I took the bay tour which goes right under the Golden Gate Bridge and that was a great way to see the bridge. The tour goes around Alcatraz island with explanations provided. It was a comfortable and nice tour out on the water.

We walked and walked during our stay in SF. The bay is beautiful,enormous and quite awe-inspiring! Enjoy views of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz. Stroll around the marina port. There's plenty to see!

We went on a brunch cruise and gave it a whole different experience. it was perfect weather and the food was wonderful. The scenery was great and going under the GG bridge was a new way of looking at it.

The weather was colder than expected but what was more surprising were the foggy days that we encountered. Made for great picture taking though. We watched surfers trying to catch some waves and lots of kites being flown.

We went on the early boat, so not too many people on the island when we were there. Head sets guide you with commentary from real guards and inmates which make it feel like a personal tour, both me and my wife loved it and we don’t usually go for this sort or tourist type trip. What topped it off... More
