In light of the Corona Virus/Covid-19, we have temporarily suspended tours through Sunday, May 31st to do our part to help stem any spread of the virus.

Please know that in almost 30 years of business on the Bay, customer safety and satisfaction has always been our #1 goal, and this time is no different. Considering the scale of this health issue, it becomes clear that Adventure Cat needs to take this pause to help the efforts of “flattening the curve”, and to gauge the situation over the coming weeks, as its new to the world.

We will continue to monitor the situation and act appropriately, and when the time is right, we look forward to sailing again with you soon!  Feel free to call us with questions in the meantime, 800-498-4228 or Thank you for your business, patience and loyalty.

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.
