Scheduled Cruises
in the San Francisco Bay Area

Scheduled cruises are available on a wide variety of boats and ships on San Francisco Bay, from amphibious 'ducks' to multi-hundred-passenger ships.

Note: This page lists motor yacht cruises that operate on a regular schedule and do not require you to book the entire boat. If you want a boat for just your group, see Yacht Charters. You can also join a scheduled cruise on a sailing yacht. For more options, see our article on getting out on SF Bay.
