Escape the City with Two Popular Bay Area Cruises
The Bay Area is known for many things, and if you’ve followed this blog at all you will know many of them. A small, incomplete list, includes such activities as film screenings, dance festivals, astounding breweries and distilleries, wine tastings, chocolate tastings, food tastings, cultural festivals, and theatrical events. The amount of vibrancy, cultural engagement, and history that springs from nearly every corner in San Francisco and the surrounding area makes it a marvelous place to visit and play, and we try to fill you in on some of the great things available for those who take the time to relax in the city by the bay.
Oddly enough, we often fail to provide information on some of the various activities available for those who want to get off of the land and into the actual bay itself. Surrounded by water on three sides as it is, it is no surprise that San Francisco has a wealth of opportunities for people wanting to leave the land behind. Today, we are going to take a look at one of the more popular nautical attractions in San Francisco and the surrounding area: daily cruises!
Sometimes, you just want to get in a boat and sail away from the buildings, the asphalt, the sidewalks. Out on the ocean, there’s very little to separate you from the natural world, and even though that world is salty and uninhabitable it can still be a welcome break from the noise of the city. If a quick escape is what you’re after, consider booking passage on the extremely popular 60-Minute Bay Cruise. Starting at Fisherman’s Wharf, this cruise passes underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, cruises around Alcatraz, and generally provides passengers with a fantastic look at the entirety of the bay. It’s short running time means that you get to enjoy both a chance to escape the bustle but also manage to retain the bulk of your day for other things.
A slightly more involved outing runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, leaving in the late afternoon and and providing you with two complimentary drinks as well as a few tasty appetizers. But the primary focus of this cruise lies in the activity’s name: the Sunset Sailing Cruise. Hop aboard if you’re hoping to get some exquisite views of the ocean and sun as they explode into a glorious palette of reds, purples, and blues. A perfect start to any evening.
