Lovely trip - staff friendly and chatty with info of the area and surrounds - trip probably too long 90 mins as very cold despite warm jackets - sail out to Golden Gate Bridge and back A lot more people on board than expected so not a lot of seating available

We got an excellent view of the sea lions getting on and off of the catamaran, and that was an unexpected bonus. He catamaran captain and staff let people move around and we all got excellent pics and wonderful views of the bridge. Obviously it’s cold on the water so it’s important to bundle up. If I had one complaint it would be that we set out kind of early, went out to the bridge and right back in again so the view was cut short. The sunset was very colorful but that’s no one’s fault. Before we went into the slip the captain did turn the boat around so we could see the sunset so that part was kind of cool.

This was overall a good experience and the crew was great, but I wouldn’t call this a “luxury” experience. The catamaran is very full and overall not in really great condition. Also, not their fault, but the wind and cold were brutal - we stayed hunkered in the cabin as did a lot of other folks. It was too cold to really enjoy the 1 complimentary drink. In hindsight, I would have probably just booked the cheaper ferry cruise. That being said, this was overall a good experience.
