I hoped for. Okay so I had imagined a sunny summer evening, sailing round the bay but what we got was a cloudy, foggy, freezing cold, late July trip and it was even more fun! Luckily they provided us with big, warm jackets that were a godsend as we were already frozen to our bones after an earlier trip to Alcatraz. There was sea spray and wind and much fun negotiating our way out to the front of the catamaran and back for photo opportunities! The canapés were much more substantial than expected so don't eat before you go so you can enjoy them properly, unlike us! We had a great view of the GG bridge, even though we couldn't see much of it as it was shrouded in the famous fog. The atmosphere onboard was fun and we laughed a lot at our girls getting sprayed by water and blown by the wind. Definitely one of our favourite moments from our California trip.

We (3 pals in for the weekend) LOVED this. I absolutely recommend and would do again next time I'm in SF. Everyone was helpful and polite. They had jackets for everybody which was great because it was cold.
We stood out on the front of the deck the whole time and the whole bottom half of our bodies were soaked. (Only the bottom because we were wearing their coats)
Rockin' good time, guys! THANKS!

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.
