San Francisco’s enchanting evening skyline, stretching from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate, makes Hornblower’s twilight outings particularly memorable.
Local Bay Area residents choose the Dinner Dance Cruise for birthdays, anniversaries and special evenings out. Set against twinkling city lights and legendary vistas, the experience includes an elegant four-course dinner, live music and dancing. Watch the sun set over San Francisco while cruising the bay, and enjoy a romantic four-course dinner freshly prepared onboard by an expert team of chefs. After dinner, dance to live music or watch the city skyline drift by from the outdoor decks. The magic begins the moment you step aboard! Scenic highlights of your cruise include the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, Tiburon and Sausalito, the Bay Bridge and San Francisco’s piers and city skyline.

"We have now booked 4 times on your dinner cruise. The food, service and music is of a very high standard and I will book again when I return to San Francisco."
– Mary S
"I have lived in San Francisco for 13 years, and have never seen the city like I did at my 40th Birthday Party on Hornblower. It was awesome being with friends in a setting so unlike any other that is within the city. Not to mention Hornblower should write a book on their tasty Signature Cocktails."
– Jose M
"During the meal, my partner and I discussed how we really didn’t expect the food to be as great as the view. Hornblower represented the well known tastes of San Francisco in a spectacular way. The chef even came over and spoke to us."
– Warren T
"The food and service were fantastic – and the views from the boat were amazing!"
– Megan S
"We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to celebrate our grandfather's 90th birthday! The tables we had were perfect since our group likes to dance. :) We created many great memories. Thanks again!"
