Overview
Take in sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay Area from the water during this sailboat cruise that departs from from San Francisco. Your catamaran sails past Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, the waterfront town of Sausalito, and other landmarks, offering prime photo ops of the region. Hear commentary about the sights from the captain, and you can even lend a hand with the steering if you like.
Highlights
  • Get unobstructed views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and city skyline 
  • Learn about the San Francisco Bay Area’s ecosystem and history
  • Look for sea lions, seals, and dolphins in the bay
  • Try sailing the boat under the guidance of the captain
What to Expect
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.

My husband and I had a fantastic cruise on the Catamaran! The boat was expansive. The crew fantastic! They took us from Pier 39 over to the Golden Gate and under it, and then came back close to Alcatraz. They took pictures of us at the Captain's Chair and by the bridge. It
