Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Cruise the bay—with a drink and appetizers—when the sun sets and views light up.
Make your way to the pier at Fisherman's Wharf in time for your chosen departure time (depending on the season). Enjoy live commentary by the captain and listen to relaxing background music as you sip your complimentary beverage from the bar and watch the sights pass by on San Francisco Bay.
During your sunset or twilight cruise, head to the light appetizer buffet to enjoy spinach puff pastry rolls; roast beef sliders; crudités and an antipasto patter; chicken curry wrap; sliced fruit and gourmet cheeses and a cookie platter. You can purchase more drinks at the full bar on board.
All cruise vessels operate on bio-diesel — a renewable energy source — and offer heated indoor spaces or outdoor viewing decks. There is no assigned seating or formal dress required during this relaxing evening cruise.
Sunset Bay Cruise:If you embark during late March through early November, you’ll watch the sun setting over the the Pacific Ocean as you cruise toward the Marin Headlands and past the Golden Gate Bridge. Glide past Alcatraz, Angel Island and the shorelines of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito. On your return to Fisherman's Wharf you'll see many more notable sights, including the Presidio, the Marina District and Fort Mason.
Twilight Cruise:In the winter, the cruise makes the most of San Francisco’s spectacular city lights on a twilight tour. After the sun sets over the horizon, you'll glide past San Francisco's modern skyscrapers, historic landmarks, the infamous Alcatraz Island and both the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. Listen to live guitar entertainment while enjoying the illuminated skyline — an unmissable San Francisco view.

Loved it! The musician, Eric, was wonderful. The appetizers were basic but tasty, we got a cool little video sent to us by a very friendly staff member, and even got a picture when we left. Great experience!
Tour was fab! We did the twilight cruise in Jan which meant there wasn't many people on it however the staff were still friendly and attentive. The musician was brill and gave the boat a nice atmosphere. The views were incredible and we got some stunning pictures. The souvenir gift at the end was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend and would definitely do this tour again when we return to beautiful San Francisco
What a gorgeous way to see the lights, bridges and Alcatraz... at night. Great music on the tour and the cocktail was delicious. Grateful to have a friend join me on this venture prior to our convention kicking off.

I loved this ride!!! Ours included a live singer, a free printed picture, a complimentary drink, and appetizers. So much fun. Would 100% go again. We got to go under the Golden Gate Bridge, past Alcatraz, through raccoon straight and by Angel Island.
