I LOVED this sailing tour. The entrance was right next to the Sea Lions at Pier 49, so it's a fun wait if you arrive at the dock gate a little early. From the beginning, the captain was so pleasant and funny and had the nicest crew. They set the tone with food, drinks and music inside the boat. But most of the passengers were on deck taking pictures, listening to music and enjoying the sights. The sail out toward the bridge was cold, super windy and a little rough in Nov (if you're not used to being on a boat). Definitely need to hold onto the rails, but it didn't stop anyone from walking around freely. It was so much fun. The crew had passengers volunteer to hoist the sail and offered to take every passengers picture on their phones - that was a nice touch. They offered large warm coats in case you didn't dress for the weather, but you can also enjoy the ride inside the cabin where there are seats and the music is louder. It was very enjoyable, a lot of fun, kid friendly but words cannot describe how amazing it was to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge. You just have to do it. On the return, the sunset behind the bridge was spectacular and the waters were much much more calm. We sailed around the bay getting different vantage points of the surroundings while Cole Porter played on deck and the city lights slowly lit up as the sun went down. This was one of the best activities I've done in 3 different weekends in San Fran. Just do it, why even consider any other sailing tour?

I took my family on this sunset tour and it was beautiful. The boat tour sails to the golden gate bridge for a sunset. The crew is very friendly and there are a great selection of drinks on board (alcohol and non alcoholic). Overall a great experience.

This cruise was the last activity we did in San Francisco (me, my husband and by adult kids), and it was the best of our trip! A clear blue sky permitted a wonderful sunset, the people working on the boat were very nice, the food very good and the music excellent! I recommand and would redo it anytime! :)

Great evening, warm welcome and weather to match. Beautiful sunset in a blue sky and there was the bridge, the city and flights of pelicans to see us home.

Dress warm! Freezing windy typical San Francisco summer evening experience. The crew was terrific and friendly. This experience is so worth it. No better way to see San Francisco!

Despite the foggy and cool conditions, one of my favorite tours while in San Francisco. The crew was very friendly and did their best to make sure everyone was having a good time. The light apps consisted of a nice blend of fruit, cheese, vegetables, hummus and chips and salsa. Even though the initial round was devoured before I could get some, they replenished it rather quickly. Very nice selection of beer and wine. The views from the craft were amazing despite the fog. Customer service was top notch and I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a different view of the city (and doesn’t mind being out on a boat).

This was just the most amazing and exhilarating experience. Chad and Katrina couldn’t have made this trip any better. From the moment we stepped on board this beautiful catamaran until we sadly had to depart, I was truly grateful to have found this beautiful sunset cruise. The views and sunset were stunning! Wonderful selection of things to drink plus the hors d’oeuvres were perfect. Everyone on board was happy, carefree, and full of joy with the experience. The highlight was going under the Golden Gate bridge in the balmy Bay. Make sure to bring your hat and gloves, jackets were provided for everyone if needed. I still wish I was back on board. It was one of the highlights, besides Alcatraz, of our San Francisco trip for me and my sons. Thank you so much!

We absolutely loved every second of our trip on the Adventure Cat. The crew were friendly, fun and made the trip completely enjoyable. The views are spectacular, and sailing under the Golden Gate was amazing. Highly recommend.

The catamaran was neat and clean, the crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. We were not only provided with a nice selection of snacks but the drink choices were great to! One if the crew offered to take several pictures of us - even let us look like we were driving the boat with the sunset behind us! Above and beyond our expectations - do much fun! Also the wind was quite cold and they provided warm jackets for everyone!

We had great weather for our 7pm cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge and around The Rock. It’s cold on the water but the crew provides warm jackets if you need. Definitely the highlight of the weekend.

July 4th cruise was cold, cloudy, windy, and totally amazing!! Crew had coats on board for everyone in addition to light hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Crew members were gracious and helpful, answering questions, taking pics, etc. But best part was the cruise; sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz Island and back, about 1.5 hours, and sailing on a catamaran was better than any ferry or ship cruise I've done. Would definitely recommend this and can wait to dobita again!!!
