Iconic views!

Did the twilight cruise which was very exciting. Had a lovely buffet dinner onboard. Good variety of food, all fresh and replenished constantly. Refreshments also available. Lovely watching the day turn into night to get great photos of the iconic features around the bay.

Enjoyable hour and half view of Golden Gate Bay Bridges

Great way to spend a couple of hours and get up close to the bridge

Buy a ticket and just turn up at whatever sailing time suits you the best. get to see Alcatraz and turn around actually underneath the Golden Gate Bridge for the return journey. Good audio info. during the trip.

Must do when in the bay

First time on a boat cruise while visiting the Bay and I was not disappointed. We got to see San Francisco in a way we never did before. It was amazing. My only complaint is parking, we had to pay a steep parking tab and...More

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.
