You’ll sail past the city skyline, including views of downtown, Fort Mason, the Marina district, Fort Point, and Presidio National Park. You’ll take in the imposing Golden Gate Bridge from below and creep up along the back of Alcatraz Island. Background views of Sausalito, Tiburon, and Angel Island add to the appeal. 

With the optional audio headset, you can learn about this city’s rich cultural history as you cruise past some of the area’s most famous landmarks. 

Offered in 16 languages.

Current Schedule here.

Voucher valid for any sailing within 365 days from your date of purchase, just arrive at Pier 43 ½ at Fisherman’s Wharf 30 minutes prior to your preferred sailing time. 


Be sure to dress warmly for the outside decks. Depending on the forecast, consider hats, jackets, layers, and even gloves. San Francisco is known to have cool evening weather and being out on the water will only magnify things. But it’s more fun to be soaking up the views and the great atmosphere than it is to worry about being underdressed. 

Upon purchase, you will receive an email Voucher showing your purchase. The Voucher will need to be presented on your phone at the Red & White ticket window at Pier 43&½. 

Until further notice, you have to get a short-term reservation. This is usually for the next boat, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, they are limiting departure capacity. This means that you may have to wait for a second departure (which may not be available at the very end of the day).

Tours are free for kids under age 5.
