Hornblower Cruises & Events, San Francisco

4.4
#25 of 102 in Outdoors in San Francisco
Our cruises feature exceptional Hornblower service, food and drinks prepared fresh onboard by our talented local chefs, lively onboard entertainment, and non-stop views of the sights of San Francisco Bay.

Your San Francisco cruise launches into the beautiful San Francisco Bay, where we cruise past (and under) world-famous landmarks like the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz Island. We’ll take in stunning views of the city skyline, including Coit Tower and the Transamerica building. And you can view it all from the cozy comfort inside one of our many yachts, with plenty of seating options for every taste—or head out onto the open sky decks to take in the views, or dance under the glittering stars. With an ever-changing backdrop for your photographs, you’ll create memories (and pictures) that you’ll cherish forever.

Try one of our many San Francisco dining cruises, which launch every weekend and on many holidays throughout the year. Join us for a Christmas Day cruise, New Year’s Eve cruise, New Year’s Day brunch cruise, Valentine’s Day cruise, Mother’s Day cruise, Father’s Day cruise, 4th of July cruise, and Thanksgiving cruise, among others. Or celebrate your birthday, anniversary, promotion, or any other special day with us on a brunch or dinner cruise.

Hornblower offers private chartered yacht events and experiences, including weddings, birthday parties, anniversary parties, corporate events, including meetings, parties, and team-building events; and school events, including grad night, proms, and other school dances and events. Our experienced event planners will work with you on every detail, including décor, menus, and entertainment, to help achieve your vision, theme, and goals. On the day of the event, we’ll be with you every step of the way, overseeing everything and making sure it goes smoothly so that you can relax, enjoy the experience, and connect with your guests.

  • We took the 4th of July dinner cruise. The food was just okay, typical buffet food. I thought it would be way too crowded, but they handled the crowd well. The fog rolled into the bay so they moved us...  more »

  • Hornblower Cruises are the best way to witness the SF skyline from the bay. The boat ride is around 2 hours with some amazing views of the SF Skyline, the Pier, Port of San Francisco, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Special thanks to the whole crew for such an amazing experience.
  • Captain Adam, Paul & Julio made our night the best! Such hospitable crew! And the experience was exceptional! Everyone needs to do this!
