We loved this. Never done anything like this and it was one of the best things we have ever done on a holiday. Took us around Alcatraz and then along under the Golden Gate bridge. It was chilly but the lads loved it, the 2 mams only ventured on deck for a few mins. We were lucky as only about... More

Adventure Cat Sailing is absolutely the best way to see San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Sailing in a catamaran allows you to relax and just glide through the water. Our captain, Hans, and first mate, Mike, were very attentive to all the passengers answering questions and even allowing you to drive the catamaran if you choose. Sailing... More

We went just before Thanksgiving so reasonably quiet. We booked the catamaran about an hour before it sailed. Great experience. Made out trip.

My wife and I came to SF for our 10yr anniversary. She surprised me with this sailing trip. It was by far the highlight of our trip!! Captain Tony and Michael made sure it was a terrific experience. If you go to SF make sure you do this. You sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and get to see the... More

What an incredible way to see the bay area! A comfortable ride in a great catamaran with incredible views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Such a pleasant afternoon sailing out of Pier 39. The Sea Lions are there to greet you as you get on the boat, and the staff gets you out on the water in quick... More

Guides were awesome and very informative. They let my husband drive. It was a beautiful day on the bay September 17, 2015! There were 6 in our party, a good time was had by all. My two nieces first trip to San Francisco, they were absolutely amazed at the beauty of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge!

We had such an amazing experience with Adventure Cat Sailing Charter! Only us and another couple booked a Thursday night sunset cruise and the crew was so nice to just take us 4 out on the cruise instead of cancelling the trip. The sunset was the most incredible sight and the wine and music made it even better! They even... More

We were looking for something different to do and I came across the day catamaran trip. Booked online the night before - it was so easy. The trip was 90 minutes and the perfect weather made it very enjoyable. We were able to be outside on the deck to really get a feel for the catamaran. The two crew members... More

We took the afternoon trip. We were the only ones who signed up for the trip on that particular voyage, so we basically had a private tour. The tour goes around Alcatraz and then continues under the Golden Gate bridge and back. Wonderful views of the city and a top notch crew. I would highly recommend this!

I was late in firming up my dates in SF, so I missed booking Alcatraz in time. Looking around for packaged deals this one came up. I was desperate to go, so I took a punt at £50 a head for Alcatraz tickets and a Catamaran cruise under the Golden Gate. I hope my luck holds out like this in... More
