The tour was excellent given its price.
Boat was comfortable and the ride was a blast!
Highly recommend doing this. The tour is informative, well organised and fun. Some amazing views of the bay and a wonderful experience.
This is worth every penny and you won't be disappointed!
If you're time is limited then this little cruise is perfect to see the main attractions. My time was very limited but I'm glad I was able to at least do this and see both the Golden Gate and Alcatraz. The sights were amazing and the information provided via the headset was very informative. The older gentleman on board was also very informative about the area.
We toook a mid-morning Bay Cruse Tour that was wonderful. The narration was most informative, One of the most interesting parts was the narrative by both a former prisioner and a guard talking about Alcatrez. The boat ride gave amply opportunity for photos and ideas for other vistas once back in San Francisco. Clearly weather conditions are pivotal for best enjoying this ride so plan ahead and be selective!
This cruise is perfect for those who don't have the time (or energy) to do several attractions separately. It runs over the course of 1 hour and starts off at Fisherman's Wharf (which is worth checking out anyway). It then takes you across the bay to the Golden Gate bridge, the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, and finally past Alcatraz before going back to shore. The tour is also quite informative and fills you in on the history of the city and its attractions.
The views of the Bay are quite nice and you can see a lot of the city (and of course take tons of photos).
Highly recommend it!
booking on line was easy-very well done...especially liked the earphones since I am very hard of hearing even with my hearing aids....enjoyed the tour.
