Enter 2024 on a wild NYE party cruise in the Golden City aboard the Empress Yacht! We’re ending the year with a bang; cruising on The Bay, dancing, drinking, and getting the absolute best views of the annual fireworks show. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Order your tickets to this superb San Francisco New Year’s Eve yacht party now, before it’s too late.

End the year on the double-decker beauty known formerly as The Empress. A truly stylish vessel, this yacht sports hardwood finishings throughout its climate-controlled interior, and panoramic window displays on each deck. Take in the truly astonishing views of The Bay, and enjoy a sweet vantage point for the yearly fireworks show.

We’re not done yet, there’s a whole lot more to this epic San Francisco New Year's Eve party than just sights. From the moment you step aboard, you’ll hear the sounds of our live DJ cutting it up with a mix of the latest and greatest hits, anthems, and bangers. Grab a tasty app from the tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, then become acquainted with the bartender as you take advantage of the 3-hour open bar.

Don’t be shy, get social with us!! We know how much you just love capturing memories on that phone of yours. Why not share those memories with the rest of us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook? We wanna see all those awesome pics and vids too! So you better not forget to tag us. While you’re at it, use hashtag #NYEOnTheBay so everyone knows where the real party’s at.

We’ve told you everything needed to know about our San Francisco New Years Eve yacht party. Now all that’s left is to tell your friends, make those plans, maybe a new fit for the night, and order those tickets. Hurry, because these tickets won’t last long.
