California Sunset Cruise on San Francisco Bay

Hop onboard a leisurely 1.5 hour cruise along beautiful San Francisco Bay and enjoy amazing views of some of the greatest sights of the city and the Bay as the sun sets in the sky.

This delightful and relaxing San Francisco Bay cruise is the perfect aperitif to a night out in San Francisco. It’s a paradise on the Bay, complete with all the comforts that come standard when you cruise with Red and White. Come as you are, as this twilight cruise of San Francisco is a casual, relaxed affair. There’s no need to be anything but yourself.

On your cruise, you’ll sail past the infamous Alcatraz Island, under the majestic span of the Golden Gate and San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge, and along the beautiful San Francisco Skyline. Stroll the deck, spend time with friends and family, or simply let yourself relax into a comfortable seat. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean.

It’s a good idea to dress warmly if you plan to be on the outside decks as San Francisco Evening cruises can be a little chilly – but trust us when we say that you will love the views nonetheless!

Kindly note there is no food being served on this cruise. You are welcome to purchase snacks onboard or bring to go some food with you.
