Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

466 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

Treasure Island has a long history and is a man-made island that was built in 1936-37 for the International Exposition held in 1939. It was taken over by the U.S. Navy in the early 40’s until it was released back to the public in 1997. Since then the buildings have slowly been torn down or have been converted for use for businesses and residential housing. The island was a great place to go to view San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and S.F. Bay and was a great spot for night-time photography of the city as well. However, as of March 2020, almost the entire island is under some sort of construction. Most of the island has detours and the old vantage points of San Francisco have been walled off or are inaccessible due to the construction. I have heard about massive development of the island with high-rise buildings and it looks like it’s true. The island has quite a movie filming history as well but nothing to visit. For the most part, I would recommend staying away from Treasure Island for now as it is a huge mess.

Come here for a view of the Financial District. It seems to rise right out of the Bay. The island is slowly emerging as a new neighborhood, but it will take a while.

We stopped here as part of the Hop on, Hop off bus night tour, specifically to take twilight photos of San Francisco. We stopped where there was a cafe, which was convenient and did have great views of the city. Apart from it being part of a tour, I don't think I would bother stopping here. Yes it does offer great views of the city but there are other places that offer excellent views too.
