The Premiere San Francisco Luxury Yacht Cruise

The Only Way to Become Royalty on Your Next Day Off


Indulge in Extravagant Treatment

When was the last time you were treated like royalty? Your staff doting over your every whim, making you the center of attention? Wouldn’t you like to feel that again?

At Empress Luxury Yacht Cruises, your friends, coworkers, and family will become your royal retinue, treated with the care and respect due their station. Get ready to wield your scepter and dawn your crown. You and your retinue are next in line to brave the winds and rule the seas… or at least San Francisco Bay.

Gerry took the boat all the way underneath the bridge, providing a view I think very few of our guests had ever seen.

Witness the Rarest of Views

No honking traffic. No stop-and-go congestion. Only the breathtaking view. Ten million fireflies painting every sharp corner of the San Francisco skyline with fine strands of luminous silk. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and nowhere is that more self-evident than from the water.

Look upon your kingdom of dancing lights, as you set sail from Pier 39, heading out past Alcatraz and Angel Island, and under the Golden Gate Bridge. See the singular most spectacular view in the Bay Area, all from your throne upon the waves. Your guests will only be visiting for a short time. What kind of impression do you want to make?

The view was absolutely stunning! Golden Gate Bridge, the yacht... I mean everything was incredible!

Absolutely bar none the best choice we made for our wedding. Everything went like clockwork, without a hitch. The Food was outstanding in quality and presentation. The premium liquor package was just that, premium.
— Tony P. Greenbrae, CA
Really, no one else compares. Their yacht is beautifully maintained, they are incredibly flexible, and they have great prices. Our wedding day aboard the Empress yacht was absolutely beautiful.
— N G. Walnut Creek, CA
The only thing we would have changed would have been to add another hour to our cruise. People were having so much fun, and the views of the Bay were a spectacular backdrop to the event, no one wanted it to end.
