I’ve been on a number of boats throughout California and keep coming back to this one. These guys run a tight ship, the deckhands are really helpful, the captains are really nice guys, and they catch fish. I’ve gone on the salmon, halibut & striped bass, & the rockfish and crab combo. They’ve helped keep my freezer stocked.

By chance happened upon Bass Tub boat which offers 1 hour tours of the San Francisco Bay. So much nicer than getting on a big boat; this 1 hour intimate journey was great. No frills but lots of laughs as the captain of the ship tells tales. Highly recommend getting on the water when in San Fran to see the Golden Gate (closer up) along with views of Alcatraz Island and the City skyline. Costs $15 a person. P.S. You need to climb a ladder up and down; they'll assist.

Took this tour on a whim whilst walking along Fishermans Wharf and we weren't disappointed, it was great. The Captain was very knowledgeable as well as funny. The views under the bridge were amazing, you see so much more than on the bus tours. We had taken the Big Bus tour/Alcatraz combo tour the day before which cost us £130 each but we learned just as much if not more from these guys for $15!! Save your money and take this trip!

So much fun and very informative. These guys have it down, find them on the Wharf...and you will not regret the hour for the tour.

We had some time to kill and were walking around Fisherman's Wharf when we heard two guys saying 1 hour tour for $15. So we jumped on the ship and were pleasantly surprised! The Captain and First Mate were both very friendly and informative. They knew all about the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, and told a very interesting narrative while we were on the tour. They came around and took pictures of anyone who wanted photos too. Don't sit at the front of the boat unless you want to get wet.
