What quintessential San Francisco getaway would be complete without hitting those glorious waters on a relaxing Sunset Cruise? Be sure to set aside a couple of hours of your fabulous Golden Gate escape to treat your group to some of the most breathtaking sights of the city and bay with captivating commentary by your capable captain perfectly accompanied by live guitar as the sun slowly sinks in the West.
All spacious, comfortable cruise vessels offer your choice of heated “indoor” or open deck seating, with a full bar and souvenir merchandise conveniently available aboard. Come as you are, but bringing along a light jacket or sweatshirt to beat the evening chill is a good idea. While a full day’s exploration is bound to leave you famished, a range of casual-to-elegant options featuring everything from hearty appetizer fare, satisfying sandwiches and refreshing cocktails to elegant four-course repasts make showing up hungry a good thing. (You’re welcome to pack your own picnic.)
As the sleepy sun begins to drop over the Marin Headlands, you’ll sail past Alcatraz, Angel Island and the stunning shorelines of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito, then west toward the Golden Gate Bridge. Heading in, you’ll observe more famous landmarks including the Presidio, the Marina District and Fort Mason. Go simple or go grand, but don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to unwind and enjoy unparalleled perspectives of iconic Bay features as ol’ Sol slips below the sterling horizon and the lights come out in the enchanting City by the Bay!
