Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

475 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

An outstanding park!! rated one of the best I've experienced!! In my top 3 with NYC- Central Park, Vancouver's - Stanley Park & now Golden gate park!! The only negative, the HOMELESS in the public bathrooms is intimidating and when you need to use a bathroom this takes away from the overall peaceful experience.

Same review as the previous person. This is an amazing place and the amazing thing about it was in only 15 minutes, in broad daylight on a relatively crowded strip someone smashed into the back window of our rental car and took my girlfriends purse containing her drivers license, green card and passport (no cash). I read online there are literally 2-3 break-ins *per day* in Golden Gate Park (and a huge, huge number across the city every day) . Sadly our two days in San Francisco were basically ruined by a 15 minute stop to Golden Gate Park.

This is a beautiful park but very dangerous. San Francisco in general has a big problem with car vandalism, and this site is one of the main places where the thieves target their victims. I do not recommend to rent a car while visiting San Francisco if you do it please take everything with you, they will smash your windows. This just happened to me.

This park is so beautiful, you could easily walk through here multiple times a trip. There was lots to see, parking was easy the earlier you got there, and it was always full of life. Everyone was a great mask wearer! Hardest part is sharing the road, honestly - we did minimal driving in the park and stuck to the paved paths, and there was always a bike, skateboarder, or runner to watch out for.

Stayed here with my boyfriend and can’t recommend this place enough. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but the hotel is secure, quiet and beautiful. Had dinner and drinks at their rooftop bar (Charmaine’s) and it was stunning. The lobby and rooms are stylish and comfy. The staff are friendly and helpful. Especially Diane, Russell and Herman! Will definitely be back.
