Highlights
  • Get unobstructed views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and city skyline 
  • Learn about the San Francisco Bay Area’s ecosystem and history
  • Look for sea lions, seals, and dolphins in the bay
  • Try sailing the boat under the guidance of the captain
What to Expect
Make your way to the Embarcadero to board a catamaran for your sailing cruise. After a safety briefing, your captain steers the boat into the open waters of the San Francisco Bay. Get great photo ops as you pass close to Alcatraz, Fort Point, the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Sausalito, and other landmarks. Look for sea lions and dolphins as your boat sails close to the Pacific Ocean, and hear commentary from your captain about the history and wildlife of the bay. Have the option stay warm and dry in the catamaran’s protected interior; or take a seat on the trampoline net for a taste of the salty ocean breeze. Bring warm layers for the cooler temperatures on the water. Snacks, wine, beer, or soft drinks can be purchased from the onboard bar. Your tour ends with return to the marina in San Francisco.
