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.

We had a great time. The crew was friendly and helpful. The boat stopped by the Golden Gate Bridge so we could take pictures, catch the sun setting beyond the horizon (amazing view) and get a better view of Alcatraz. The only thing is that it was cold and nobody can be blamed for that but had it been a warmer time of the year, I would've enjoyed it more ... I highly recommend this experience!!!
