Pier 43 ½ is located at the intersections of Taylor Street and Embarcadero in the heart of historic Fisherman’s Wharf, right behind the famous Fisherman’s Wharf Crab Wheel and next to such well-known restaurants as Alioto’s, the Franciscan, and Boudin.

Pier 43 ½ is the departure point for all of Red and White Fleet’s® public cruises, including the Golden Gate Bay Cruise®, Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise®, California Sunset Cruise® and also the California Twilight Cruise®.

The Red and White Fleet® is located on Pier 43½ on the intersection of Taylor Street and Embarcadero in the heart of Historic Fisherman’s Wharf. For driving directions, we recommend that you use Google Maps.

Traffic in San Francisco can be stop and go, particularly during rush hour, baseball games, and the busy summer months. So please be sure to allow for extra time to make it to Fisherman’s Wharf, as we are unable to hold our cruise departures.


Red and White Fleet® can offer one hour of parking validation for cars entering the Triangle Parking lot (located across the street from Pier 43 1/2 cornered by Jefferson, Taylor Street and Little Embarcadero). Validation can be offered to cars that enter the lot between 10am and before the final public cruise of the day departs. Sorry, we can’t validate if you entered the lot before 10am. No parking validation offered during Fleet Week weekend and July 4th due to traffic and street closures along Fisherman’s Wharf. To receive your parking validation, you will need to have your parking ticket stamped by our ticketing team prior to boarding our cruise vessel.
