Sit back and relax with included snacks and a flight of four tastings of local red or white wine, poured by an expert wine steward. Additional beverages are available for purchase at the full bar. The typical cruise route leaves Pier 39 and travels to the Golden Gate Bridge. Then, sail around historic Alcatraz, past the ferry building, and along the San Francisco skyline.
