Once you are ready to return to the City, you will be free to take any of the return ferries (departing every 30 minutes).
For your Bay Voyager 90 minute excursion, venture down the waterfront to world famous Pier 39 and, after we outfit you with foul weather gear (to keep you warm and dry from the occasional splash), you will board the only 12 passenger RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) on San Francisco Bay.
Explore The Ferry Building, Presidio, past Alcatraz, then out past the Golden Gate Bridge and back to our homeport for a quick visit to the world famous sea lions that have made Pier 39 their home since 1989 On this trip, narrated by your Captain, you’ll learn something new about this historic area, and view the waterfront in a way that’s unlike any other experience on the bay.
