The San Francisco WharfPass gives you admission to your five activities and tours in and around San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf for one discount price. The WharfPass is good for 24 hours, and represents a savings of over $25. One adult WharfPass is only $69—individually the attractions can cost much more.
Tours include an open top double decker tour from CitySightseeing, a duckboat tour, a cable car tour, a Grey Line trolley tour, and three others. Choose from a Bay cruise with the Red and White fleet or the Blue & Gold Fleet, or upgrade to a tour with Alcatraz Cruises.

The San Francisco Wharf Pass is no longer available. Vacation Pass recommends the Go San Francisco Pass as a step up. It includes most of the attractions (plus about 20 more) and is in the same price range.
