Golden Gate Bay Cruise
From US$33.00
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.
What to Expect

For this San Francisco Bay cruise, use your ticket up to one year after booking. Plan a time to go during a visit to the city when the weather is best, or save it for a spontaneous cruise.

Meet at Fisherman’s Wharf at Pier 43 to board your boat for a voyage across the bay.

As you go, listen to the audio commentary that fills you in on landmarks and San Francisco history. Catch sight of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and even Angel Island. Your cruise heads out to Sausalito and then back.

Your boat ride ends back at Pier 43 at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Great way to get a good view of ALL of San fransisco

If your going on this trip and not in a group, stand on the left hand side of the gate, they don't tell you this at the ticket office and make you queue up again. Saying that, it's well worth taking this trip as it...More

I took a day cruise. Don't know about the evening cruise. I don't think your allowed to bring your own wine on board. The board was not over crowded. Plenty of room. Have fun.
