What people are saying about Sausalito

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 53 reviews

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.

My family and I had an amazing time of the Bridge-to-Bridge cruise. The boats were nice and clean and the staff was very nice. For the ladies or anyone with long hair, I definitely recommend wearing a hat or beanie, as it can get very windy.

Came from Seattle, this ride is really cool! Showed the city views and tells you about history of the city.

Good choice to take this cruise tour. Not too long and very nice view.

Great interesting narration. Comfortable seating inside and out.
