  • San Francisco Bay: Adventure Boat Tour

    1. San Francisco Bay: Adventure Boat Tour

    Travel along the San Francisco Bay in a small group on a boat tour. Travel faster and go farther out into the bay than most other boat tours. You will be as close as possible to the sights and wildlife, in a personal setting.  Depart from the world famous Pier 39. You will be outfitted with weather appropriate gear to keep you warm and dry from the occasional splash. Take in the historic waterfront from a new angle. Make a quick visit to the world famous Pier 39 sea lions, where you can see them eye to eye. There is no need for binoculars on this trip because you will see everything up close. Listen to the narration from your expert captain and learn something new about this historic area. See the waterfront in a way that is unlike any other experience on the bay. Take photos, make memories, and enjoy one of the finest ways to see it all up close. This small group boat tour is limited...

    This was a great trip! We got to see the bay and all the sites. Captain Charles was great telling us all the history of the area. I highly recommend this trip.

  • San Francisco: 2-Hour Private Group Tuk Tuk Night Tour

    2. San Francisco: 2-Hour Private Group Tuk Tuk Night Tour

  • From San Francisco: Full-Day Sonoma Valley Wine Tour

    3. From San Francisco: Full-Day Sonoma Valley Wine Tour

    Join a small group tour to Sonoma Valley, home of famous California wines and artisanal chesses. Your full-day tour starts with pick-up at your hotel in San Francisco and then heads north with a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, where you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Bay and the Marin Headlands. Your journey through the rolling hills of Sonoma includes a stop at 3 wineries, where you can enjoy tasting several different types of wine. Learn about the area and its wines from your knowledgeable guide and impress your friends with your new-found love of Sonoma Valley wines. Your tour will include free time in charming Sonoma Square so you can get lunch on your own.

    Our trip was great, our guide Adam is what made it so special. There were 3 wineries chosen, and 2 were exceptional. Peter Cellars was a disappointment and cannot understand why it was part of the boutique wine tour. Just a suggestion for the future - By putting onions and tomatoes on the sandwiches, the taste of the onion was overpowering and the sandwiches a bit soggy after being in the cooler for several hours prior to lunchtime.

What people are saying about Pier 39

Captain Charles was very knowledgeable of the bay. The boat was fun and exciting. We love to go fast and the photo opportunities were great. My son sat in the front and thought that was the best ever. We had read it went past Alcatraz and my son was slightly bummed about that, but over all we had an amazing time! Make sure you are there 30 minutes early! :)

Was an amazing experience --- Captain Charles was very good at sharing some great information about San Fran. Boat ride took us to places we couldn't have gotten any other way.

This was a great trip! We got to see the bay and all the sites. Captain Charles was great telling us all the history of the area. I highly recommend this trip.

Great tour, much better than just riding a standard boat. The children were delighted.

Spectacular. And I loved the guide very nice and entertaining.
