This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

Buy a ticket and just turn up at whatever sailing time suits you the best. get to see Alcatraz and turn around actually underneath the Golden Gate Bridge for the return journey. Good audio info. during the trip.

I took a day cruise. Don't know about the evening cruise. I don't think your allowed to bring your own wine on board. The board was not over crowded. Plenty of room. Have fun.

You might enjoy the cruise and tour to Alcatraz. It's very interesting. The two hour day cruise passes by it.
