  • English English
  • 1.5 hours

Drift along San Francisco Bay on a 1.5-hour cruise and discover the imposing Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge, built just six months later, and then admire the famous Alcatraz Island and the city’s main skyscrapers.

Itinerary

Embark at Pier 43 ½, in the center of Fisherman’s Wharf, and relax on a 1.5-hour cruise along the picturesque San Francisco Bay.

Travel past North Beach, Hide Street Pier, San Francisco Maritime National Park, Fort Mason and Marina District, areas which were devastated during the 1989 earthquake. Next, you will see Crissy Fields and The Presidio, a former U.S Army fort which was reconstructed into a charming park.

One of the highlights of the tour is when you sail under the massive Golden Gate Bridge, one of the most famous suspension bridges in the world, which stands 227 meters high.

Return to San Francisco Bay and admire the wild Marin Headlands and sail around the small Alcatraz Island, one of the most famous prisons in the world.

The cruise continues towards Treasure Island and beneath the colossal Bay Bridge, which connects San Francisco and Oakland. Admire San Francisco’s skyline and detect the city’s main buildings, including Coit Tower, Ferry Building, Transamerica Pyramid, AT&T Park (home of the Giants Baseball team) and the Palace of Fine Arts, among many others.

After a one and a half hour cruise, head back to Pier 43 ½.
