Sunset Bay Cruise:If you embark during late March through early November, you’ll watch the sun setting over the the Pacific Ocean as you cruise toward the Marin Headlands and past the Golden Gate Bridge. Glide past Alcatraz, Angel Island and the shorelines of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito. On your return to Fisherman's Wharf you'll see many more notable sights, including the Presidio, the Marina District and Fort Mason.

After the sun sets over the horizon, you'll glide past San Francisco's modern skyscrapers, historic landmarks, the infamous Alcatraz Island and both the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. Listen to live guitar entertainment while enjoying the illuminated skyline — an unmissable San Francisco view.

The boat was huge and it was the highlight of our trip. We didn’t really eat the apps or drink we just stayed on top and enjoyed the incredible views. I got a little nervous with the fog coming back but it seemed like they knew what they were doing and got us back safely!

Very much enjoyed the cruise on the Red and White line and being able to sit inside or out.Seeing the bay city from the water and going under the bridge was a large part of the experience.The sunset was definitely non dramatic but the scenery, ambiance onboard with music(Sean on the guitar) drinks and heavy hor'dourves proved to be a most enjoyable experience.

timely , nice snacks and friendly staff. Also, the ship was clean and the bar-maid had a nice sense of humor; she also poured a good drink.

This tour should not operate in the rain. It is a complete waste of money and time to take the boat out when it is pouring down rain. They insist that you arrive 30 minutes early, but have nowhere for guests to wait, so we stood in the rain for 30 minutes. When the boat returns late at night, everything in the area has closed down for the day.There is literally nowhere to get a taxi to take you back to your hotel. We got lucky and found a bouncer at a nearby club not a place we would spend time in who saw our distress and took care of us while he called a taxi. I would not recommend this tour.

We have take the Twilight/Sunset Cruise several times and have found it to be a 5 Star experience every time--in bright sunshine or dense fog, warmer climate or chilly winds. The Crews have always been professional, friendly and courteous and the entertainment and food spreads top notch. We went on a Monterey Bay twilight cruise for the same price and there is no comparison --this is the one!

After traveling from across both the pond and the country - we were able to wind down and familiarize ourselves with the San Francisco area at the same time! The crew made our excursion all the more pleasant by helping us take pictures providing tips and even taking us up to meet the captain who let us steer the boat briefly! The food was abundant and delicious. Great musician too! We just couldn’t find a tip box when we d finished so gave our show of appreciation to a deckhand onshore. Chris was a favorite on board advisor who explained history and the must sees to us! A great experience for all! Definitely recommend!
