5 Ways to Get out on the Water this Weekend


The San Francisco Bay may be the center of our universe, but how often do we actually get out on the water? It's time to make it happen.

Hornblower Cruises & Events is a no-brainer way to make the most of the bay—they have yachts, fresh food, and cocktail service, hello. Here are five ways to see the city with the cool bay breeze in your hair.

Friday Afternoon: Lunch Cruise

Forget eating at your desk. Grab your coworkers and escape the office with Hornblower Cruises & Events to enjoy views of Alcatraz and the city skyline as you chow on food from the buffet during this two-hour excursion.

Friday Night: Supper Club Cruise

Kick off your weekend with with drinks, dancing, local DJ beats, and a buffet dinner inspired by international and American favorites. Celebrating a birthday or something special? Even better!

Saturday Morning: Champagne Brunch Cruise

The best Saturdays begin with bottomless mimosas—take it to the water for a truly epic weekend. After all, when was the last time your French toast came with live music and an up-close view of the Golden Gate Bridge?

Saturday Night: Dinner Cruise

The shimmering Bay Lights set the mood for a romantic outing complete with an elegant four-course dinner made onboard with local, seasonal ingredients, followed by a turn on the dance floor as Coit Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid loom overhead.

Cocktail Cruises

Hornblower's happy hour cruises—Social Sundays and Alive After Five (6pm on Thursday nights)—are a chill way to sail the bay with a cash bar, live DJ, and a tour of all your favorite local landmarks. Make Sunday a Funday, or take your colleagues for the best happy hour ever.
