SAN FRANCISCO AT ITS BEST: VIEWS FROM THE WATER

Many of San Francisco’s most iconic sites are along the waterfront Embarcadero – a great way to see them all at one time is aboard a Hornblower Yacht

 

San Francisco, California (September 26, 2013) – From the Golden Gate to Bay Bridges, and everything in between, one of the best ways to see the iconic skyline views of San Francisco is from the water aboard a Hornblower Cruises yacht. 

Visitors from all over the world will be treated to some of the best sightseeing in the city while sailing with Hornblower Cruises & Events.  With brunch, supper club and dinner cruises throughout the year, guests have ample opportunity to see the city, while dining on signature cuisine crafted onboard.

Visitors to San Francisco can also enjoy a trip to Alcatraz Island.  Situated in the middle of the bay, Alcatraz Island is only accessible by buying tickets from Alcatraz Cruises, a sister company of Hornblower Cruises & Events.  After a 15-minute boat ride from Pier 33, visitors can spend the day exploring the island and listening to the award-winning audio tour of the cell house.

Please visit www.hornblower.com or www.alcatrazcruises.com for more information.
