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.

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!

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.
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.
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.
How fast does the Adventure Cat 2 go?
Under sail, the average speed is 8-12 knots.

"This catamaran sailing was the best cruise ever. Very friendly and customer oriented individuals. Knowledge and timing was very accurate. I will recommend to friends going to San Francisco!!! I took my brother and his wife with us and they were thrilled and want to do it again!!! "
"Our catamaran adventure was more than we could have imagined. The crew was wonderful and the ship was beautiful. I would absolutely recommend this experience for anyone who loves the water. I did want to mention that I was surprised that when I saw their price on the gate for $10 cheaper than what I paid with you. This was rather disappointing as I have been recommending you to all my friends. This might be something you could research in your future experiences. Thank you so much"
