I booked this trip as a surprise to my wife, I can't tell you how Awesome this trip was! Fantastic crew, Great food and Ice cold drinks. Had plenty of coats to keep everyone warm. Best money we spent on our trip! 5 Big Stars! What a wonderful trip to view a beautiful sunset and take fabulous pictures. This trip is as near perfect as you can get, and for the money, it's a must do when you're in San Francisco. They even let us pose as if we were driving the boat. YOU MUST DO THIS TRIP!!!!

I will be visiting San Francisco in October and am one of those persons to get it all sorted beforehand. I booked my ticket for the Sunset Sail on another website and by mistake booked it for the wrong date. I didn't even knew until I called Adventure Cat Sailing Charters to see if they had received my booking. A very nice helpful girl Chrissy discovered I booked the wrong date and rebooked me for the date I wanted. Free of Charge. I received a booking confirmation from her by email about 5 min after the call. What a great service ! Now I am even looking more forward to my San Francisco trip !

"Sunset sail with great weather"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 30, 2019 NEW
We had an awesome sail trip on the longest day of the year and the weather was near perfect. It was definitely cold on the bay but the fog stayed away. Sail was smooth, good drink selections, option to be on deck or inside helped against the wind/cold. Definitely worth it. We took out 13&9yr olds. No problem.

Frequently Asked Questions about Adventure Cat Sailing Adventures

Will I get wet?
If you’re outside on the trampolines, there is a pretty good chance you’ll get wet. If you don’t want to get wet, you can stay in the cabin. With a 360-degree view, you won’t miss a thing.

Will I get seasick?
Probably not. Since the catamaran is so stable most people don’t have any problems. If you are susceptible to seasickness, you may want to get a patch or some seasick pills.

What if I forget a jacket and it gets cold?
We have some jackets on board that you are welcome to use. Jackets are available on a first come, first served basis.

Do you have life jackets for kids and adults?
Yes, life jackets for kids and adults are available.

Is the cabin heated?

Do you serve food or drinks on board?
For our daytime sail, we do not serve any food or drink, but you can purchase wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks at our bar for cash or credit. The sunset sail includes lights hors-d'oeuvres and two complimentary drinks and you can always purchase additional drinks or snacks as well.

Why does the sunset sail go out at different times?
We try to schedule the sunset sails so that you always get a great view of the setting sun. Depending on the time of year and daylight saving time, the sun will set at different times.

What exactly do I see on the sail?
On your scenic sail around the San Francisco Bay, you’ll sail by historic Alcatraz Island, get a unique view as you sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, take plenty of photos of the breathtaking San Francisco city skyline and pass by a colony of sea lions or even spot some whales.

Are there bathrooms aboard the boats?
Yes, there is a clean bathroom for both boats.

What should I wear?
People who go on Adventure Cat 1 or Adventure Cat 2 usually wear jeans, a tee shirt or sweatshirt, tennis shoes, and bring a jacket. If it’s a special occasion, they might get all dressed up.

What happens if it rains?
Severe weather in this area of California is rare and cruises will proceed as scheduled in light rain and other mild weather conditions. Both our boats have 360-degree, protected viewing areas! In the rare event that we have to cancel a cruise, you will have the opportunity to reschedule your tickets (subject to availability) or receive credit towards a future event.
