My pal Molly alerts me that San Francisco's Red And White Fleet has some cool fall specialty cruises coming up for Fleet Week, when San Francisco briefly becomes a Navy town again. "Over the weekend of October 8-10, Fleet Week takes over San Francisco with a series of Navy-inspired events, entertainment and the legendary Blue Angels air show," says Molly's note. And for a ringside seat on all this action, you can't do better than hopping aboard a Red And White Fleet vessel. You'll get the best views of the daily air shows from the bay. But they do book up, so plan ahead for these popular trips.
Details: Departing at 2 p.m. on both Saturday, October 9 and Sunday, October 10, the Fleet Week cruise price includes appetizers and one complimentary beverage. Additional snacks and beverages are available on-board for purchase. Cost is $58 per adult (18+); $36 for youth (5-17); and $52 per person for groups of 15+ adults.
