What You'll Do
  • Visit Alcatraz Island and explore the notorious prison
  • Cruise past Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge as you look for sea lions
  • Admire the striking skyline of San Francisco, always in sight during your cruise
Overview
Experience beautiful San Francisco Bay on a catamaran cruise, and take in the city's stunning skyline as you sail by Alcatraz Island and under the Golden Gate Bridge. Sail by ferry to Alcatraz Island to visit the former federal penitentiary.
What to Expect
Discover the beauty of San Francisco Bay on a 1.5-hour catamaran cruise. Take in the views of the city’s skyline as you sail by Alcatraz Island and under the Golden Gate Bridge. Feel the sea breeze in your hair, and keep a look out for sea lions.

Admire your surroundings from a protected viewing area, or live on the edge and stand on the canvas trampoline nets with the waves beneath your feet. Pick up a helpful navigation guide providing information about San Francisco's landmarks that you sail past.

Complete the trip by taking the helm from the captain for a chance to steer the boat yourself. The captain and crew are always there, happy to snap a photo or answer your questions about the sights of San Francisco.

If all this excitement makes you hungry or thirsty, there are snacks, soda, beer and wine available at the snack bar. See San Francisco's skyline like never before on this incredible sailing adventure.

The second part of your 4-hour combination package is a ferry ride and a stop to visit the notorious Alcatraz Prison, which served as a federal penitentiary from 1934 to 1963, housing criminals such as Al Capone and Robert Stroud, the Birdman.

Take the award-winning 45-minute cell-house audio tour, and hear the tales of those who lived there. This tour brings history to life through the recounting of stories from correctional officers and prisoners.
