Happiest Hour on the Bay

There are some things in life that are simply undeniable: The sun rises in the east. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. And: Drinks taste better on a boat. On that third one – we now have a late afternoon cruise called “The Happiest Hour on the Bay”.

Join us on our 5:30 departure for a 60-minute sightseeing tour of San Francisco Bay and enjoy discounted pricing on cocktails, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Finish your day or start your evening with Red and White for the best views on board a piece of San Francisco history.


Long considered one of the top things to do in San Francisco, our Golden Gate Bay Cruise takes you from Fisherman’s Wharf along the city skyline towards the Golden Gate Bridge. After sailing under the massive span of this architectural wonder, your San Francisco Bay tour heads for Alcatraz. Following a slow cruise around Alcatraz island and a pass by the San Francisco sea lions at Pier 39, we return to Pier 43 ½ Fisherman’s Wharf.
