Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Far exceeded our expectations. The staff was pleasant and more than willing to share details of the bay. The view was hands down the best way to view the golden gate. Could not have asked for a better experience.

What a fun, unique, and overall amazing experience! Our group of 6 really enjoyed all that the catamaran had to offer- from the nets we could sit/stand on at the bow to the wine and beer selections to the beautiful views. Soft pink hues cascading over Sausalito as the fog rolled in and the sun went down: magic!! And being able to sail RIGHT under the Golden Gate Bridge was pretty spectacular, too. Very friendly and helpful crew as well.

My wife and I enjoyed the cruise yesterday evening. The crew was friendly and were very dedicated to insuring each passenger enjoyed the trip. The Catamaran was very nice, clean, and safe. The perspective of the Golden Gate from the water at sunset is unique. The 90-minute trip was a great value and worth the price!!

They were not well organized, they hadn't updated their website with correct times and only running every hour. Not worth the cost at this time.

So much fun! The boat was limited to 12 people due to covid which worked out great, each group had their own corner of the boat — which was really nice & spacious. The staff was extremely friendly, chatting with us and explaining different cites around the bay, offering to take photos of each group. The waters were a bit bumpy on our way out, but it was such a beautiful ride! I’d love to do it again!! The sea lions were fun too! The dock is by the sea lions so we had to walk by the animal— THRILLING!! Drinks were available on board as well!
