What You Can Expect

San Francisco Golden Gate Seaplane Tour

See the Golden Gate Bridge on a evening seaplane tour

The Golden Gate Seaplane Tour will fly you directly out to the Pacific Coast and south to the Golden Gate Bridge. After flying over the bridge, you'll continue your flight over the Financial District and Downtown San Francisco, along the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, then north to Alcatraz, around Angel Island and along the picturesque towns of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito.

The flight lasts approximately 30 minutes and offers a great balance of sights from Marin to San Francisco.

Seaplanes are ideal for sightseeing and photography. Their high wings and large view windows present panoramic views and unrivaled photo opportunities. Experienced, knowledgeable pilots will point out landmarks as you cruise by at a leisurely pace.

Sausalito, a quiet, charming seaside town, is often compared to those found in the Mediterranean. Conclude your trip by spending time in Sausalito browsing the quaint shops, or ask your pilot about returning by ferry to San Francisco.

Your magical ride above the most spectacular scenery in the world awaits!

Every seat booked is guaranteed a window seat.

What an amazing experience! Flying low over San Francisco Bay was exhilarating, and the aerial views were phenomenal. We saw the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown San Francisco, Alcatraz, and everything in between. The plane was intimate and every seat had a window, which was awesome. I'm a local and have lived in the Bay Area all my life, but haven't done anything like this. I couldn't put my camera down!

Great experience because seaplane is different from a classic plane. Views are really great and I guess the best way (at reasonable cost) to see SF from the sky. Interesting comment from the pilot... and what a wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge ! To do.... and to see !

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Franchement à faire si le prix vous le permet. Navette gratuite depuis le Pier "je ne sais plus lequel" qui permet de traverser le Golden Gate Bridge vers Marin. Pilote super sympa et bien sûr pro qui commente le tour efficacement. Baptême hydravion pour ma fille et moi-même, décollage et atterrissage décoiffants. S'approche très près du Golden Gate, survol des alentours, vraiment très chouette
