One of the best things to do in San Francisco in August is to head out on the water. You will find more than a dozen cruises leaving Fisherman's Wharf each day.
The most popular is the 60-minute Bay Cruise. It leaves several times a day from Fisherman's Wharf and takes you past the Palace of Fine Arts, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and around Alcatraz. On board, you can listen to narration about San Francisco and its attractions as you cruise along.
The Champagne and Mimosa cruise is perfect for those wanting a relaxing 2-hour trip on the water. You cruise around the bay as you enjoy two drinks (Champagne, mimosas, beer, white wine, soda, or water). At 11am, you will raise your glass for a toast under the Golden Gate Bridge. This cruise leaves from Pier 39.
Also recommended is checking out the 90-minute Sailing Cruise on the Privateer. This small group cruise (only 30 passengers allowed on board) offers you a close up look at SF's top waterfront attractions. It also goes under the Golden Gate Bridge, past Alcatraz, and by the Bay Bridge.
