Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

476 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

Coit Tower is located in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. At 210' tall it is a prominent feature and provides panoramic views of Fishermen's Wharf, San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. A nonresident elevator fee for adults/children of $8/$5 is collected. It was built with money left by Lillie Hitchchock Coit (1843-1929), mainly as a result of her lifelong admiration and dedication to the volunteer fire fighters of San Francisco. She personally participated in fire fighting efforts, as well as, supporting fire fighting efforts of five major fires which occurred in San Francisco's history including the earthquake & fire of 1906. Coit Tower was built between 1923-33 and is on the national register of Historic Places. Twenty-five artists participated in the painting of murals in the interior. The murals are of the American Social Realism styles featuring everyday working people. One notable artist was Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr..

I walked to this location from my hotel. Well, I also saw it at night through my window. It's nice to get to the top and have those views of the city, it was a sunny day for me.

We very much enjoyed the hike up the hills, viewing the murals within, and basking in the shady grass outside. While an amazing piece of architecture with stunning views of the city, we were underwhelmed by the pricing at the tower to take the elevator up (so we didn't). Worth the walk if you have time and stamina, but don't set your expectations too high :)

Pretty good views of the city from here. I discovered something missing though - the city has removed the statue of Christopher Columbus.

We really enjoyed this spot. Line wasn’t too long and we weren’t rushed once we got to the top. Definitely make a stop here when visiting.
