The annual Opening Day on the Bay typically shows off over 100 historic workboats, fireboats, towboats, classic and contemporary craft.

This marks the official start of the San Francisco boating season.

Annual “Opening Day on the Bay” Boat Parade
Sunday, April 24, 2022
– Blessing of the fleet – 10:30a to 12:30p (approx)
– Boat parade – Noon to 2p (approx)
View from Crissy Field to Pier 39, SF
FREE to watch from the shore

Prior to the beginning of the parade is the Blessing of the Fleet. Every year the Corinthian invites all vessels of all sizes to participate in the Annual Blessing of the Pleasure Craft, by sailing or motoring past the blessing vessel in Raccoon Strait which typically starts around 10:30am to 12:30pm

The parade begins at noon. Boat Parade registration is free.

This is a unique opportunity to see the annual decorated boat parade which sails close to the shore, so land-based spectators can view from almost anywhere along SF’s northern shoreline.
