Red And White Fleet Features The Holiday Twilight Cruise and Golden Gate Bay Cruise Over All Major Holidays
For those that want to celebrate the coming holiday season in San Francisco with a festive, city lights-inspired twilight tour or a casual bay cruise, Red and White Fleet has packaged up San Francisco’s only “Holiday Twilight Cruise” and the original San Francisco Golden Gate Bay Cruise. Perfect for families, couples or groups of friends, or for anyone who wants to get out of the house during the holidays, both cruises are offered on the upcoming holidays, including Christmas, Hanukah and New Year.
The two-hour “Holiday Twilight Cruise” features views of the city’s spectacular nightscape, live guitar entertainment, light appetizers from the buffet and a hot or cold beverage from the bar. Nestled into the warm and cozy atmosphere of Red and White Fleet’s historic ferry boats, the cruise will pass along the dramatically lit skyline of San Francisco with its modern skyscrapers and historic landmarks, pass the infamous island of Alcatraz and cruise under the impressive San Francisco Bay Bridge and the legendary Golden Gate Bridge. Prices are $54 for adults (18+) and $36 for youth (ages 5-17). Children under five are free. Departures are on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 5:30 p.m, including Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
San Francisco’s original bay tour, the Golden Gate Bay Cruise was launched in 1939 as part of the Golden Gate International Exposition. This cruise has been a highlight of any visit to San Francisco for 70 years and a favorite for locals as well. This one hour excursion sails along San Francisco's breathtaking waterfront, under the majestic Golden Gate Bridge and closely around notorious Alcatraz Island. On route, passengers will discover San Francisco's history and world famous landmarks through personal headphone audio, available in 12 languages. There will be five cruises a day on the aforementioned holidays. Prices are $24 for adults (18+) and $16 for youth (ages 5-17). Children under five are free. Cruises depart 8-10 times daily every 30-45 minutes, typically starting at 10:00 a.m.. On Christmas Day, five departures will be offered.
To keep guests warm and comfortable on those starry winter nights, Red and White Fleet’s vessels feature heated indoor spaces with large viewing windows and upholstered seating as well as outdoor viewing decks. A full cash bar with drinks and snacks is available as well. Advance bookings are recommended as these cruises will sell out on some days/evenings. A full bar with drinks, snacks and merchandise (including logo wear) are available onboard.
