Things to Do in San Francisco During Fleet Week

Things to Do in San Francisco During Fleet Week

Fleet Week comes to San Francisco once a year, with the US Navy docking in the bay for a week every October and treating locals and visitors alike to Blue Angels air shows and a parade of Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard ships on the city's waters. Here are some of the top things to do in San Francisco during Fleet Week.

Take a Bay Cruise

Whether by day or twilight, there's no better way to see the bay than from the water. Cruise to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge for the best views, or head to Alcatraz Island for a visit to the infamous historic prison. From the wide-open waters, you'll catch great views of Fisherman's Wharf, Fort Mason, Pier 39, and more than likely, the incredible Blue Angels. These famous fighter planes navigate the airspace using daredevil maneuvers.

See San Francisco on Foot

Enjoy time in the city with an in-depth walking tour, exploring a type of cuisine on a food tour or a specific neighborhood such as the Mission District or North Beach. Comprehensive half- and full-day city tours offer a great overview of San Francisco's main sights, with many taking in impressive displays of naval tradition and prowess from the Marina Green and Crissy Field.

See the Waterfront and Wharf by Segway

For an exciting way to explore the SF waterfront, piers, and Aquatic Park, take to the road on an environmentally friendly Segway tour. Tours include instruction and equipment and allow access to waterfront views unavailable to tour buses.

Go Sailing

You'll get a classic San Francisco Bay Area experience on a relaxing small-group sail around the bay. Board a small sailboat to glide past major sights, photo ops, and US Navy ships.
