We were the only ones booked on this so we were upgraded to the sunset cruise which was amazing. Really cold but they provided jackets which were life savers.


Everything! The views the personal experience offered, the easy access to the pier. Staff was excellent and very comedic and informative.


We had an amazing time aboard the Adventure Cat. The crew was friendly, views unparalleled and overall it was a unique and unforgettable afternoon on the water. We got up close to the GG bridge, saw Alcatraz and skyline views we wouldn't have had otherwise. The crew made the whole experience really fun, they had a great playlist and a good selection of refreshments. My daughter really enjoyed the interactive components like raising the sail and giving steering a try.


Had an amazing afternoon on the Adventure Cat! Captain Katrina and mates, Freddy and Haley made this adventure so much fun! An interactive experience. Guests helped hoist the sail. I got to sit in the Captain’s chair! Knowledgeable crew. I highly recommend this tour. Just do it! You won’t regret it!


I am terified of boats and being on water, but I was showing my British husband around my home turf (SF) with my father, and was suggested this adventure as a once and a lifetime experience. It was terrifying as someone who hates boats but I am so glad I did it because it was still really REALLY fun and I am so glad my scardy cat self went on board! My husband and father loved the experience especially my British husband who got to sight-see with his camera, and my father who has lived in SF since he was a kid and worked in the city was so in awe of being able to go under the Golden Gate Bridge. I think this was the peak experience of our trip, and while I had a death-grip on the rails, I am so so SO glad we booked this trip. They guys on board who ran the experience were super charming, calm, and very comical--able to entertain a wide range of guests and make people feel secure. I can't wait to book a visit again next time with my inlaws! They'll love it!


Fantastic boat tour from start to finish. Epic view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate even saw dolphins. Much better experience than a ferry in my opinion. There was plenty of coats to put on if you were cold and drinks and snacks to purchase. Even had a photo in the drivers seat. A must if you are in San Francisco!


I highly recommend this cruise. It was a small group of people which made the experience much more special than being on one of the big ships. The crew was exceptionally friendly and even offered to take photos in various places of the catamaran. The weather was beautiful and we even saw two porpoises. Next time I‘m back in SF I‘ll book the same cruise again.


Was a great bay cruise with awesome views The staff was amazing. Love that it was a catamaran Thank you!!


Not a textbook perfect day: maybe just a little bit better. With only a dozen-or-so people on board, and a warm, welcoming crew, it was a beautiful day to be outdoors, on the water, away from crowds and concrete, enjoying every single minute.


Spent the whole cruise outside at the front, lapping up a very real sense of adventure. Great experience; great crew. Wish I had time to go again!
