To get a different view of the cityscape or to just relax and escape the busy city hop on a boat operated by the Zürichsee Schifffahrtsgesellschaft (ZSG). These boats are included in the public transportation network, so the Zürich Card is valid. Make sure to buy a ticket for additional zones if you're doing a longer trip on the lake. The Zürich Card is valid as far as Thalwil and Erlenbach, resp. on the small cruises. I did a trip to Rapperswil and bought a day ticket for the additional zones for CHF 16 which was good on the S-Bahn back to Zürich (the trip to Rapperswil takes almost two hours one way).
Boats to different destinations depart every 30 minutes from Bürkliplatz, which is the main hub. Buy your ticket at the ticket office in advance or, if close to departure, right on the boat.
The motor boat Helvetia is quite large and has a nice restaurant in 2nd class (don't know about 1st class, which is upstairs).
They also have boats that go on the Limmat river as far as Schweizerisches Landesmuseum.
