2-Hour Sunset Sail on the San Francisco Bay

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Whether you want to kick off a fabulous date night or wrap up an enjoyable afternoon, this two-hour sunset sail is just the ticket. Step aboard the gorgeous traditional vessel to take in the sights at the most bewitching time of day. You'll sail past Alcatraz, hug the coast at Sausalito and experience the full grandeur of the Golden Gate Bridge. Sip two servings of your choice of included beer, wine, soda or water as Privateer cruises along the spectacular San Francisco cityscape, while the sun sets and the lights of the city come to twinkling life.
  • Cruise across the beautiful San Francisco Bay on a memorable 2-hour sail
  • See Alcatraz, Angel Island, Sausalito and the Golden Gate from the water
  • Savor complimentary glasses of wine, beer or soda while watching the sunset
  • Snap selfies backed by some of the Bay Area’s most picturesque sights
What to Expect
You’ll begin your cruise at Pier 39, where you’ll meet your captain and first mate. There, you'll board the sailboat Privateer and join a small group of no more than 28 passengers.   During the cruise, you can enjoy two drinks—your choice of beer, wine or soda—as you glide through the calm waters of the San Francisco Bay. You'll sail past Alcatraz and Angel island and see both spans of the Bay Bridge separated by the man-made Treasure Island. As you journey north, take in the vibrant green hillsides of Marin County and the houseboat communities of Sausalito. Then, your captain will circle back toward Pier 39 and the San Francisco waterfront passing the Golden Gate Bridge as the sun sets into the Pacific. It’s the ideal time take a snapshot to remember your trip.

The crew was amazing and made the trip so much fun! Everyone was very personable offering drinks, coats, blankets, etc. Sailing on the bay has always been a dream of mine and words can not describe how happy I am with this tour.

This was our 3rd year with these guys and they never disappoint. We will continue our tradition! This time our 9yr old daughter joined us, and now she is hooked!

I wrote to SF Sailing when they asked how my trip with my family went, but they didn't respond after I told them. So I'll write it here why I would NEVER go on another trip with them: -captain didn't say more than 2 sentences...More
