The cruise route offered great views of the bridge, Alcatraz and the city skyline in the sunset! There was not much comfortable standing or sitting space on the deck due to the size of the catamaran but the cabin was pretty okay. I do not see strict precautions taken for vaccination checks or masking at boarding. The itinerary said English audio and to bring our earphones, so I expected some audio narration of some sort. However, only music was played over the speakers. Overall, I enjoyed myself but I did feel a little discounted by the audio expectation.

Very nice experience. We unfortunately visited on a cloudy evening, so the sunset was not visible below the clouds, but it was still awesome to see the Golden Gate Bridge so close. 1 alcoholic drink per person included. Prices are reasonable to purchase a second or third. Dress warmly! We visited in June and it was downright chilly on the water. The boat offers coats for those who come not well dressed.

Absolutely a great value! The views of the city, and all of the key places around the bay at sunset are amazing. The crew made it a very enjoyable experience, and there was plenty of space in and around the boat to have an open view to every place. The jackets they provide on board were perfect since the wind was chilly in the evening and my light jacket wasn’t enough! We did this on our first night and loved having it on our first day of our trip to get a different view of the Bay Area!

When I booked this tour it stated that “two free drinks & hot Hors d'oeuvres were included as well as an audio tour as you travel the bay” none of which were provided. The girls and I had nothing to eat & were looking forward to a bite on the tour as well as our two drinks. The lady informed us that they made a mistake and no longer provided the two free drinks & food due to co-vid. When we confirmed the ride no one informed us of this change. We would of brought our own snacks. There was also no audio tour provided as promised in the booking confirmation. We made the best of it and the tour operator allowed us to play our own music and we did enjoy the evening. Beautiful views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. The wine was very cheap box wine and the few I had had me sick the next day. Overall it was a positive experience because an evening on the water is always a good time. Just was disappointed that the other things that were supposed to be included in the tour were not.

Great crew! Drinks and snacks aboard. Beautiful views of the bay and the bridge. It was SUPER windy and cold, so we appreciated having the inside area to warm up. Would recommend for sure, but dress warm. Like layers and then more!

This was a fun experience! A great crew that was really friendly and helpful. We sailed on the bay and went right under the GGB. Dress warmly and wear a jacket as it is cold on the water with the wind gusting, and you might get splashed by the water like I did. I really enjoyed seeing the city and the bay area from the water and watching the sun set behind the Marin headlands.

We loved our sunset cruise! The catamaran was spacious and had numerous seating options. The route was awesome - going under the Golden Gate Bridge when the sun was at the perfect angle and then looping back around Alcatraz once it was dark. And most of all, the staff was so friendly and created a fun and enjoyable atmosphere!

This cruise was absolutely AMAZING! The ride to the Golden Gate Bridge was super super cold but the view was beautiful and the boat crew were so nice and willing to take pictures to help capture a incredible moment under the bridge. The sunset was perfect and they slowed the boat down long enough to take pictures from every angle to get the most for your money! This was the best part of my weekend trip for my boyfriends birthday. This is an absolute MUST if you’re in the bay 🙌🏼

This is a wonderful way to see the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. The crew were excellent, friendly and informative. The boat was perfect giving you a feel of really being on the water, and as mentioned in other reviews, the loaner jackets saved the day as it was chilly out in the bay.

On Friday May 14th we boarded the Catamaran for our romantic Sunset Tour of the Bay area. We arrived 30minutes in advance only to have to wait in the freezing cold to board the boat. Warning bells started to ring. The boat was huge not the romantic intimate trip billed. We set off and the sea was a tad choppy. As a sailor, I was wondering why the boat was going so slowly which made it more choppy. I spoke to the Captain who agreed with me, but said he was not going to interfere with his crew and how they were handling the boat. One of the sails was flapping and needed to be pulled in, and only after repeatedly asking him to do something did he respond.
When I asked for the guided tour, he told me it was only available in Chinese and asked what I wanted to know. He then disappeared.
The voyage was awful.
