  • Start your day right by combining a sightseeing cruise with brunch

  • Keep an eye out for dolphins, seals, and other marine life
What to Expect
Make your own way to the Embarcadero to board the spacious boat for your brunch cruise. The crew provides sparkling wine and mimosas as you set out on the waters of San Francisco Bay. Sail past Alcatraz Island, and take in sweeping views of the San Francisco waterfront, Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, the Bay Bridge, and the towns of Sausalito and Tiburon. The brunch buffet consists of a variety of hot and cold dishes accompanied by coffee, tea, juice, soft drinks, and sparkling wine. Additional beverages are available for purchase at the cash bar, and live music plays on deck. Warm layers are recommended as temperatures can drop on the water. Your boat returns to the Embarcadero in time for you to have the rest of the day free to explore the city.

This was a lovely event. Did it on a Sunday, and the weather was nice, no fog, no clouds. The food was quite good actually, better than I was expecting. Look a good Sunday brunch at a fine resort. Small carving station, hot and cold dishes. Bottomless mimosas. :) They

We had plenty of time so we decided to walk about 2 miles from our hotel to Pier 3 and it was very difficult to find, even using maps app. We were the last to arrive and almost missed the boat. Once arrived, the staff was very sweet and tried to calm our frustrations. The vessel
