Get a look at San Francisco’s breathtaking skyline, waterfront, and wildlife from the water as you cruise under the majestic Golden Gate Bridge and circle notorious Alcatraz Island.
Set sail from historic Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy breathtaking views of the City by the Bay. Pass by the lively seafood restaurants and parks of North Beach and the beach and bathhouse of the Aquatic Park Historic District. Check out the red-roofed barracks and buildings of Fort Mason and the pastel-colored homes of the waterfront Marina Districts as you approach the massive 4,200-foot (1,280 m) span of the Golden Gate Bridge. Keep your camera handy—you cruise right underneath this iconic and impressive city symbol.
As you make your way across the bay, the colorful history of the city is revealed through award-winning narration from a personal, wireless headset. Be on the lookout for aquatic wildlife including seagulls, pelicans, and sea lions. You may even be lucky enough to spot a harbor porpoise or whale.
Admire the rugged beauty of the Marin Headlands wildlife reserves and the waterfront charm of picturesque Sausalito. Slowly circle Alcatraz Island, once the involuntary residence of the nation’s most infamous criminals, including Al Capone and George “Machine Gun” Kelly, and see the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in the distance as you make your way back to the pier to disembark.
