Took the 90min tour, we had a gentleman on the open top who was very informative, even when the recording on the tannoy carried on. The water was calm but the fog was a bit thick. This could not be helped due to the power of god. We did also the 60min tour the next day just to make sure we saw the Golden Gate Bridge. A very pleasant tour

Tiburon to Fisherman's Warf ferry eliminated!! We spent an hour on the user unfriendly web site for Blue and Gold trying to figure out and book a trip to Fisherman's Warf.

We missed the chance to do Alcatraz but then we so this option. We LOVED it! The tour took us out to Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and along the coast. During this time, there was information being shared as we approached the different areas (the two bridges, Angel Island, Pier 39, etc). We also went VERY slowly around Alcatraz TWICE with lots facts and stories. Great way to spend 90 minutes in SF!

Was attending a conference in SF and decided to go on the sunset cruise for some great views of the city and bridge. That part delivered! The tour was a good length, we got really great views and pictures. For that, I am glad we took the tour. Unfortunately, there was really loud music playing the whole time. My friend asked if it could be turned down at all and was told it was “a part of the experience”. I imagine they were going for a date night vibe maybe, but it was a bit off-putting. As mentioned before, it was VERY loud which made it hard to have conversations over. The music itself was one style, which then doesn’t cater to the variety of customers on board.

Since we missed getting a tour of Alcatraz this was a good second best. We got to go around the island and under the holden gate bridge. The guide offered some entertainment at the top of the ship. BRING JACKETS with hoods. It gets very windy and was choppy for the 3:30 tour.
