Full description

See both the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on a single boat tour with personal headphone audio included. Explore San Francisco's famous landmarks, history, natural history, architecture, and Native American culture on board this unique bay cruise. During the 90-minute round trip cruise you'll depart from Fisherman's Wharf, one of the city's busiest tourist attractions. From there, sail under the Golden Gate Bridge. Completed in 1937, the Golden Gate is one of the world's most famous and beautiful bridges, and was at one point the largest suspension bridge in the world. Cruise past Alcatraz Island, once home of one of the world's most infamous prisons, and take the chance to enjoy the stunning San Francisco waterfront. The boat will pass along the harbor before heading under the colossal San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Then it's time to head back to the charming city of San Francisco by the sea.

We had a blast on this cruise! Luckily we thought to bring very warm coats, because it was FREEZING and the wind wanted to blow up over. Unfortunately the Golden Gate Bridge was so fogged in that we could barely see it (it didn't even look red!), but it was sunny and nice with a blue sky over at the Bay Bridge - typical SF weather in the fall. We were thrilled to find a bar inside with warm drinks - Irish coffee and adult (spiked) hot cocoa hit the spot!

We booked online for the red and white fleet cruise that took you from fisherman's wharf to the Golden gate bridge towards alcatraz and under the bay bridge. Booking online and using the app is super easy! You won't be disappointed! The weather is unpredictable we caught the "marine fog weather" going towards the Golden gate Bridge so we could only see under it close up and we were lucky it cleared up after alcatraz to enjoy the rest of the boat ride. It is very clean inside and outside they also have clean restrooms! It has a bartender on the first level to serve drinks and snacks for sale. There's plenty of room and seating for everyone to enjoy the views from all angles!!! Best hour and a half spent! you have to experience it for yourself to appreciate the bay area for its true beauty!!!!

It was beautiful. Once you're out of the harbor (and the weather cooperates), it's not so windy anymore. The commentary was very exciting and beautifully designed. It was really cool to see the two bridges so close. We had a lot of fun and were able to take nice photos. Everything was very easy to find too. Staff also super nice
