Where

Love wine but don’t have time to hit Napa or Sonoma this trip? Experience the best of San Francisco AND wine country with a 2-hour daytime or sunset boat cruise aboard “Wine Therapy,” SF’s only wine tour on the water. With San Francisco Bay Boat Cruises, you’ll move along the Bay in a classic 1958 cabin-top cruiser while sampling award-winning California wines (including from Sunce Winery, one of our favorites) and nibbling on cheese and other appetizers.

After leaving the dock, you’ll head to and underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, where you can view it from all angles. On the way back, you’ll get a close-up of Alcatraz Island, the SF skyline and then AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. If there’s a baseball game in progress, the boat will idle in an alcove outside the park, where you often see hard-core kayakers patiently waiting to catch a game ball.

Although there’s ample seating inside the boat, we highly recommend bringing jackets so you can spend at least sometime outside taking in the sites and sea air. You can also test out the very cool and practical wine glass holders, which enable you to keep your wine nearby while snapping all kinds of selfies or pics of the Golden Gate at sunset.

Racertrips Tips

  • The boat leaves from Pier 39, which is part of Fisherman’s Wharf. If you want to get a dose of Fisherman’s Wharf without going overboard on touristy attractions, getting to and from the boat will give you just that. Plan to arrive a few minutes early, and you can head to the end of the pier (a very short distance) and take in the entertaining sites and not-so-entertaining smells of the sea lions.
  • Although we have this classified as a “grown-up” activities, kids were permitted when we did this tour. We recommend calling to confirm the policy.
