San Francisco Bay Cruise
San Francisco Bay Cruise has various departures, so there is always a cruise convenient to your sightseeing schedule. The San Francisco Bay Cruise tour takes about an hour navigating the waters of the San Francisco Bay. Departing from the Pier, you’ll start your bay cruise from the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf, sailing past Aquatic Park, where swimmers brave the cold ocean water, and Hyde Street Pier, home to historic vessels. Cruising west, towards the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll take in Fort Mason and the Marina district. Further west are former army installations, Crissy Field, a historic army airfield now turned grassy promenade, and the Presidio, offering forests, trails, views, and architecture.
The highlight of your vacation just may be sailing directly underneath the 4200 foot span of the 746 foot tall Golden Gate Bridge. As you head back, you’ll cruise past the breathtaking wildlife reserves of the Marin Headlands and quaint town of Sausalito. The San Francisco Bay Cruise travels between Angel Island (on your left) and the infamous Alcatraz Island, former home to America’s most notorious criminals. On your way back to the dock, you’ll see the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and Coit Tower perched on top of Telegraph Hill.
A full bar with drinks, snacks, and merchandise are also available. This San Francisco Bay Cruise is an ideal way to enjoy spectacular views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge! No San Francisco vacation is complete without a cruise on the bay.
