Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Golden Gate Seaplane Tour

See the Golden Gate Bridge on a evening seaplane tour

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 Pier 39 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.

This was one of the coolest things I and #39;ve done in my adult life. The pilot was fun and knowledgeable, the tour was amazing and he made sure both sides of the plane got to see everything. If you do one tour, DO THIS.

What a wonderful trip. It was a beautiful morning, we flew over the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Muir Woods and City of San Francisco. Pilot was very friendly and most informative pointing out different pieces of interest. This was amazing and would recommend it to everyone. My husband had always wanted to go in a seaplane and to be able to have the view that we had was exceptional.
