This was the best thing we've done here. I would not leave San Fran until you do this. Spectacular views of Alcatraz and going under the golden date bridge. I wanted to stay all day!

I've been to San Francisco thrice and this trip was unforgettable. I've seen the city from a tour bus and by bicycle. However seeing it from a catamaran in the middle of the bay is a superb view and feel of the city and it's famous landmarks. You will immensely enjoy the tour.

Yes, this was our best activity in SF. Not too many people on the tour, and we did in fact use the sails, not the engine! Some snacks were served, and a bit cold this day. But a nice trip!

We went on the evenings cruise and paid the up charge for drinks and snacks. So here are the main points. The boat was too crowded which made it hard to maneuver and too loud in the cabin. Tryouts have to sit outside to really see the scenery. It's COLD so bundle up. Also be prepared to get wet. We... More

Very fun ride, it was a bit cold but manageable. Saw dolphins, Alcatraz, and went under the bridge. It would have been even better if there was some sort of an explanation of the areas (about Alcatraz or the golden gate bridge) but over all fun day

Best boat ride on the Bay! Make sure to arrive early for parking, and the rest is amazing. They sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz.

We were a party of 9- including 5 kids ages 8-11. Did the 3pm tour on a weekday end of June and were rewarded with a beautiful ride out around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge with spectacular weather. The two person crew could not have been nicer, letting all the kids help with the sail and "drive" a... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this 1 1/2 hours trip round Alcatraz and then under the Golden Gate Bridge. The sea was a bit choppy but wasn't a problem although it did begin to get cold. However, warm anoraks were provided which was a really thoughtful gesture and most passengers took advantage of them. There was a bar on... More
