Feel the excitement of the night approaching as you escape for a romantic evening aboard the San Francisco Sunset Catamaran Cruise. Marvel at the city's dazzling skyline as you journey across the tranquil Pacific waters of the Bay Area for an unforgettable outing.
Get swept up in the magic of the evening as the 55-foot catamaran leaves the vibrant hustle and bustle of SF's Fisherman's Wharf behind. The enthusiastic barking of the harbor area's sea lions grows softer as the boat cruises from San Francisco's shoreline, towards the famed Alcatraz Island. Marvel at the landmark's unique history as a lighthouse, military fort and prison while your SF cruise makes its way around it, with Angel Island and Treasure Island on the not-too-distant horizon.
As the sun seems to slowly sink below the magnificent expanse of ocean, enjoy the fresh air of the Bay from the sturdy netting of the boat's unique canvas trampoline deck. Water splashes beneath you as the San Francisco Catamaran Cruise cuts across waves, steering past the twinkling lights of the cityscape against the darkening sky.
Find your way into the cabin space, where 360-degree views and a cozy ambiance await. Intimate tables and plush seating make for the perfect place to enjoy two complimentary beverages (beer, wine or soda) and light hors d'oeurves, as you take in the scenery from the comfort of indoors. Additional beverages are available for purchase from the boat's cash bar, should you wish to wet your whistle a bit more.
Kick back and relax as the catamaran glides out to one of the most iconic San Francisco attractions of all time, the Golden Gate Bridge. With the lighting of this spectacular structure against the night sky, nothing quite compares to seeing it stretch 1.7 miles across the vast waters of the strait, as you pass beneath it. Enjoy countless photo opps as the bridge takes your breath away!
Trust your romantic evening aboard the San Francisco Catamaran Cruise to a company who has been offering Bay Area boat tours since 1991!

"Really enjoyed the sunset cruise! Staff was great!"
"It was even better than I had anticipated that it would be. I know San Francisco and the Bay, and this was a wonderful experience even for the non-tourist."
"I didn't know that the boat ride was open to large groups of tourists to also book the same ride. It was fine, but the boat was packed, and we didn't expect to be sharing it because it's not really mentioned anywhere. "
