This was so much fun - made you feel like a kid again. And the looks you got from the street were hysterical. The duck bill kazoos are a riot and our driver was great - full of lots of interesting info and corny jokes. And going into the water with the same vehicle was amazing - the kids all got to drive and the captain made sure they all got their pictures. Was a great way to spend an afternoon going around the city. Definitely worth the time and $.

Excellent way to see sights of San Francisco along with humour of your driver. Whilst on the water each passenger was given the opportunity to drive vehicle. We took a late trip and therefore caught a fantastic sunset. Good views of Bay Bridge.

Our tour was from Fisherman's Wharf and hit North Beach, the Financial section and then into McCovey Cove at AT&T Park. Captain Van was hilarious. The banter starts before you board when they pass out those ridiculous but infectiously funny duck-bill kazoos. He has a well-tuned schtick, but his enthusiasm makes it seem like it's fresh material. He was great with the kids, but knew how to pick on the right adults, too. It's definitely a participation tour, especially if you sit toward the front.
He was quite informative overall, but did pass on some misinformation on the construction of the new section of the Bay Bridge.

What a fun tour, Capt. Van was great and kept everyone laughing while giving a great city tour. The highlight is actually going into SF bay and going by the stadium for the Giants. This is a great 1 1/2 hour initial overall tour so you can see the areas, Chinatown, union square and others and decide what areas interest you for more sightseeing later.

Capt. Van was great with the children allowing them to steer while we were on the water.

Great tour.
