Red and White Fleet sets the stage as the perfect “playground” for a unique and historical platform for school outings and educational field trips.
For those looking at options for a truly enriching, out-of-the-classroom education, students will benefit from a bay outing with a choice of Red and White Fleet’s myriad of learning opportunities, as follows:
Golden Gate Bay Cruise: As San Francisco’s original sightseeing adventure, this one-hour narrated cruise highlights important “landmarks” of San Francisco history, including life at the Barbary Coast during the Gold Rush, the building of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island’s history as an immigration station and the Federal Penitentiary of Alcatraz. Headphone audio is available in 12 languages.
Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise: The focus of this breathtaking 90-minute cruise is on San Francisco’s two iconic bridges, natural history, Native American culture and architecture. On route, students will sail under both spans of the massive Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, see Alcatraz and cheer the crowds, as the boat sails next to AT&T Park – home to the San Francisco Giants baseball team.
California Sunset Cruise: This two-hour cruise is a great way for choirs, marching bands, and athletic teams to spend a fun evening on the San Francisco Bay, enjoying a spirited social outing. Passengers will take in views of the city’s stunning sunset over the Pacific Ocean, live guitar entertainment, hearty appetizers from the buffet and a hot or cold beverage.
Red And White’s fleet of boats can accommodate groups of about 300 students each. Larger groups can easily be accommodated with multiple sailings. Additionally, aboard any Red and White Fleet cruise, arrangements can be made for boxed-luncheons, which might include a sandwich, seasonal salad, bag of chips and cookie. Other snacks, beverages and souvenirs are available for sale aboard all Red and White’s cruises. Red and White Fleet is also available for private cruises and can host grad nights, graduation parties and ceremonies as well as choir, club or athletic team outings.
