Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Bridge-to-Bridge Cruise

San Francisco Bridge to Bridge Cruise

The symbol of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, is best seen from the water. This bridge-to-bridge boat tour departing from Fisherman’s Wharf provides unbeatable views of this architectural icon. Cruise underneath the red spires as well as under its east-side counterpart, the Bay Bridge.

After boarding the boat, perhaps buy a snack or a drink from the full bar (own expense; you are also free to bring food on board). Then enjoy the scenery as your captain takes you across San Francisco Bay, passing by Alcatraz Island. Admire landmarks like Coit Tower, the Ferry Building, the Transamerica Pyramid, and the Palace of Fine Arts, and see where the wide Pacific meets the narrow entrance to the bay.

As you head the other way to the Bay Bridge, which connects San Francisco to Oakland and Berkeley, catch sight of Treasure Island and AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play. During the cruise, listen to recorded commentary about the construction of the bridges and San Francisco’s geology and famed architecture. Your tour ends when you return to the pier.

Note: Restrooms are available on board the boat, which provides both indoor and outdoor spaces for your comfort. This is an open ticket, valid for one-time use on any day this cruise operates within one year from your purchase date.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Even though the weather was rainy and windy the day we went out on this cruise it was a great experience to be able to see both bridges and to cruise under them both as well. Also some wonderful views of Alcatraz and the city of San Francisco. The self guided headset that you get on the boat, is very informative and gives you a wonderful insight to the Bridges and the City etc. Would highly recommend this tour on any given day, as you cant pick the weather. This was our third time to San Francisco ..we have now biked the Golden Gate ...walked it and cruised under it.
