Fortress San Francisco Cruise on the SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN Boarding begins 11:00am at Pier 45 in Fisherman's Wharf. Cruising from 12:00am to 4:00pm. During WWII, San Francisco Bay was considered a prime target for attack. To protect the flow of arms, troops and cargo ships flowing from the port, an amazing array of military weapons was put into place. Join us for the Fortress San Francisco Cruise to find out where those hidden defenses were. During the cruise, guests will have the chance to explore this historic ship’s galley, crew quarters, gun mounts, exhibits and the triple expansion steam engine—all while enjoying spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay. Cruises include all meals, beverages, live 40’s dance music and much more! See the triple expansion steam engine while under operation, watch the Captain and Pilot in action as they navigate the bay.
