Park in their lot directly at Pier 3 for of $10, but arrive early since it's smaller in size.

We parked in the Hornblower Lot and it was only $10. There are other lots nearby but they aren't cheaper. You could take BART and get off at Embaradero and walk two piers West of the Ferry Bldg.

Pier 3 is easy to access from BART and MUNI so I don't understand why anyone would park for the cruise. We went on a Monday afternoon and the trip started off with a picture (later offered as a $20 keepsake). Then you enter the ship and walk up...continued

This was the most romantic cruise that I have gone on. The service was wonderful. I would recommend this event to anyone. It was not just a couple affair, but it was a family affair also. Great job to Goldstar, for representing great vendors.

It was amazing especially on a sunny day! The views and the food itself is well worth the prize. I'll definitely do it again soon!

See a sample buffet lunch menu.


This lunch cruise circles the storied facility that once housed Al Capone and George “Machine Gun” Kelly, as a guide chronicles the island’s history and natural features. Guests also enjoy a gourmet lunch buffet and introductions to Angel Island, known as the Ellis Island of the West, and the famed San Francisco waterfront. The tour is a must for both visitors and locals.

The cruise is approximately two hours long.

Note: Cruise does not stop/disembark at Alcatraz Island.
