Departs from Pier 45, Fisherman's Wharf
San Francisco Fleet Week is an annual public event that honors the contributions of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces while advancing cooperation and knowledge among civilian- and military-based Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response personnel.
The O'Brien participates with a cruise around San Francisco Bay, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge for amazing views of the San Francisco waterfront, the visiting Navy ships, and the air show featuring the US Navy Blue Angels.
Food and Drink
All food and drink on board is provided complimentary.
Hot dogs, Hamburgers, Clam Chowder by Bistro Boudin
Boudin is San Francisco’s oldest continuously operating business. Today, they still bake their sourdough fresh every day using the same mother dough cultivated from a gold miner’s sourdough starter. Boudin has extended their love of San Francisco and their place in its culinary history to offer a full range of the dining options—from specialty breads and casual breakfast, lunch and dinner—to a full service dining experience at Fisherman’s Wharf.
Brews by Fort Point Beer Co
Fort Point Beer Company is a New American Brewery, shaped by San Franciscan values: quality craftsmanship and a spirit of innovation. Fort Point creates balanced, thoughtful beers that reference traditional styles, but are no means bound to them. The Presidio-based brewery strives to make beers that tell a story, inspire an idea, and are thoroughly enjoyable.
On board, we will have Westfalia, a Nuremberg Red Ale, and Export, a Dortumunder Style Lager.
Wines by Valiance Wines
