Semi-Private Deck

Secure your own private area on board one of our public California Sunset/Twilight Cruises

There’s nothing more thrilling or soothing than being on the water. The fresh bay air, warm sun, and waves splashing at the bow are the perfect setting for your next big gathering! Consider celebrating your birthday, girlfriend’s shower or family milestone aboard the Red and White. Enjoy the private charter experience — without the private charter price tag — with your loved ones and friends. Check out our details page for more information about our Semi-Private Deck experience.

Secure your own private area on board our public California Sunset or Twilight Cruise cruises. Our private area can easily host up to 100 guests, but keep in mind, you’ll want to plan to buy out the event space for at least 50 guests.

When onboard, you’ll have access to the entire vessel with exclusive access to the main deck. Your event will include:

Buffet setup — You’ll have a wide variety of tasty bites to enjoy, as well as a bar setup on your deck.

A free drink from the bar — Guests can choose from a selection of a cocktail, beer, wine or soda to stay hydrated and happy. Offer a toast or two to the guest of honor! A cash bar or upgrading your bar service are also possible options.

Light snacks for each table — Enjoy light snacks with your guests as you take in the sweeping view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the shadows of the shore skyline. You’ll see famous coastal landmarks, including the glowing lights of the Ghirardelli sign. Ghirardelli Square is a chic shopping spot housed in the original, repurposed chocolate factory!

Table linens and tea lights — Nature will do most of the work in setting the ambiance. As the sun sinks, you’ll be treated to rich reds and warm yellows spreading across the sky. But glowing tea lights and crisp linen also offer class and style onboard. You won’t have to worry about bringing your own party decorations, or setting up and cleaning up. Relax with your guests and grab another drink. We’ve got the basics covered!

A private area on our main deck — Celebrate your event with friends and family in your own private space. Want to listen to some tunes? Play your favorites exclusively on your deck. Prefer to hear the relaxed sound of live music? Live guitar is available for all guests on the public level.
