One Of The Best Ways To See San Francisco's Famous Landmarks Is By Boat

Home to one of the world's most famous bridges and iconic cable cars, San Francisco is a city you can't miss when making a trip to the USA and a perfect destination for first-time visitors to California. It's got everything a traveler could ask for: a world-famous city skyline, beautiful green areas, great food, and even better tourist attractions.

Like most big-city destinations, though, it can seem impossible to see everything in the little time you may have. SF Tourism Tips lists the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Palace of Fine Arts as just a few of the incredible attractions that await you in San Francisco. You really might find it difficult to see everything in just a few days. However, if you are truly determined to see it all, there are tours that can take you around San Francisco Bay to help you easily tick off a few of those bucket-list items.

Touring San Francisco by boat

Why take a cable car that only lets you see one or two streets when you could hop on a boat that offers incredible views of the entire city? The San Francisco Bay Boat Cruise tour company definitely has an answer to that. They offer one of the best ways to see San Francisco: by boat. They offer two 90-minute public tours — the Golden Gate Tour and Sunset Tour — which depart from Pier 39 and go all around the bay. On both of these tours, you will experience some of the most unique views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Ferry Building, and the city skyline. 

In addition to offering VIP views of San Francisco, a cruise aboard the aptly-named Wine Therapy boat also includes a tasting room with a hand-picked selection of the best local wines, with bottles available for purchase. For people who are not wine lovers, you will also find a selection of beers, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages to choose from. If you're looking for a unique way to celebrate a special event, the company also offers private charters for up to 30 guests. What a memorable way to celebrate some of life's biggest moments!
