Sure. You can hop on the standard ferry to Alcatraz and explore the prison with the rest of the tourists. Or you can catch a ferry over to Sausalito and see a few parts of the Bay. But this combo-tour tour combines best of both worlds. The 'Bay Voyager' is a ship that takes you closer to the sights than any other ship. Make use of complimentary wet-weather gear in case you get a little too close to Mother Nature. After your RIB Boat experience, head  over to Pier 33 to join the famous Alcatraz Prison tour and see the grounds and the notorious solitary confinement wing.


  • Bay cruise and Alcatraz combo tour
  • Explore the former island prison of Alcatraz with a self-guided audio tour
  • Zip across San Francisco Bay on the RIB boat
  • Admire views of the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Choice of several departures throughout the day

This was a very enjoyable RIB Boat experience. The guide was very friendly, comical and knowledgeable. He made it a very enjoyable experience. It was a glorious afternoon and we managed to ride all the way out and under the Golden Gate Bridge. I have 2 children aged 14 and 16 and they both enjoyed the experience too. Would highly recommend.

A fantastic way to see the bay, golden and bay bridges. Charles was a good captain of the boat, very knowledgeable and fun. This is a must do trip, with only 12 people on the boat you get a more personalised experience. Excellent quality coats and trousers are provided so you don't get wet or cold.

Many prior trips to SF.... first time seeing it from Rib Boat.... great fun and much better than a conventional cruise boat type experience.

Awesome ! Alcatraz was great, but what I loved the most was the trip on the boat.
The guide and pilot, Charles, was very friendly. He gave a lot of interesting comments regarding the history and places around, kindly took photo of the group on demand, stopped at the nicest points of view so we could take nice pictures. He took a real care of his passengers and was very welcome and funny. I warmly recommend that tour!

We had a great time on our adventure. The ride to the edge of the Bay was super fun and Captain Charles was very knowledgeable about all the areas we saw. You can tell he loves his city and he had wonderful insight and stories to tell. A great trip all round!

Fantastic ride, great crew and worth doing when in San Francisco. Will definitely do it again if I have the chance to get back to my favourite US city!

This was a great combination tour. The RIB boat was fun and exciting and a great way to see the bridges and San Fran skyline. The guide was very informed and you could tell how much he loved the sea and all things marine. He took loads of photos and uploaded them really quickly. Alcatraz is a must do when in San Francisco. The audio tour is put together brilliantly and I found it very interesting.

Absolutely fantastic trip on the rib and was an unexpected bigger highlight to our day even above Alcatraz tour. Our guide was excellent and a wonderful way to see the San Francisco coastline.
