San Francisco, California Cruise Port Information

The city by the bay

Morning fog rolls in, blanketing the city and giving it the feeling of a dream. Fishermen unload the day’s catch next to sea lions lounging on the pier. A cable car clatters down the street, bell ringing in the warm California sun. It’s easy to see why San Francisco has captured hearts for over 200 years. This gateway to the Golden State has world-class cuisine, unique architecture, diverse neighborhoods and fascinating history, all waiting to welcome you.
