Admire San Francisco from the air on this seaplane adventure from Sausalito. Aboard a 6-passenger plane, you’ll fly over the bay, taking in views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Muir Woods and more. See downtown San Francisco and Fisherman’s Wharf, and soar past Angel Island. Everyone gets a window seat on this 30-minute flight, and transportation is available from Fisherman's Wharf.
  • Seaplane tour of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz
  • Fly over the Financial District, the downtown area and Fisherman's Wharf
  • Get a bird's eye view of the picturesque towns of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito
  • Every passenger is guaranteed a window seat
With high wings and big windows, seaplanes are ideal for panoramic sightseeing. When booking this San Francisco seaplane tour, choose the departure time that best suits your schedule; if you need transportation from the city to Sausalito, it’s available from Fisherman's Wharf upon request.

In Sausalito, board your plane and take off from the water with your experienced pilot, who will point out landmarks during your relaxing flight that takes you over the redwood trees of Muir Woods, the Pacific shoreline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Head toward downtown San Francisco, cruising past sights like Fisherman’s Wharf and the Transamerica Pyramid, and circle over the bay for views of Alcatraz Island and Angel Island. Then fly by the waterfront towns of Tiburon and Belvedere before landing back in Sausalito.  

Afterward, you are free to explore charming Sausalito on your own, if you wish. You can even take the ferry back to San Francisco (own expense); ask your pilot for information about departure times.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Exceptional experience!
, Sep 2019
Being a local in the Bay Area this has been probably even more exciting! The pilot was extremely nice to my family and gave a lot of interesting and useful information. The flight was super smooth and we had the best views. You can see from every seat of the plane and we had so much fun. Totally worth it and would love to do it again one day.
Memorable Experience
, Sep 2019
Everything we hoped it would be. There were 5 passengers for our flight and plenty of space, we were also a mixed European group, English, Dutch and German - the pilot kept switching between all 3 languages. Perfect way to end our SF visit, seeing all the sites we’d seen on the ground from the air. Thank you!

Great seaplane tour and staff from the front desk to the pilot. Everything was very smooth from the booking process all the way threw the flight. Would definitely recommend. Myself and my 15 yr old daughter loved it.
Best Xmas gift ever

This was an amazing experience! I can’t recommend this enough, I would love to do it again one day! You get adequate time in the air, and get to see all of San Francisco. This is a must do for locals and visitors alike!
Coolest experience ever!

I booked this seaplane tour as a surprise for my son. Upon learning that my son (17) is a private pilot the instructor let him do some take offs and landings in the bay! He is hooked, now he wants to fly seaplanes all the time. Not something widely available in Texas 😊. The pilot gave him an unbelievable experience and we are forever greatful!

Fantastic views of the the San Francisco skyline and surrounding areas. I never imagined what fun it could be to swoop past the ATT ballpark, Alcatraz and the bridges. The pilots are very professional and friendly providing detailed description of everything we were seeing. A must do tour for everyone!
