San Francisco Holiday Cruises

San Francisco Holiday Cruises

San Francisco is a city that knows how to celebrate the holidays. Making use of two of its best offerings—stunning bay views and delicious food—these holiday cruises are a fantastic way to enjoy a special time of year. Here are your options.

Fourth of July

Celebrate Independence Day onboard a fun dinner cruise serving California cuisine. Hop on a boat such as the California Hornblower or San Francisco Spirit to sail past major San Francisco sights before parking in the perfect spot to view the night’s firework from the water.


If skipping the cooking and relaxing out on the water is your ideal Thanksgiving day, you can take in the views while chefs and crew onboard prepare the big meal. A traditional turkey dinner is typically served as you cruise past sights including Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge.


Sip Champagne onboard as you listen to holiday tunes on a cruise across the San Francisco Bay. Available on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, these bay cruises typically run at about three hours and serve either a buffet-style or 3-course dinner with a festive ambiance and incredible views of the San Francisco Bay Area.

New Year's Eve

Get a prime view of the New Year’s Eve fireworks and see them reflect on the water as you sail around the bay on a New Year’s cruise. An elegant dinner is typically followed by drinks and dancing, with some cruises offering an open bar.
