Make your way to the Embarcadero to board a catamaran for your sailing cruise.

After a safety briefing, your captain steers the boat into the open waters of the San Francisco Bay. Get great photo ops as you pass close to Alcatraz, Fort Point, the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Sausalito, and other landmarks.

Look for sea lions and dolphins as your boat sails close to the Pacific Ocean, and hear commentary from your captain about the history and wildlife of the bay.

Have the option stay warm and dry in the catamaran’s protected interior; or take a seat on the trampoline net for a taste of the salty ocean breeze. Bring warm layers for the cooler temperatures on the water.

Snacks, wine, beer, or soft drinks can be purchased from the onboard bar. Your tour ends with return to the marina in San Francisco.

Very nice cruise. Nice to touch to have jackets on board, It is crazy to have to write 100 minimum characters.

Best way to experience the bay

I've lived in San Francisco 8 years, and this may be the best thing I've done here. Sailing on a catamaran was a completely different experience than being out on one of the other motorized boats - it was a real rush to be on...More

My wife and I took the cruise in late August. Chad and the crew were super friendly, and hospitable. It was a great value & we had a great experience and would suggest to everyone.

Pier 39. Go to the West side where the California Sea Lions, and just south of main viewing area is the entrance to the docks, and a sign that has a picture of the Adventure Cat boat.
