    Weather Dependent
    The activity usually runs in light rain and other moderate weather conditions, but your experience provider may cancel the activity up to an hour before the start time in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. If your provider cancels the event, you will be allowed to reschedule your experience or receive credit for a future event.
    What To Wear
    Participants are advised to wear jeans, a tee-shirt or sweatshirt, tennis shoes and to bring a jacket. If it's a special occasion, you can certainly dress up, just note that soft-soled shoes are recommended. Jackets are available on board, but yours will be much more stylish.

    For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include requiring guests to bring and wear a mask to enter. They will be selling sealed beverages (non-alcoholic, beer, etc.) on their experiences. At this time, the bar is credit card only. Additionally, no outside food or beverages will be allowed on their tours.

    What is the difference between a catamaran and a real sailboat?
    A catamaran has two hulls instead of one, the result is a more stable ride. It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Dune Buggy.
    Will I get seasick?
    Since catamarans are more stable, most people don't have any problems. However, if you are very susceptible to sickness, you may want to take seasick pills or wear a patch.
    Will I get wet?
    If you're outside on the trampolines, there is a pretty good chance you'll get wet.  If you really don't want to get wet, you can stay in the cabin.  With a 360 degree view, you won't miss a single thing.
    How fast does the Adventure Cat 2 go?
    Under sail, the average speed is 8-12 knots (approximately 9-13 MPH).

    “Great experience ! The staff on the boat were so kind and made us feel very safe with their extensive safety precautions. The capacity was kept at 25% of normal capacity in order to provide adequate social distancing. The views were spectacular and the team helped us to take some great photos under the golden gate. I would highly recommend and especially at the moment. Such a great way to enjoy the bay and get out of the house while remaining safe.”

    “Highly rec”
    “Our catamaran adventure was more than we could have imagined. The crew was wonderful and the ship was beautiful. I would absolutely recommend this experience for anyone who loves the water. I did want to mention that I was surprised that when I saw their price on the gate for $10 cheaper than what I paid with you. This was rather disappointing as I have been recommending you to all my friends. This might be something you could research in your future experiences. Thank you so much”
    “The experience was everything we wanted, beautiful, engaging and memorable.”
    “Thanks to a co-worker who purchased a gift for me through Cloud 9 Living, I experienced a thrilling 1.5 hour adventure sailing on a catamaran on San Francisco Bay.”
