Overview
Discover the sights of San Francisco Bay from the water on a traditional sailboat cruise. On your classic double-masted boat, glide past Alcatraz Island, Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island, hearing commentary about each location from your attentive captain. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for great photos without the hassle of huge crowds, and you’ll save money with two included drinks.
