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.

I enjoyed the tour very much. It was very hot that day, so when we got stuck in traffic for 10-20 minutes, it was not very comfortable sitting at upper deck. I purchased the premium ticket to have second tour at night, but in month of June, 6:30 pm is still full Sun time, so second tour was not anything different than first one.

I arrived three hours early and asked the girl at the gate “whether it would behoove me to go now or wait until my time slot.” She was very friendly and said i could go anytime but that time I would lose half of my paid for time and would only go under one bridge. She was very friendly and said I could get refunded the $10 difference. She said I could pick anytime I wanted. The Captain of the boat was there and was super friendly also. I will always recommend the “Red n White Fleet” to my friends. Our overall trip was so nice the girl at the concession stand was so nice. I also went on the BIG BUS tour and heard a couple asking about tours and I chimed in to recommend your tour. Thank you so much.

The staff were extremely friendly. The boat was very convenient and safe for family (we went with an infant and felt safe). Highly recommended. The location is not hard to find either. The parking near the Fisherman's Wharf is expensive and might have hard to find. So prepare to walk a few blocks depending on where you get the parking. Look for street side parking. They are cheaper than the parking garage.
