Although there’s no shortage of stunning scenery in San Francisco, one perspective you don’t want to miss is the view from the water at dusk. Here are some options for getting out onto the San Francisco Bay at sunset to experience the city’s sparkling skyline—and more.

Sightseeing Cruises
Two of San Francisco’s most iconic sights, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, are best seen up close by boat. Sightseeing cruises take in these landmarks and more: Choose from flexible trips on larger vessels that grant an overview of the bay, or a more intimate experience aboard a luxury catamaran or sailboat. If you prefer your sightseeing done on land or by day, you can also opt to simply enjoy the bay at twilight on a relaxing sunset cruise.

Dinner Cruises
San Francisco is world-renowned for its culinary scene, so it seems only natural to combine time on the water with a delicious meal. Twilight tours offer a 2-hour trip across the bay with light appetizers, while dinner and dance cruises up the romance and include a 4-course meal made on board. Many tours include the option to add wine or champagne.

Combo Tours
A popular combination tour includes a sunset cruise on the bay alongside a guided visit to Alcatraz, for which it can be very difficult to obtain tickets. If you prefer to see the city from both the water and the air, combine a sunset cruise with a helicopter tour for breathtaking aerial views.
