The legendary Red and White Fleet cruises San Francisco Bay.

The legendary Red and White Fleet cruises San Francisco Bay.

This week’s prize: 2 free tickets for the Red and White Fleet’s Bay Cruise.

The family-owned Red and White Fleet was founded in 1892 by seventeen-year-old Thomas Crowley, using $80 he had saved. Crowley’s inaugural boat, a used Whitehall, was just eighteen feet long and less than five feet wide, and he rowed it alone through the waters of the bay.

Like other boatmen in the area, Tom transported not only miscellaneous goods and supplies, but also professionals whose work relied upon such travel. Serving the ship traffic twenty-four hours a day, Tom soon expanded his fleet to three Whitehalls. He incorporated in 1906 as the Crowley Launch and Tugboat Company.

Today, the Red and White Fleet offers cruises under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz; a two-hour cruise around the Bay at sunset; and a 90-minute exploration of the city’s history, architecture and Native American culture.
