Continue above Crissy Field, Downtown San Francisco, AT&T Park - home of the hugely successful Major League Baseball team the San Francisco Giants - then over the infamous island prison of Alcatraz. Finally your flight will be completed with a pass by the historic Angel Island - the Immigrant Gateway to the West and a smooth landing back in Sausalito’s Richardson Bay.

Board the ferry to Alcatraz Island at Pier 33, and set off across San Francisco Bay, admiring views of the bridge and city skyline.
