Regularly scheduled "City Front" and "Northern Shore" Bay Cruises, alternating dates monthly. Each tour will leave from Pier 52 in San Francisco at the time below (check the website for earlier pickups and departure from Emeryville). The 2024 season features two possible routes:
The "City Front" tour takes us north under the Bay Bridge as far as Telegraph Hill before we cruise south to below Candlestick Point and then make our way back along the shoreline, with close looks at Candlestick Point State Recreation Area, Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, India Basin and Heron's Head Park, Islais Creek and Pier 80, Pier 70, and Mission Bay.
The Northern Shore of the City will revisit the early history of Yerba Buena Cove and Telegraph Hill, too, but then we'll wrap around the city to explore Fisherman's Wharf, Aquatic Park, Fort Mason/Black Point, the former Panama-Pacific International Exposition grounds in the Marina and the Presidio, and reach Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge.
San Francisco's shoreline is packed with lost and forgotten histories, many of which surprisingly still shape our lives today. Carlsson is a skilled storyteller who will make our gorgeous cruise as entertaining and informative as it is beautiful!
And it's BYOB and snacks!
