From either spot, during this cruise you’ll enjoy outstanding views as you pass by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge, plus some of San Francisco’s historic landmarks.

Enjoy a light onboard buffet of appetizers—including spinach puff pastry rolls, roast beef sliders, chicken curry wraps, sliced fruit, and cookies—and a complimentary beer or wine from the bar.

When your cruise ends, your boat docks back at Pier 43.

It is great for kids. As another reader suggests, be sure to take jackets as it is always cold going under the Golden Gate and in the Bay in general.
