Departing from Pier 43 ½ in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf, enjoy a brief sail along San Francisco’s stunning city lights before we stop to view the fireworks show from amidst the bay on our July 4th Fireworks Cruises. While onboard, share a complimentary beverage (beer, wine or soda) with friends or family and watch the city lights glimmer in the distance. Additional snacks and beverages will be available on-board for purchase.
Every year, July 4th tends to be the busiest night along San Francisco’s waterfront. To ensure a great and comfortable experience for all our guests, we limit the number of guests per boat to provide everyone with more personal space and better viewing opportunities of the fireworks than in the past.
Weather Guarantee: We want to ensure a pleasant experience. We will treat you to a complimentary Golden Gate Bay Cruise® in case rain or fog impacts your visibility of the Fireworks Show. You then can sail with us again on our Golden Gate Bay Cruise®.
Please Note: Fourth of July Cruise tickets sell out quickly, so we highly recommend booking in advance via our website or by calling us. Online sales end the morning of July 3rd. Remaining tickets, if any, will be available at our box office located on Pier 43½, Fisherman’s Wharf.
Sailing Times: There will be four 4th of July cruise sailings, so please be sure you and your group book for the same boat. All vessels and cruise times offer a similar experience.

Ticket Pick-Up: You are free to pick up your 4th of July Cruise tickets before July 4th.
