Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise®
Sail under both the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in one spectacular cruise along San Francisco’s entire urban skyline, accompanied by our headphone audio with 12 language choices.
Along the way, explore San Francisco’s stunning landmarks like Alcatraz, Coit Tower, the Ferry Building, Transamerica Pyramid, Palace of Fine Arts, and many more. Our San Francisco bridge to bridge tours give you the opportunity to learn about this city’s unique natural history, architecture, and Native American culture through our audio tour. Other interesting aspects of the multilingual audio include details about the building of both bridges, the geology of San Francisco Bay and the earthquakes that have shaken San Francisco and require special seismic considerations in the designing of new structures. Sailing under both of San Francisco’s incredible bridges surely will be the highlight of your journey.
A Long History of San Francisco Bridge to Bridge Cruises
Red and White Fleet® originally launched its sightseeing bay cruises of San Francisco in 1939, when our company was awarded the contract for offering tours of the newly built Golden Gate and Bay Bridges during the Golden Gate International Exposition of that time. Back then our sightseeing trips under the Golden Gate and SF Bay Bridge, departed from Treasure Island where the fair was held. Our Golden GateSM and SF Bay Bridge cruises depart from Pier 43 ½ in Fisherman’s Wharf.
Ever since, our red and white cruise boats have sailed the waters of San Francisco Bay for sightseeing purposes. With the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, we have reintroduced our original “Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise” concept to visitors from around the world and hope you sincerely enjoy your time aboard.
