Celebrating our 25th Season of sailing on the San Francisco Bay!


Welcome to Adventure Cat Sailing Charters

Sail with us and experience the beauty of San Francisco right from the water (bring your camera, these views are too good to miss!). Our spacious catamarans take guests on a stable, safe ride combining the exhilaration of fresh air and waves on our deck with the protection and outstanding views from our covered cabin.

Whether you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy or a romantic evening out for two, your sail on Adventure Cat is sure to be a memorable highlight. See some of the Bay’s most popular attractions up close and personal as we sail around Alcatraz Island, directly underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and head back admiring the city’s famed skyline – it’s quite a sight! Catch a glimpse of marine wildlife including pelicans, sea lions, dolphins, and even the occasional whale. Our sailing excursions are consistently rated among the top five things to do in San Francisco, and our thousands of happy guests can testify.

"Having lived in San Francisco for 28 years, I was delighted to experience an Adventure Cat sail for the first time. The boat was well appointed and maintained, the captain was understated and wryly amusing, and the crew were pleasant. I recommend this highly to those looking for a low-key but breathtaking outing."

"Really Great experience to be on a catamaran. Good tour of the bay and great views. The kids (3 and 5) enjoyed it so much and us too. The crew was very concerned with safety but always extremely nice. Good organisation, we recommend it!!!! I enjoy sailing and had never sailed in SF before. This was a smart choice since I would not be able to charter a boat. You can be in the wind and wave on the foredeck or take a break and sit in the cabin. On my trip, there was plenty of room to move around and enjoy the tour while some one else minds the sail trim. I genuinely had a fun time."

"My husband and I drove the coast of California and Oregon, and we loved San Fransisco!! Although it was chilly and foggy, this sailboat cruise was amazing. Great wine and great munchies! Loved the salsa! It just happened to clear up for us as the boat stopped and the sun set! Perfect. We then went inside for more wine and danced to bob marley! Would do it again!"

I genuinely had a fun time. If you're going to cruise the bay, this is the ONLY way to do it. The staff is amazing and the craft is unbelievable. To be able to stand at the front of the boat with the ocean zipping underneath you is awesome. The craft also has a full bar and nice bathrooms, completely enhancing the experience. On top of that, they offer the jackets for wear in case you get cold, which is quite often the case. A MUST DO in San Francisco!"
