California Sunset Cruise on San Francisco Bay

Enjoy a leisurely 2-hour cruise along beautiful San Francisco Bay and enjoy live guitar music, a selection of light appetizers, drinks and the wonderful views of San Francisco’s waterfront bathed in the sun’s golden sunset.

This delightful and relaxing San Francisco Bay cruise is the perfect aperitif to a night out in San Francisco. Not only will you be wined and dined with a complimentary buffet and drink, but live entertainment will set the tone for this perfect discovery of San Fran’s enchanting water facing towns, sleek and modern sky scraper waterfronts, famous landmarks and the general aesthetics of this beautifully unique city.

On your cruise you’ll sail past numerous National Historic landmarks and San Francisco sights, including Coit Tower, the Transamerica Pyramid, St. Peter and Paul's Church, and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. As the sun begins to set over the Marin Headlands you’ll cruise past Alcatraz, Angel Island, and the shorelines of Tiburon, Belvedere, and Sausalito.

Take a moment to watch the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean, as you sail west towards the Golden Gate. On your way back to Fisherman’s Wharf see many more famous sights, including the Presidio, the Marina District, and Fort Mason.

Your 2 hour cruise includes live entertainment, a vast appetizer buffet, and one complimentary beer, wine or soda. Come as you are as this sunset cruise of San Francisco is a casual, relaxed affair. There’s no need to be anything but yourself — whether you’re wearing sneakers and jeans or more formal attire, you’ll feel completely at home on our boat.

Along the way, share drinks and a meal with friends while taking in the incredible views. We like to think of this cruise as our picnic on San Francisco Bay at sunset! Be sure to dress warmly if you plan to be on the outside decks as San Francisco Evening Bay Tours are known to have cool evening weather – but trust us when we say that you will love the views nonetheless!
