Golden Gate Bay Cruise
Want to experience San Francisco's must-do attraction? Take the 60-minute Golden Gate Bay Cruise and you'll see why it's the perfect introduction to San Francisco. This fully narrated one-hour cruise loops around San Francisco Bay, sailing next to Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge!
Departing from Pier 43 in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, you'll sail past the iconic San Francisco skyline with great views over the lively neighbourhood of North Beach and San Francisco Maritime National Park. Then as we head west toward the Golden Gate Bridge, we'll cruise past Fort Mason and the Marina District which was devastated in the 1989 earthquake.
Don't miss incredible photo opportunities when we sail directly beneath the massive 1,260m span of the Golden Gate Bridge. Then as we steam back into the bay, we'll travel past the Nature Reserves of the Marin Headlands and the legendary town of Sausalito, with its offbeat vibe. Then with Angel Island State Park to our left, we'll slowly cruise around the island of Alcatraz. On your way back to Fisherman's Wharf, look out for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and Coit Tower. After a full hour of exciting sights, the barking sea lions at Pier 39 will welcome you back to Pier 43.
