What To Expect

Dinner, dancing, sunset, the city skyline lit up after dark—enjoy an ideal night out in San Francisco with this dinner cruise on the bay.

Start at the Embarcadero, where you board the boat and set off across the water. Purchase an alcoholic drink from the on-board bar (own expense) or enjoy soda, iced tea, and water included in your package. Then sit down for your multi-course dinner of gourmet foods. The menu changes seasonally, but look forward to creative fine dining with a Californian touch, such as watermelon arugula salad, crab gazpacho, chipotle short ribs, and berry parfait.

After dinner, the DJ begins playing an array of dancing music, from Top 40 tunes to classic hits. Between bites and dancing, check out San Francisco sights like Alcatraz Island and the Bay Bridge. Look over at the waterfront towns of Sausalito and Tiburon, and cruise underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Your evening on the water ends back at the pier.

Due to the seasonality of local fresh ingredients, all menus are subject to change.

Your company sent me the wrong schedule then refused to take accountability when I missed our cruise.
Ethan_K, May 2024
I booked a Saturday cruise, the email confirmation clearly stated boarding time 7pm and departure time 7:30 pm. My wife and I arrived at 7pm exited to for this new experience to learn that the cruise had already departed. The attendant there stated boarding time was actually 6:30pm with a cruise time of 7pm. The attendant also stated we would be able to re schedule our cruise. I reached out to the operator and they refused to take accountability for the scheduling mistake they sent me, the operator refused to allow us to re schedule. I understand all cruise sales are non refundable, I was not asking for a refund. We just wanted to experience the dinner dance cruise, but was sent the wrong schedule and lost $400 because of a mistake that wasn’t even our own. This occurrence is not only unacceptable but disheartening that a business such as Viator can allow a mistake and refuse to take accountability for the mistake, as a result, the consumer suffers.
My husband took me on...

Dinner cruise around Alcatraz, Golden Gate, and Angel Island
Clarence_B, May 2024
Had a great time with my wife she really enjoyed it. I did too golden. Gate bridge was awesome. Would highly recommend
Cecilia_W, Apr 2024
On a business trip. Dinner took too long to be served. Waited most of the trip for a small meal. The Brunch cruise is a better experience. Not worth it.
Birthday surprise
Jane_P, Apr 2024
We booked the cruise as a surprise to my boyfriend for his birthday. We had an amazing time. The food was not amazing, but I Didn’t expect much from a prefixed menu. The drinks were great. The photographer, servers, bartender, and DJ were all amazing and attentive. I would definitely do this again for a special occasion.

Great food and music selection, they were able to work with an allergy which was nice. Beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, we did go on a cloudy night but still worth it! Even with slightly rougher waters was smooth for dancing, would go again!
Lovely cruise
Martha_M, Feb 2024
I took my 6yrs old grandson and was lovely see him dancing with everyone, my daughter also enjoyed her birthday,music was nice
No elevator for handicap person to enjoy outside.
Lily_Y, Dec 2023
We talked to customer rep from chat before we booked the tickets regarding the wheelchair accessibility. The person said yes. We went there last night that there wasn’t an elevator to go outside to see the bay. The stairs were hard to climb. So my daughter was stuck inside of the dining area. She wanted to see the outside so badly. I think the company should specifically point out the handicap persons can’t go out because there is NO elevator.
Well worth the money
Dolores_M, Oct 2023
Beautiful nite. The Bay Bridge was so impressive. Great service and excellent food. We’ll worth the cost
A fun birthday
Stephen_B, Aug 2023
Food was good. Have had better cocktails, service was good but the dining room was stuffy and very warm and the DJ played some good music. The weather that night was absolutely perfect....
Bad experience
Jorge_C, Aug 2023
I didn’t go on the cruise. My girlfriend’s plans changed. I tried to reschedule but I wasn’t able to reschedule. I tried to cancel but I was told that I would lose my money. Even though there is a clause in your website that states that if I was to cancel within 24 hours from the scheduled tour I would get a refund. The lady that I spoke with didn’t let me have that option. If you don’t honor what you state on your website then it should be considered false advertisement
Good experience on the bay
Mark_C, Aug 2023
Our waitress in particular, but the entire staff. They were very friendly and professional. A little expensive, but worth it
Dinner cruise
Robert_B, Jul 2023
We have to say we have been a few of these dinner cruises and this one was by far the best . The boat itself was in beautiful condition really well looked after. The staff were really attentive to all the guests needs and service was excellent. The best dinner cruise by far . Highly recommended from us
Great experience

Hella Lit! 🙌🏽
David_T, Jul 2023
It was awesome! The premiere dinner dance was great! Dj, food, and most definitely the services. It made our anniversary very memorable and my wife and I loved it!
Beautiful Night Skyline
Robert_G, Jul 2023
The views from the bay was worth the trip alone, and the food was good, we went under the Golden Gate Bridge and back to Pass close to Alcatraz then on the other side of the Bay Bridge around Treasure Island and back to the city, the night lights of the Bay Bridge and city Skyline was awesome, I was surprised they would still have this cruise as on a Tuesday night there were only 8 tables occupied so it was nice that it was not packed
Fun night
Thomas_L, Jul 2023
The views of everything were spectacular .. the food was good.. it just got cold really fast.. we weren’t prepared
Too pricy for the overall value
Maria_G, Jul 2023
Weird mix of high prices, tiny portions of food, and bad music. The pictures of the city and great weather saved everything. But you can be not so lucky. I would not do it again.
Great dinner cruise with spectacular views
Lawrence_T, Jul 2023
Food was surprisingly good as you never know what to expect. Views were excellent as we cruised around San Francisco Bay and we all enjoyed the music and dancing towards the end
Great Service
