Full description

Experience the beauty of San Francisco Bay on a round-trip catamaran cruise. Take in San Francisco's breathtaking skyline as you sail by Alcatraz Island and under the Golden Gate Bridge. Feel the breeze and keep a look out for sea lions. Admire your surroundings from a protected viewing area, or live on the edge and stand on the canvas trampoline nets with the waves beneath your feet. Pick up a helpful navigation guide providing information about San Francisco's landmarks as you sail past many of them. Make this experience complete by taking the helm from the captain and steering the catamaran yourself. This sail is the perfect activity for kids as well as kids at heart. The captain and crew are always there, happy to snap a photo or answer your questions about the sights of San Francisco. If all this excitement makes you hungry or thirsty, you’ll find snacks, soda, beer, and wine available at the cabin's snack bar.

    This was a super fun bay cruise and a great way to see the city from a distance. Awesome sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge! There was a very nice lower, protected area for getting drinks and taking a little break from the wind. Brian and all the other staff were very friendly and knowledgable. I would definitely sail with them again!

    What a wonderful experience! It was a perfect experience to share with my dad! The guides were very nice. I also liked that there was not to many people in the boat. It was so cool to go around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge. I kind of wish it was a little bit longer.

    The crew was amazing and extremely hospitable!! I get sea-sick easily, but with them I was actually moving on the boat. I was very scared and hesitant to go while the sky was yellow and smoky, but the crew were very understanding and clarified many things of the trip made me super excited to be on the boat! I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting SF and want the full experience of SF!
