Enjoy Great Views on the California Sunset Cruise®

Experience sunset views along the shore of Sausalito

Get a great view of some of the greatest sights of the city on this San Francisco Bay sunset cruise.

On this relaxed 2-hour cruise enjoy spectacular sunset views, live guitar music and light appetizers. It’s a paradise on the bay, complete with all the comforts that come standard when you cruise with the Red and White FleetSM. Come as you are as this sunset cruise of San Francisco is a casual, relaxed affair. There’s no need to be anything but yourself — whether you’re wearing sneakers and jeans or more formal attire, you’ll feel completely at home on our boat. Along the way, share drinks and a meal with friends while taking in the incredible views. We like to think of this cruise as our picnic on San Francisco Bay at sunset!

Cruise past the infamous island of Alcatraz, around Angel Island National Park, under the majestic span of the Golden Gate, and along the beautiful shorelines of Tiburon and Sausalito, as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean. Make sure to bring your camera. Photo opportunities present themselves around every bend, and you don’t want to miss a chance to memorialize these fabulous moments. Please be sure to tag us when you post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest — we love to share the fun!

Be sure to dress warmly if you plan to be on the outside decks as San Francisco Evening Bay Tours are known to have cool evening weather – but trust us when we say that you will love the views nonetheless!
