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.

My boyfriend and I loved it. We went on my birthday and it was the perfect gift. The sight was so beautiful. We seen some dolphins in the water as well. Our tour guides were really sweet. For my birthday they gave me some wine on the house. Would most definitely recommend and would be doing this the next time I’m back in San Francisco.

Great cruise! Easy to find the catamaran off of Pier 39. The crew left right on time, and we returned promptly at 5:30. Everyone was friendly, and maintained COVID safety measures.

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.
