...those were the exact words of our 18 year old son after the skipper allowed him to take the wheel of the catamaran for a few minutes on San Francisco bay. This was typical of the crew on the Adventure Cat - all worked hard to make us feel at home and ensure that we had a wonderful time. This... More

We didn't have the time to go to Alcatraz, but we wanted to see it and San Francisco by sea. The captains were fantastic. A couple of drinks and a Snack Bar (including Brie Cheese) were included. I've seen many sunsets, but the view of the Sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge was absolutely unforgettable. The atmosphere was such that... More

We were in San Francisco visiting our son and happened to see the Adventure Cat dock on Pier 39 and called the number + booked the tour, it was well worth every penny! This is a sailboat, so not your typical tour boat and the experience was awesome! The staff were great, they pre-warned people that were sitting in areas... More

The must ride at Pier 39. Its absolutely magnificent. Honestly its truly an enjoyable experience and the crew was so friendly. From the normal ferry ride or fast ride, this ride allow you to take aback and be really close to the ocean. Took the 1pm session. Must say the timing was good for lots of photography. Even experience some... More

Totally unplanned, my wife and I took this charter during a visit to San Francisco to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It ended up being the highlight of our trip. The crew couldn't possibly be nicer. Also, you really felt their sense of pride in what they did throughout the entire trip. This, in our opinion, was the best value... More

My husband and I have been on many a tour boat, but this was the best. It was great to see the sights without a loud noisy smelly enjoy. It really helped that the boat did not carry the huge amount of crowds, which gave all of us time to relax move about, and converse with the very informative crew.... More

The captain and crew at Adventure Cat Sailing Charters in San Francisco have the best jobs on the waterfront; and the wind in San Francisco doesn't disappoint. Our sailing charter was on a 50 foot catamaran. A very stable vessel. Non sailors should not fear, the wind is strong but catamarans remain level and feel very secure. The cabin is... More

We did the sunset cruise 9/19. It was foggy and windy, but they had extra jackets and the views were still great. We definitely thought it was worth the money.

The excursion lasted 90 minutes. We were accompanied by the captain, a bearded red haired young man, his deckhand, and a young lady assistant. They were each friendly and helpful. The excursion was ran with professionalism and humor. The appetizers made available were delicious, healthy, and plentiful.

I love, love, love being on the water and this sunset excursion was awesome. They sail underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and past Alcatraz so you have some great photo ops. The water was beautiful at sunset and the city lights as we docked were really pretty. It's cold at night in November so bring a sweater!
