About this San Francisco tour
Begin your experience sailing west towards the Golden Gate Bridge from Pier 43 1/2. Travel past Fort Mason and the Marina District which was greatly impacted by the 1989 earthquake. Next, enjoy views of Crissy Field and the lush hillsides of the Presidio. Both former top army installations, they are now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Take advantage of some of the best photo opportunities as you sail directly under the massive 4,200-foot span of the 746-foot tall Golden Gate Bridge.
As you sail back into the Bay, travel past the wildlife reserves of the Marin Headlands and the legendary town of Sausalito, once home to the 1960's flower generation. With Angel Island State Park to your left, slowly cruise around the infamous Alcatraz Island. On your way back to Fisherman's Wharf, see the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and Coit Tower.
A full bar with drinks, snacks, and merchandise is available aboard to enhance your experience. After a full hour of witnessing the best sights, the barking sea lions at Pier 39 welcome you back to Pier 43 1/2.
