More detailed description >


Experience San Francisco's uncontested urban beauty from an Adventure Cat catamaran on the invigorating Pacific waters of San Francisco Bay. Sail away from the urban feel of the city and experience all of San Francisco's excitement from a vantage point on the sea.

On your scenic cruise around the Bay, you'll sail by historic Alcatraz Island, get a unique view as you sail under the Golden Gate Bridge lit up at night, take plenty of photos of the breath-taking San Francisco city skyline and pass by a colony of grunting sea loins or even spot some whales.

Since 1991, your provider has been cruising the San Francisco Bay, giving world class tours and delighting 1000's of passengers young and old.

Your 55 foot catamaran is complete with a 360-degree, protected viewing area for those who don't like the wind in their faces as well as canvas trampoline nets where you can experience the ocean and sights in the open sea air.

You'll experience a view of the city and surrounding areas like you've never seen!

View FAQ's >

  1. What is the difference between a catamaran and a real sailboat?
    A catamaran has two hulls instead of one.  The result is a more stable ride like a Rolls Royce compared to a Dune Buggy.
  2. Will I get seasick?
    Probably not.  Since we are a more stable ride most people don't have any problems.  If you are very susceptible you may want to get a patch or some seasick pills.
  3. Will I get wet?
    If you're outside on the trampolines, there is a pretty good chance you'll get wet.  If you really don't want to get wet, you can stay in the cabin.  With a 360 degree view, you won't miss a single thing.
  4. How fast does the Adventure Cat 2 go?
    Under sail, the average speed is 8-12 knots.
