Highlights
  • Sunset catamaran cruise offers stunning views of the San Francisco skyline
  • Sail right past Alcatraz Island and under the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Admire 360-degree views from a protected area or ride in open air
What to Expect
Make your way to the Embarcadero to board your 55- or 65-foot (17- or 20-meter) catamaran. Get comfortable in a shielded area with 360-degree views or opt for the open air. Enjoy the open air as your captain takes you across the San Francisco Bay. Sail right by Alcatraz, past the charming Sausalito waterfront, and directly under the Golden Gate Bridge. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of wildlife such as sea lion colonies, dolphins, and porpoises. Catch the sunset over the water, and watch the city skyline light up for unbeatable views of Coit Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid. Cruise concludes at original departure point.
