San Francisco Golden Gate Seaplane Tour

US$ 189.00

    What to Expect
    With high wings and big windows, seaplanes are ideal for panoramic sightseeing. When booking this San Francisco seaplane tour, choose the departure time that best suits your schedule; if you need transportation from the city to Sausalito, it’s available from Pier 39 upon request.

    In Sausalito, board your plane and take off from the water with your experienced pilot, who will point out landmarks during your relaxing flight that takes you over the redwood trees of Muir Woods, the Pacific shoreline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Head toward downtown San Francisco, cruising past sights like Fisherman’s Wharf and the Transamerica Pyramid, and circle over the bay for views of Alcatraz Island and Angel Island. Then fly by the waterfront towns of Tiburon and Belvedere before landing back in Sausalito.  

    Afterward, you are free to explore charming Sausalito on your own, if you wish. You can even take the ferry back to San Francisco (own expense); ask your pilot for information about departure times.

    Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

    You haven’t seen the Golden Gate until you’ve seen it by seaplane! My husband and I took this exciting adventure and had a great time. We chose the optional pick up and return shuttle. The pick up and drop off was at Pier 39 and it was a great service to get us to the seaplane
