Discover the sights of San Francisco Bay from the water on a traditional sailboat cruise. On your classic double-masted boat, glide past Alcatraz Island, Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island, hearing commentary about each location from your attentive captain. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for great photos without the hassle of huge crowds, and you’ll save money with two included drinks.
  • Sail from Pier 39 across San Francisco Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge 
  • Enjoy a cruise on a classic, teak-wood boat with two masts 
  • View Alcatraz Island, Sausalito, and Angel Island up close
  • Sip two included glasses of beer, wine, or soft drink
What to Expect
Meet your captain and first mate after making your way to Pier 39, then step on board the elegant double-masted sailboat. Receive a safety briefing and boat orientation, then take in the sights as your captain departs from the marina. You might even see sea lions or dolphins in the bay. Get great photo ops of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, Sausalito, and Angel Island, and see the Bay Bridge from a new perspective. Your captain sails parallel to the Golden Gate Bridge, then returns to Pier 39 on a route that offers sweeping views of the San Francisco waterfront. Enjoy two included drinks, with a choice of beer, wine, soft drinks, or water. The boat accommodates a maximum of 28 passengers for a more intimate cruise.
