Golden Gate Bay Cruise - Red & White

A $28.00 value - Included with your Go San Francisco Card!

Celebrate with the Red and White Fleet the 70-year anniversary of San Francisco's original bay cruise with fantastic up-close views of the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge! Make your trip to San Francisco complete with a 1-hour Golden Gate Bay Cruise. Depart Fisherman's Wharf and cruise along the North Beach shoreline past Aquatic Park, Hyde Street Pier, and the ships of the National Maritime Historic Park.

The ship sails directly under the Golden Gate Bridge, providing spectacular views of this massive span. As you steam back into the Bay, you sail past the Marin County town of Sausalito and Angel Island State Park. Turning back toward San Francisco, the infamous island of Alcatraz appears on the horizon. Sailing back into Fisherman's Wharf, you see and hear the barking sea lions of Pier 39 and view the SS Jeremiah O'Brien and USS Pampanito, both veterans of WWII.

Foreign language audio options include: Hindi, English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Russian, Thai, Taiwanese, Veitnamese, Arabic, Hebrew, and Indonesian.
