What to Expect

Meet for this San Francisco Bay cruise at Fisherman’s Wharf. Arrive 30 minutes before your tour time and check in at Pier 43.

Once you board your boat and the boat glides out into the bay, relax while you listen to your captain’s commentary as you cruise. Stay indoors in the heat or head outside to the viewing decks. 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.
