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.
Red and White Fleet’s® Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise® departs 1 – 5 times daily all year long. While our noon departures tend to be the busiest Bridge 2 Bridge Cruises® of the day, we welcome guests to bring aboard boxed luncheons, to enjoy a meal all while exploring San Francisco Bay.
