BUSY ON THE BOAT BUT PLENTY OF SEATING AND REFRESHMENTS.
NICE AUDIO TO ACCOMPANY THE TRIP WITH SOME GOOD FACTS ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO
Go on this cruise for amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco city skyline.
The bay cruise was great! We loved having the earphones which gave us information on what we were seeing. View amazing! And we lucked out with a beautiful sunny day!
Great Cruise we wished we'd taken a longer one. Enjoyed hearing the history of SF and the Islands.
My friend and I went on this boat ride for her birthday and we both loved it! Although we only live about 45 minutes away, we learned a lot of interesting things about the history of San Francisco and the surrounding cities. All of the staff are very enjoyable and hospitable and a pleasure to be around. I recommend this cruise to everyone.
What a wonderful experience it was taking the Golden Gate Bay Cruise. It was everything and so much more. Got great pictures.
Viator has good prices for the bay cruise, and they have good service . We enjoyed the cruise and was also very interesting to learn about the city
Great way to view the San Francisco bay. Well run and enjoyable.
Had a wonderful cruise - very lucky with the weather, couldn't have been brighter. Very informative and some breathtaking views.
A really good cruise with an amazing view on San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz!!!! One tip, put you on the left side at the beginning to follow the audio guide and then on the right side on the way back for the perfect view on Alcatraz!!!!
Perfect cruise under the Golden Gate when the weather is looking good ! Crew and friendly atmosphere, I recommend !
The views on this cruise were spectacular! The audio commentary was a real treat. There were a few times when the reception was a bit off and parts of the commentary were missed but overall a must do for anyone traveling to San Francisco!
the tour was fantastic, the guided tour was informative and would do it again
We had a great time! The weather was wonderful and the views spectacular.
This cruise was wonderful. I had been to San Franciso several times in the past, but this was the first time that I had done the "tourist" thing. I was so glad that I took this trip. It was awesome. The weather was a little windy, but just for a short stretch of the trip and when it did become windy, there was enough room inside for all. Great trip!
Trip around the Bay was interesting and informative. Worth the price.
I took the first boat out so it wasn't crowded. The weather was great, some great photo opportunities, and just so relaxing. My earphones didn't work so I have no clue what the audio entails but I didn't really care.
This cruise was great. It was a little foggy that day but the golden gate bridge was amazing.
Another smooth check- in at the ticket booth from Viator. Highly recommend.
We all really enjoyed this cruise. We had planned to do this on our first day, making it a nice slow start to our trip. However, the weather didn't clear that day and so we decided to wait as the 'open ticket' allowed. The location of pier 43 was a little tricky to locate. It was at the back and behind an open car park. We lined up for a trip later the next day and were boarded onto a smaller boat than expected. No real issue, but the larger boats looked that little more impressive but maybe they board according to the numbers taking that particular trip. The commentary was clear and good. Having just ridden bikes over the bridge it was nice to see it from underneath. We also liked seeing Alcatraz Island from the other side. Am pleased we decided to take this trip - a nice start to the vacation.
