San Francisco Cruise Guide

San Francisco’s cruise port terminal is located at the western end of San Francisco Bay, midway between the Fisherman's Wharf and the Bay Bridge. The Port of San Francisco hosts over 300,000 passengers annually at the James R. Herman (Pier 27) and Pier 35 cruise terminals.

The city itself has a lot to offer, with a diverse range of fashion, art, museums, and food. Travel east to the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood for shopping and dining. Visit the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park to see ships that sailed more than a century ago. Enter the Golden Gate Park to visit de Young Museum, filled with art, costumes and textiles. Explore botanical gardens, play golf or tennis, and take a walk through the Japanese Tea Garden. End your day in the city by taking in some of the best views of the Bay from the famous Golden Gate Bridge.

Escape to Alcatraz home of the infamous and abandoned island prison, and discover how it earned a reputation as a cold and unforgiving place. Or for a different kind of escape, travel north to tall redwoods in Muir Woods, and unwind at famous Napa and Sonoma wineries. There’s something for everyone in San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods.
