On your scenic cruise around the Bay, you'll sail by historic Alcatraz Island, sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, and have the opportunity to take plenty of photos of the breath-taking San Francisco city skyline. You may even pass by a colony of grunting sea lions or even spot some whales!

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. It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Dune Buggy.
  2. Will I get seasick?
    Since catamarans are more stable, most people don't have any problems. However, if you are very susceptible to sickness, you may want to take seasick pills or wear a patch.
  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 (approximately 9-13 MPH).
