What You Can Expect

San Francisco 1-Hour Seaplane Tour with Shuttle Transport

60-Minute San Francisco and Coastal Highlights Seaplane Sightseeing Tour

Featuring big windows and high wings that don’t obstruct views, a seaplane is the ideal way to enjoy some panoramic sightseeing. When booking this San Francisco seaplane tour, make sure to note if you would like to take advantage of round-trip shuttle transportation from Pier 39 to Sausalito (30 minutes each way).

In Sausalito, board your 6-passenger plane and take off from the waters of Richardson Bay with your experienced pilot, who will point out landmarks during your 1-hour flight. Soar over the hills of Marin to the Pacific coastline, where you can look down on Tomales Bay and Point Reyes National Seashore, home to pristine beaches and roaming cows. Keep your eyes open for potential whales in the water, and admire the Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Then fly along Highway 1, making your way toward the Golden Gate Bridge where the Pacific Ocean meets San Francisco Bay. Cruising past the city skyline, enjoy views of Crissy Field, Coit Tower, the Transamerica Pyramid and AT&T Park; then circle the bay for an aerial look at Alcatraz Island and Angel Island.

When you return to Sausalito, touch down with a smooth water landing to end your exciting tour. You can then spend time in Sausalito on your own, or take the shuttle back to Pier 39, if requested.

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

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2016

Unfortunately we never got to ride this due to an error - I had booked trip for 9th August - or thought I had - on arrival was told trip booked for 2nd August which is ridiculous as as you can see by all bookings we were actually in Chicago on the 2nd August on a helicopter ride there
I phoned to speak to customer services and was told we would have to rebook trip and pay in full again not impressed in the slightest - no offer of discount or goodwill gesture day totally ruined as it was a special trip
