Get ready to explore the coast of San Francisco from the water on this accessible day cruise. You’ll experience new views of the Golden Gate Bridge from the water below, and circle the famous island of Alcatraz.

You’ll board the boat via ramp, and there is a wheelchair accessible bathroom on each boat. Food is available for purchase at the cafe and bar onboard. Passengers can remain in the cabin, or head to the deck for outdoor cruising. The top deck is only accessible by stairs, but there are outdoor areas on the main deck as well. Audioguides are provided to passengers in over 16 languages.

The cruise will embark from pier 43.5 on Fisherman’s Wharf. It will head West and take you past the historic Italian neighborhood known as North Beach, and toward the Golden Gate Bridge, where you will have the chance to pass underneath and get a new perspective of one of the most famous bridges in the world. The boat will then cruise past the Marin headlands and Sausalito, where you’ll probably get to spot marine wildlife like seagulls, pelicans, and sea lions. You’ll then circle around the famous Alcatraz Island, which once housed the most dangerous prisoners in the country and has been the subject of many books and movies. As you head back to Fisherman’s Wharf you’ll get to take in views of the San Francisco Skyline and the architectural feat that is the Bay Bridge.
