Full description
This 45 minute flight includes all the sights described in the Golden Gate Tour flight, but brings you the additional delights of the Bay Area’s dramatic coastline. This flight will begin with a take off from the sea base in the lovely bayside village of Sausalito just across the Golden Gate Bridge. You will then fly right over the Golden Gate National Reserve and out along the coast beyond the Golden Gate. This coastline has been sculpted by fantastic geologic forces over hundreds of millions of years, making the San Francisco Bay Area one of the most active seismic zones in the world. Fly out to the wide, sandy beaches of Stinson Beach, then over the majestic and ancient redwoods of Muir Woods and finally back over the legendary Golden Gate Bridge itself. Then, continue on above Crissy Field, downtown San Francisco, AT&T Park - home of the Major League Baseball World Champion the San Francisco Giants and 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. At checkout, you may choose to meet your tour at the Seaplane Base in Mill Valley or you may choose to book a roundtrip shuttle service from Fisherman's Wharf.
