Bay Voyager is happy to announce the opening of our new location at Pier 39 in San Francisco! The range of tours offered by Bay Voyager include viewing historic ships, visiting former mooring sites of abandoned gold rush ships, and experiencing active estuaries populated by cargo ships and tug boats. You’ll see the San Francisco waterfront, cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz, Under the Bay Bridge to the Port of Oakland, past AT&T Park (Home to the San Francisco Giants) and Back to Pier 39. While Bay Voyager does have specific routes, deviation is an integral part of the experience, making each adventure an engaging and exhilarating encounter.According to owner and captain, Charles Jennings, “we feel there is a need to provide more intimate and individualized tours that travel closer and give more in depth guided tours. By being in a small and agile vessel, guests can have an up close and personal adventure while traveling to all corners of the always-fascinating bay.”

This tour was so much fun! We were able to get a close up view to many attractions in the bay! We enjoyed being right under The Golden Gate Bridge (awesome photo ops) & next to pier with sea lions! Worth every penny!!

Very neat tour! My 11 year old, and the rest of us as well enjoyed the bumps of the waves. Captain Charles is a super guy and we can’t wait to take the Bay Voyager tour with him when visiting SF again!

Captain was very customer friendly and informative, love the smaller boat size, made you feel apart of the sea, feeling slight bumps of the waves as you navigate throughout the Ocean. Great scenery for photos, this trip was the highlight of my day!

Great experience for a solo traveler, went while my friend was at work, friendly staff and easy to find on the pier. I didn’t think we were going to be going so close to the Golden Gate Bridge, an experience I will not forget. Had...More
