Cruising to San Francisco

A cruise to San Francisco is a chance to experience some of the most iconic sites in the US, from wonky streets, steep hills lined with quirky buildings and the Golden Gate Bridge.

San Francisco Cruise Port

Thanks to the city's relatively small size, San Francisco cruise port is just a walk away from a whole host of attractions, including museums and restaurants. While the rest of the city is also walkable, with the famous Chinatown just a half hour stroll away, the steep hills can seem daunting, so be sure to make use of the streetcars, buses and even cable cars which make up San Francisco's public transport network.

What To Do On A San Francisco Cruise

San Francisco is bursting with life and personality, and the best way to see it all is by embarking on a city tour. Whether as part of a cruise line excursion or on your own thanks to the open-top buses, you'll get to see some of the most popular sights such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park and Union Square. What's more, no trip to San Francisco is complete without a trip to Alcatraz Island and one of the world's most notorious prisons, and with the ferry departing from close to the cruise terminal there's no reason to miss out. Meanwhile, for those who prefer their activities to be a little more light-hearted, Fisherman's Wharf is a popular spot for tourists, with the sea lions and buskers a particular highlight. Other must-do activities on a San Francisco cruise include:

  • Test your fitness on a hike up Lombard Street, a residential street with eight hairpin turns
  • Take in the panoramic city views from Coit Tower
  • Sample tasty food at the market in the San Francisco Ferry Building
