My daughter and I wanted to learn a bit more about the San Francisco Bay and were told this would be a one hour long cruise with narrative about the Bay area. The price was $28 p.p., which I thought was a rip off, but we decided to give it a try. Well, first of all, they were Extremely disorganized... More

We purchased our tickets on Travelzoo for half price. We took our granddaughter who really enjoyed it. We stood most of the time in front of the boat. It was relaxing and worth the money.

Taking a ferry ride from Jack London Square to San Francisco Ferry Building is a great way to spend a day in the City. I took my wife for a lunch trip to Fisherman's Warf on the weekend just for fun. The Bay was flat and the ride across the water on a catamaran ferry was most enjoyable and smooth.... More

We took the ferry to Sausalito to visit Muir Woods. The ferry left on time and was a nice ride over to Sausalito. It was $22 per person, round trip. It's a great way to get over there.

We decided to go on this cruise because we didn't book tickets to Alcatraz in time. My first choice would have been Alcatraz but since we were too late in booking I would say this is an okay alternative. We decided to take the Escape From the Rock cruise for $5 more. I expected to hear more about Alcatraz, but... More

An hour long cruise around the Bay taking in the major sights with running commentary. The ticket was part of the City Pass which made it worth it. Try get the seats on the top deck, aft starboard which will give the best views of the sites!

Took the Bay Cruise which was an hour long trip along the Golden Gate coast line, underneath the Golden Gate Bridge then around Alcatraz Island. The views were great and the pre recorded information through the speakers was decent. Got it half price as well through Travelzoo so made it even more worth the money!!

We took my grandson on the 30 minute Rocket Boat on the San Francisco Bay. Children must be 40 inches to ride. It is a thrill ride with blaring rock music that caters to teens and young adults but was great fun for all ages. The skipper headed straight for the wake of a container ship and bounced us through... More

We took the 90 mins Escape From The Rock. The Cruize was fun filled with Good information about the historical Golden Gate and about the history of Alcatraz and surroundings. Friendly employees on board. Great view of the Golden Gate. You can stand in front of the ship and take some great memorial photos.

Took this boat to Angle Island. It was fast and a real fun ride. The staff where not too people friendly, but they got us where we needed to go. I would ride with them again.
