Following a nearly 75-year-old tradition, Golden Gate Bay Cruises depart from Pier 43 1/2 for a scenic jaunt that passes under the infamous bridge and around Alcatraz Island. Headsets offer multilingual narration in 12 languages during the 60-minute tour, apprising tour-takers of the history of San Francisco and Alcatraz. Tour vessels depart 8–12 times daily, starting at 10 a.m. Snacks and drinks from a full bar are available for purchase onboard.

Red and White Fleet

Red and White Fleet’s inaugural launch in 1892 came courtesy of founder Thomas Crowley, a 17-year-old seafarer whose vision has since spawned one of the Bay Area’s most sought-after guided sightsees. The placid shores of Fisherman’s Wharf host a bobbing quartet of wave-riding vessels, each crewed by a savvy staff of sailors versed in the Bay’s stunning maritime marvels, including rock seals, easily recognized by their Dee Snider wigs and Flying V guitars.

Other tours with Red and White Fleet include the Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise, which sails beneath the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridges, its iconic red-and-white boats dwarfed by the imposing structures. Passengers can venture onto the open-air deck to take in unobstructed views of the skyline, or gaze through large windows within indoor cabins furnished with plush seating and a full-service bar. A host of other tours is available; click here to view the full schedule.
