San Francisco is one of America's most popular tourist destinations, but you've never seen it like this. Experience the beauty and grandeur of the city's most famous landmarks from the air in this incredible seaplane tour!

Activity Highlights

  • Window seat guaranteed
  • Fly over the Golden Gate Bridge
  • See Downtown SF, the Giants Baseball stadium, Alcatraz and more
  • Take incredible aerial photos

Did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge is one of California's most popular tourist sites? Only Disneyland gets more visitors! But even if you've already visited San Francisco and seen the Bridge, our seaplane tour will leave you breathless.

Taking off from the lovely bayside village at Sausalito, we fly at low altitude (and nice and slow) so you can get all the photos you want. We follow the coast over part of the 80,000-acre Golden Gate National Reserve past Baker Beach - notorious for its "clothing optional" policy - before turning left over the Golden Gate Bridge herself for the most incredible photo opportunity of your life!

From there, we continue above Crissy Field - the ex-military airfield that's now a national park with many of its 1920s buildings intact - and on to Downtown San Francisco. We fly over the city as we head out to the South Beach district for a good look at the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium (AT&T Park), then head out over the bay.

We'll fly over the famous Alcatraz Island, home to the prison that held such famous inmates as Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and the Birdman, and from which no prisoner ever escaped, despite 14 separate attempts!

Finally, we'll turn back towards home with a fly-by of the historic Angel Island, known as the "Immigrant Gateway to the West", and a smooth landing back in Richardson Bay.
