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.
What to Expect

For this San Francisco Bay cruise, use your ticket up to one year after booking. Plan a time to go during a visit to the city when the weather is best, or save it for a spontaneous cruise.

As you go, listen to the audio commentary that fills you in on landmarks and San Francisco history. Catch sight of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and even Angel Island. Your cruise heads out to Sausalito and then back.

Cruising the Bay

Perfect way to see the Golden Gate Bridge from below. Each person is provided with headsets for a self-guided listen tour of the San Francisco area as your cruise the bay. One of our favorite activities while in San Fran.

I took a day cruise. Don't know about the evening cruise. I don't think your allowed to bring your own wine on board. The board was not over crowded. Plenty of room. Have fun.

You might enjoy the cruise and tour to Alcatraz. It's very interesting. The two hour day cruise passes by it.
