RED AND WHITE FLEET® CRUISES
California Twilight Cruise®
Cruise along the illuminated skyline of San Francisco — with its modern skyscrapers and historic landmarks, under the legendary Golden Gate Bridge, past the infamous Alcatraz Island, and under the iconic Bay Bridge 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 Island, Yerba Buena Island, and AT&T Park.
