San Francisco Bridge-to-Bridge Cruise
From US$42.00
From the Golden Gate to the Bay Bridge, this sightseeing ferry takes you across the San Francisco Bay for the best views of the city’s iconic attractions. An audio headset lets you choose to learn about the sights, or you can talk with family and friends as you sail by Alcatraz, under the Golden Gate, and past unobstructed views of the city skyline. Ticket is valid for any date one year after purchase.
What to Expect
Make your way to Fisherman’s Wharf to board your sightseeing ferry, which is equipped with indoor and outdoor spaces, a restroom, and a snack-and-drink bar. Grab an audio tour headset on the way in, and then set off across the San Francisco Bay.

Pass by Alcatraz Island, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and past unobstructed views of the San Francisco skyline. Your audio tour informs you about the construction of two of San Francisco’s famous bridges, as well as the city’s famed architecture as you cruise through the bay.

Other sights include Coit Tower, the Transamerica Pyramid, the Bay Bridge, and AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play.

Your guided tour concludes at the original departure point.
