Description: Bay Voyager is happy to announce the opening of our new location at Pier...
Bay Voyager is happy to announce the opening of our new location at Pier 39 in San Francisco! The range of tours offered by Bay Voyager include viewing historic ships, visiting former mooring sites of abandoned gold rush ships, and experiencing active estuaries populated by cargo ships and tug boats. You’ll see the San Francisco waterfront, cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Alcatraz, Under the Bay Bridge to the Port of Oakland, past AT&T Park (Home to the San Francisco Giants) and Back to Pier 39. While Bay Voyager does have specific routes, deviation is an integral part of the experience, making each adventure an engaging and exhilarating encounter.According to owner and captain, Charles Jennings, “we feel there is a need to provide more intimate and individualized tours that travel closer and give more in depth guided tours. By being in a small and agile vessel, guests can have an up close and personal adventure while traveling to all corners of the always-fascinating bay.”

It can't get any better than this. If you love a good story and a lot of fun, this is the place you have to go. Our guides name was Charles Good person he is trying to keep the bay clean by picking up trash in the water. He knows the city and the trip well. He stopes and talks... More

Two adults and two teenage boys had a fantastic trip. Charles was great fun, and hugely knowledgeable about the San Francisco area so we all learnt a lot as well as having a great time. We all loved it - thank you!

As noted by previous reviews Captain Charles does an excellent job making sure everyone enjoys the trip. I traveled with my two teen boys and they thought the ride was exciting. My youngest rode in the front seat and had a blast as the front of the boat bounced over the waves. The boat tour starts with a fast ride... More

Captain Charles was great. A very educational and entertaining tour. At first I was worried that it may not hold the attention of my family since we are regular boaters but he kept things exciting. My kids loved it. A no brainier choice compared to the other options out there. Don't let the pictures intimidate you. Being close to the... More

Found out about the Bay Voyager from the reviews here and was not disappointed. Thrilling ride racing around the Bay and out under the Golden Gate and into the Pacific with Captain Charles. Highly recommended; a great way to spend an afternoon. The splash of the salty sea and speedboat made for an enjoyable and highly personalized trip and experience.... More

This is obviously not a cheap attraction but you're paying for quality, fun and excitement. We went with our 12 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We all loved it. This is not your average put-put boring harbour cruise in a big boat. Charles met us and decked us out in high quality waterproofs and briefed us well.... More

Captain Charles is a true gem! He made the experience so much fun I don't think we ever stopped smiling. Don't waste your time on other tours of the bay! Bay Voyager is the best. My daughter is still talking about how much fun she had and my mother and aunt and myself we are equally impressed. It isn't very... More

There is a reason this is the number one attraction is San Francisco. It is great! You really see so much, more than you can see any other way. Captain Charles really makes the trip, both his knowledge and friendliness really make for a great time. I went with my two kids (10 and 12) and it was their favorite... More

This trip was so much fun and not your typical boat ride. We did this ride as part of an incentive trip and everyone LOVED it! Would definitely do again next time we are visiting San Fran!!
