California Twilight Cruise

See San Francisco’s sparkling city lights from the Bay!

During the winter months, Red and White offers visitors and locals alike the opportunity to see San Francisco’s skyline and the Bay Lights shimmer in the evening, while appetizers, live guitar music and drinks are served onboard. It’s the perfect way for couples, friends and families to enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the most talked-about cities in the world.

Cruise along the illuminated skyline of San Francisco with its modern skyscrapers and historic landmarks, past the infamous island of Alcatraz, under the impressive San Francisco Bay Bridge and the legendary Golden Gate, while sharing drinks with friends and family.

Many of San Francisco’s famous structures and landmarks have special holiday lights from November to January making the views even more spectacular. Some sights on our twilight cruises include the San Francisco Ferry Building, Coit Tower, Treasure & Yerba Buena Islands, and AT&T Park. You’ll instantly understand why so many people throughout the years have made San Francisco their home. If you’re visiting from out of town, you may just want to stay an extra night or two for added opportunities to sightsee!

You will be amazed by San Francisco’s sparkling city lights, as you enjoy an assortment of tasty appetizers. San Francisco becomes quite chilly during this time so nestle up in the warm and cozy atmosphere of your Red and White cruise boat where you can enjoy hot drinks from the bar. San Francisco’s illuminated skyline and holiday lights will be sure to dazzle you while you delight in live guitar music onboard.

If you’re planning to stand on the deck for any length of time, we highly recommended you bring a jacket or blanket to stay comfortable despite the breeze
