What You Can Expect

San Francisco RocketBoat Ride

Skim Across San Francisco Bay on This High-Speed Adventure

Start this exhilarating San Francisco RocketBoat ride from Pier 39, where you’ll board your 70-foot (21-meter) watercraft, considered the fastest vessel on San Francisco Bay. Be greeted by your captain who wields his expertise at the wheel during a thrilling 30-minute ride.

Buckle in and prepare to soar across the water at speeds of up to 55 mph (81 kph). You’ll zip past the Embarcadero, AT&T Park, Treasure Island and Alcatraz — even travel under the Bay Bridge — while you listen to live commentary on these famous sights. Settle your nerves with a fun rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack and the occasional stop so you can grab your camera for one-of-a-kind photo ops of San Francisco landmarks.

Arrive early for a prime seat at the front of the boat, which tends to stay drier, or sit toward the back if you don’t mind getting wet. Complimentary ponchos are available upon request. You’re dropped off back at Pier 39 at the end of your exciting ride.
