Overview
This San Francisco boat tour takes you to see more than 10 top attractions from a very different vantage point than bus, bike, or walking tours. Set out on the San Francisco Bay aboard an RIB (rigid inflatable boat), and listen as your guide tells you interesting facts about the city as you cruise. Plus, a short duration time and multiple tour times make it easy to fit this tour into your sightseeing schedule.
What to Expect
This San Francisco boat tour takes off from Pier 39. Get suited up in weather gear before heading out. Your group is limited to 12 people to ensure an intimate experience.

Your guide takes you past main San Francisco attractions such as Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, the Port of Oakland, and Coit Tower. Listen to stories about the area’s history, people, and culture. Snap photos from vantage points on the water, which gives you better photos than if you were to take them from land.

This boat tour of San Francisco drops you back off at Pier 39. You can choose to explore here on your own if you wish.

Beautiful Way to See San Francisco

We didn't have much time in San Francisco and wanted a tour that would be fun but not too long. We also didn't want to be on a boat with 40 people - so this was absolutely perfect. It was a such a beautiful way...More

Very fun boat tour. Captain Brian gave us time to stop and take photos, explained everything and happy to answer any questions. The gear kept us dry and warm as it did get a bit chilly on the water. It was us and a family...More
