Trip was great. I've done it before and will do again next year. I told a friend how fun it was and she did it too and liked it. The only bad thing is when you sit on benches to see, people stand in front of you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This a great trip, the chance to go under both bridges is worth the price. This was a very clear day and the water was smooth, maybe on other not so nice days this coud be a rough ride, but ours was great.

My wife and I took her 90 year old parents on this cruise. It was a lot of fun, the crew were exceptionally polite, the audio was really informative and we and her parents enjoyed it immensely. We would recommend the Bridge to Bridge Cruise for anyone looking for a lovely day on the bay, local or visitor.

Beautiful day on the SF Bay! The sights and audio presentation were very informative. Weather was mostly accommodating, although a little fog hid the top of the Golden Gate Bridge. Would recommend this cruise to anyone!
