Unbeatable views of the San Francisco skyline and a trip under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge make this sunset catamaran cruise the perfect San Francisco sightseeing excursion. Avoid the chaos of the sightseeing crowds, and catch the sunset as you sail around the San Francisco Bay. Plus cruise past Alcatraz Island and Sausalito, and enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres onboard for a true luxurious experience.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Embarcadero to board your 55- or 65-foot (17- or 20-meter) catamaran. Get comfortable in a shielded area with 360-degree views or opt for the open air.

Snack on hors d’oeuvres accompanied by two alcoholic beverages as your captain takes you across the San Francisco Bay. Sail right by Alcatraz, past the charming Sausalito waterfront, and directly under the Golden Gate Bridge. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of wildlife such as sea lion colonies, dolphins, and porpoises.

Catch the sunset over the water, and watch the city skyline light up for unbeatable views of Coit Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid.

Cruise concludes at original departure point.

No, not for the evening cruise. But mom and dad can double up on the beverages if they wish ;-)
