Boaters in had a real treat this weekend during Fleet Week.

Fleet Week in San Francisco Bay

Fleet Week in San Francisco Bay by Photoren

Fleet Week is a United States Navy, United States Marine Corps and United States Coast Guard tradition in which active military ships recently deployed in overseas operations dock in a variety of major cities for one week. Once the ships dock, the crews can enter the city and visit its tourist attractions. At certain hours, the public can take a guided tour of the ships. Often, Fleet Week is accompanied by military demonstrations and airshows such as provided by the Blue Angels.

Always a mad house on the water, this years fleet week in did not disappoint, with sailboats and power boats all jockeying for position to watch the planes perform their amazing displays.

The airshow was, as always, fantastic at this year’s Fleet Week in San Francisco.

    I wish I could have been there, I love Fleet Week. All those planes amaze me and bedazzle my children.

  2. Kris says:

    October is my favorite month every year because we have the annual fleetweek celebration here in the Bay Area and the nice warm weather. Wished it’s two weeks celebration instead of one week.

    Love those blue angels!

  4. I arrived in time to see the Blue Angel show on Sunday (yesterday) and got some great photos this time. Next year I plan to get a much earlier start and find a better spot for viewing the show in more depth.

    Glad to see more folks coming out and enjoying the event.
