Returns to original departure point
The symbol of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, is best seen from the water. This bridge-to-bridge boat tour departing from Fisherman’s Wharf provides unbeatable views of this architectural icon. Cruise underneath the red spires as well as under its east-side counterpart, the Bay Bridge.

After boarding the boat, perhaps buy a snack or a drink from the full bar (own expense; you are also free to bring food on board). Then enjoy the scenery as your captain takes you across San Francisco Bay, passing by Alcatraz Island. Admire landmarks like Coit Tower, the Ferry Building, the Transamerica Pyramid, and the Palace of Fine Arts, and see where the wide Pacific meets the narrow entrance to the bay.

During the cruise, listen to recorded commentary about the construction of the bridges and San Francisco’s geology and famed architecture. Your tour ends when you return to the pier.

Note: Restrooms are available on board the boat, which provides both indoor and outdoor spaces for your comfort. This is an open ticket, valid for one-time use on any day this cruise operates within one year from your purchase date.

We had a great time! The trip was perfect. The only complaint I have is I that it was difficult to hear the tour information because the wind was so loud. But going under the Golden Gate Bridge was exciting and my family enjoyed every minute of it!

Check in was easy and Jonah was very nice! The views were fabulous! We went in the evening so we got to see the sun begin to set and it was beautiful. It was very windy so bring a jacket or sweatshirt. The one downside - they closed the bathrooms early so we couldn’t use them before we disembarked!

A very nice tour of the San Francisco Bay Area. Although I expected a little more and up close experience of Sausalito and Tiburon, but there were plenty of other sights to see that We really enjoyed. Will do it again soon.
