FABULOUS - Upon our arrival the team were all very chatty and super friendly. It took us awhile to get our sea legs ( not sure we ever did) but this made us laugh so much more staggering around. The catamaran appeared much smoother than ordinary boat, enabling us to take some great pictures the crew were always very quick to step in and take some of both of us. We have done many trips on our American adventure and this was by far my favourite. Give it a go you won’t regret it.

A true experience! - We had a great time, the views were spectacular, but the crew really mad the experience. I would like to thank them for their smiles, engagement and overall fun personalities. They even offered for us to captain the boat for photos, we declined but enjoyed watching others and were impressed with the mini photoshoots the gentleman did for them! Highly recommend! Also dress warmly!

Absolutely amazing experience with the best crew! - We had an absolutely fantastic time with the Adventure Cat team. Everyone was super friendly and the sunset trip was just spectacular. Even the weather was a bit challenging, it didn’t really matter. There were extra jackets prepared to keep us warm. The team was super helpful with taking pictures and Captain Katharina shared great info about the bay and wildlife during the trip. Absolutely highlight of our SFO trip and I can only recommend the Adventure Cat team!

A Pleasant Sunset Cruise of San Francisco Bay - An enjoyable cruise out to the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz returning as the San Francisco townscape lit up. Friendly helpful crew. Warm waterproof and windproof jackets provided for those improvident enough not to have dressed appropriately. Hot drinks as well as snacks and other drinks available on board.
