Sunset Catamaran Cruise in San Francisco

If you want to be a ‘proper tourist’ in San Francisco you can’t miss a catamaran cruise at sunset.

I wasn’t keen at first and thought it was just a slightly classier version of a booze cruise. OK, I’m not going to lie, it was a classier version of a booze cruise and I loved it.

No words are necessary here. Just sit back and enjoy the view.

Excited to see the Golden Gate Bridge for the very first time

Don’t jump! Apparently the Golden Gate Bridge is the most popular suicide spot in the world

Looking like a sumo wrestler in the coats Adventure Cat provide. They might be huge but they’re toasty

This was an included activity as part of my Trek America Westerner 2 trip. We went with Adventure Cat Sailing Charters and it would usually cost $50. The day time cruise is only $20 but it’s well worth paying the extra to see the sky lit up with a golden glow. You get two drinks tokens with this price and some snacks onboard like cheese and crackers. See, I told you it was classy.

    Looks a lovely way to spend an evening. I love photographing cities from the water day or night (and cheese and crackers are classy enough for me!)

    Your pictures say it all. San Francisco is amazing! I remember getting its glimpses on a popular American TV Show of the 80s – Full House.

    Ooooh very nice. I’m not ashamed, I love any form of booze cruising. I took my kids on a Pirate Ship in Florida. The pirates entertained the kids, while parents enjoy unlimited beer and wine! Talk about family fun!

    Beautiful photos! San Fran is #1 on my wanderlist now and I do not know why I keep putting it off for further destinations. Your photos are making me want to go now!

    Oh, I love San Francisco. Everything is just there where you can have fun especially with your family. And yes, that Golden Gate Bridge should make your stay perfect if you visit that place. The view is just so beautiful and I want to go back to that place soon and this time, I’ll bring my whole family. Thanks for sharing this!
