Boat Tours & Cruises
On-water adventures are easy from our waterfront neighborhood.
The Bay is an integral part of San Francisco culture. Take a ferry to Alcatraz, book a sunset cruise, or see the Golden Gate Bridge up close from the vast waters that surround our famous city. Including on-water excursions on your San Francisco vacation is easy with the help of our knowledgeable concierge team.
The infamous island of Alcatraz is shrouded in both mystery and history. Visit the historical landmark that has been a civil war fort, a military prison, and one of the most notorious federal penitentiaries with one of the many daily tours, easily accessed from our hotel near Pier 39.
To start the tour before arriving on the island’s shores, book with Alcatraz Cruises, who offer 15 day-tour and 2 night-tour departures.
Location: Pier 33, Alcatraz Landing
