While Red And White Fleet features San Francisco’s original bay tour, the family-owned bay cruise operator is an ideal setting for celebrating the Golden Gate Bridge’s 75thAnniversary. Scheduled for Sunday, May 27, 2012, the special Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary Fireworks Cruise will depart Pier 43½ in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf at 7:30 p.m. and return to port at 10:00 p.m.
The 2½ hour cruise of San Francisco Bay will include an appetizer buffet, with an assortment of sandwiches, salads, antipasti, crudité with dip, fruit and mini deserts, as well as one complimentary beverage (a choice of beer, wine or soda). Passengers will enjoy views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco skyline. Then, for the grand finale, the cruise will get into position near the Golden Gate Bridge for spectacular views of the fireworks that will be launched above the bridge.
The Golden Gate Bridge 75thAnniversary Fireworks Cruise price is $66 per person and includes the aforementioned appetizer buffet and (1) beverage. Guests should arrive no later than 7:00 p.m. at Pier 43½ to check in for the cruise.
Advance ticket purchases are recommended, as this event will sell out. (Note: Due to the celebrations along the waterfront, visitors are encouraged to allow extra time for traffic and parking). Tickets are available online at www.redandwhite.comor by phone (415) 673-2900.
