This trip is a unique opportunity not only to enjoy the bay but also to switch off, maybe as a highlight at the end of a trip. The crew is super nice, helpful and always has an ear. The check-in at the wharf works great. If you don't have a jacket with you, you can put on one of the boot's own jackets. I would definitely book it again because we really enjoyed it. Thanks again to the crew of the Adventure Cat 2

We loved every minute of this cruise. The crew were so down to earth and easy to get along with. It was fun being able to sit in the captain's chair and have them take some pictures of us. The first drink was included and the crew came around and took our order. It is much more fun being on a cruise with a smaller number of guests, which allows the crew to be much more personal. The cruise takes you right up and under the Golden Gate Bridge. We got fantastic photos and were lucky the weather was great and the skies were clear and free of fog.

Hans, Bryan and all the crew on the adventure cat were outstanding. Welcoming, friendly, and super fun! We had an amazing time sailing on the bay. It gets cold! But that’s what open air sailing is all about. 10/10 would recommend - one of our absolute favorite things we did in San Francisco.
