See the San Francisco Bay from the water on a 3-hour dinner cruise that includes a 4-course meal, live music, and dancing. Your dinner consists of gourmet dishes prepared fresh on board with top local ingredients. Soak in views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Sausalito, and the city skyline while celebrating a special occasion or spending a romantic evening out with your loved one.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Embarcadero’s Pier 3 to board your spacious boat for the cruise.

Set out on the bay and have time to purchase a drink from the bar before heading to your table for your 4-course dinner. This fine-dining experience has a Californian flair with dishes that may feature local ingredients like a salad with watermelon and arugula, crab gazpacho, chipotle short ribs, and berry parfait (sample menu below).

The live band starts up the dance music after dinner, playing a range of classic tunes and Top 40 hits. From the exterior deck or interior cabin, view landmarks such as Alcatraz Island and the Bay Bridge, and cruise underneath the Golden Gate Bridge within sight of Sausalito and Tiburon.

Your cruise ends back at the pier.

Nothing special. Salad tired. Soup lukewarm. Chicken breast was quite nice. Service well below par and had to pour our wine for whole evening. For the price, couldn’t recommend.
