Adventure Cat Sailing Charters , Pier 39 Dock J, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA

Departure Point: Pier 39, Gate J, San Francisco 94133 Directions: Stand on the sidewalk facing the water. Enter main P39 entrance, then out left between shops to the water (towards GG Bridge). Gate J is located right next to the sea lion viewing area (ask someone where are sea lions are if lost).

This activity will end right where it started.
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!).

Take in the beauty 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.

It was a typical chilly foggy September night but the crew was great. They had jackets and played fun music. We felt very safe on the bay and were able to see the bridge and get pictures despite the fog. They kept to their time of 1.5 hours too.

I was hesitant about this trip because it was so windy! When we got on board there were 2 crew and the captain, they 3 guys made the trip so pleasant it didn’t matter that it was windy, they took pictures for everybody they brought drinks for everybody, the captain and crew made this experience phenomenal!!! If you have the chance book this catamaran with theses guys they will give you memories.

Had a fantastic experience on this cruise run by Adventure Cat. The skipper has an excellent British sense of humour which made us feel at ease and the whole crew were fantastic really, everyone was trying to make your experience as good as possible. I particularly liked the fact that they would offer to take pictures which is quite nice in this day and age. Remember to wear lots of layers as it will be windy and cold. In fact, the crew had spare jackets to help those that didn't realise this so again, top marks to them. Really couldn't fault it, highly recommend it!

Fantastic company and experience. Great sailing. Friendly crew. I totally recommend. The catamaran is very wide so it rides flat in the waves.
