Go Straight to the Gate!
This popular 90-minute boat tour is a great way to experience San Francisco from a totally different vantage point. You’ll sail under both the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and the colossal San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, around Alcatraz island, past the historic Ferry Building standing on the waterfront since 1898, and past the modern AT&T ballpark. The cruise has headphone audio commentary available in over 12 languages.
You’ll learn all about this city’s unique natural history, architecture, and Native American culture. Plus, you’ll hear all about the construction of the bridges, the geology of San Francisco Bay and the earthquakes which have shaken the Bay Area.
