Cruising the Bay

Perfect way to see the Golden Gate Bridge from below. Each person is provided with headsets for a self-guided listen tour of the San Francisco area as your cruise the bay. One of our favorite activities while in San Fran.

I took a day cruise. Don't know about the evening cruise. I don't think your allowed to bring your own wine on board. The board was not over crowded. Plenty of room. Have fun.

You might enjoy the cruise and tour to Alcatraz. It's very interesting. The two hour day cruise passes by it.
