About this San Francisco, California tour
Are you ready to see San Francisco from a different angle? Hop on the Adventure Cat catamaran, and sail around the San Francisco Bay in quiet style. You may wonder what the difference is between a catamaran and a sailboat. It's all about the hulls. Catamarans have two hulls, while sailboats have one. The extra hull means additional stability, and a smooth ride. You're also much less likely to get seasick on a catamaran.
Sail around Alcatraz Island, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and take in the majesty of the San Francisco skyline. Pick up a navigation guide to learn more about the city's landmarks. Want to feel like the captain of your own vessel? Ask and ye shall receive. The captain and crew are happy to let you or your little ones steer the boat. What a thrill!
Stroll the spacious deck, snap photos, and, if you prefer, have a seat inside our covered cabin and still enjoy outstanding views. Snacks, soda, beer, and wine are available for purchase. If you are the adventurous type, you might want to try a deck trampoline. When you sit or lie down on one, the netting allows you to experience the exhilarating feeling of having the waves rush underneath you. But be prepared you might get wet. Whatever your sailing style, you don't need to be a daredevil when you're aboard a catamaran, just hang out and enjoy a memorable ride.
Kite versus catamaran
In 2013, kite surfer Kai Lenny was part of an unusual race in the San Francisco Bay. He raced against a catamaran. The Hawaiian athlete took on the 72-foot Oracle Team USA'S America's Cup Catamaran. They raced from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz Island, the same route that the 2013 America's Cup competitors used, and part of the Adventure Cat's route. While Lenny led at the beginning, the catamaran ended up solidly defeating the kite surfer.
