What You Can Expect

The Golden Gate Seaplane Tour will fly you directly out to the Pacific Coast and south to the Golden Gate Bridge. After flying over the bridge, you'll continue your flight over the Financial District and Downtown San Francisco, along the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, then north to Alcatraz, around Angel Island and along the picturesque towns of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito.

The flight lasts approximately 30 minutes and offers a great balance of sights from Marin to San Francisco.

Seaplanes are ideal for sightseeing and photography. Their high wings and large view windows present panoramic views and unrivaled photo opportunities. Experienced, knowledgeable pilots will point out landmarks as you cruise by at a leisurely pace.

Sausalito, a quiet, charming seaside town, is often compared to those found in the Mediterranean. Conclude your trip by spending time in Sausalito browsing the quaint shops, or ask your pilot about returning by ferry to San Francisco.

Your magical ride above the most spectacular scenery in the world awaits!

Every seat booked is guaranteed a window seat.
