Question: How many people can the yacht seat comfortably?

We have two different sized yachts available for cruises on San Francisco Bay. The first, named “The Empress”, is the larger of our yachts. It has three different decks that offer comfortable dining areas for up to 150 guests, as well as a dance floor and breathtaking views from many angles. This yacht is perfect for sightseeing cruises with large groups, wedding ceremonies, corporate events and private parties for any occasion.

Our second, smaller yacht is called “The Golden Gate Empress”. This yacht can comfortably fit up to 83 guests. It has an expansive upper deck for sightseeing and very comfortable amenities inside, perfect for dining and enjoying the company of your guests. This yacht is ideal for weddings, elite corporate events, private parties and smaller family gatherings.

Larger yachts for parties of 500-2000 guests are also available by earlier order.
