Morning in Marin Seaplane Tour

$459 Per Person
Duration (approx.) approx 6 hours

This multi-adventure day allows you to see the best of Marin by land and by sea! Our partners at Fogcutter Tours have prepared a day trip to Muir Woods, a flight over the golden coast, and sightseeing in Sausalito paired with a locally prepared lunch to top the day. A ferry ride back to San Francisco encompasses all the must-see views in the North Bay.

The Experience

The morning begins with pickup from your hotel and a drive over the Golden Gate Bridge to the nearby wilderness of Marin County. We arrive early in the Woods, before most visitors, so you can experience the serenity of the grove in peace and quiet. When you are ready, we will drive back out into the Marin Headlands with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline in the background.
Retrace your morning adventure over the Marin Headlands and the redwoods on a Golden Gate Seaplane Tour, then turn left over the legendary Golden Gate Bridge. Continue on above Crissy Field, Downtown San Francisco, Oracle Park, and Alcatraz. Finish with a smooth landing back in Sausalito.

On your return, we will pop the cork on a champagne toast and enjoy a locally-sourced, organic lunch in the Marin sunshine. Finally, you will be dropped off in Sausalito to enjoy the village’s arty shops, funky houseboats, and charming cafes before boarding a ferry back to San Francisco’s Pier 39.

Experiences fill quickly, we recommend you reserve your tour 1-2 weeks out. The tour includes entrance to Muir Woods. Information on passenger minimum and weight per seat is available in our FAQ section at the bottom.

The highlight of our family trip to SF. Going over the Golden Gate in the morning sun and into Muir woods before the crowds was perfect. Touring the headlands gave us some amazing views of the city across the Bay. Eric’s local knowledge kept us engaged and entertained throughout our trip. The views from the seaplane cannot be beat, flying over downtown, the Bay, and the islands, including Alcatraz. All followed by ice creams on the harbourside in Sausalito, before catching the ferry back to the city. If you do one tour in SF then I thoroughly recommend this.

A fantastic way to see two of San Francis is highlights- Muir Woods and Sausilio with an awesome flight over SF city. We had been looking for a smaller more local tour company in this area and Fogcutter Tours was perfect. There wasn’t a question that Eric couldn’t answer. He was great company and Davey Jones Deli made awesome sandwiches for after our flight! We really loved this tour for the mix of touring, flight, and then free time in Sausalito before making our own way back to SF via the included ferry tickets.

A fantastic day around SF. Everything was perfect and the whole family enjoyed it very much. Logistics were impeccable and we very much appreciated the right blend of spectacular views and sceneries eg flying around the bay in a seaplane and giving us the opportunity to get closer to real SF. We will certainly remember this day fondly.
