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.

Captain Charles is awesome, we had a blast. I give this trip a five out of five.

This was very worth the money. The boat trip under the Golden Gate Bridge was better than I had suspected. My main goal was to go to Alcatraz, but a big part of me enjoyed the boating excursion more.

We booked our San Fransico trip a bit late and could not get tickets for Alcatraz. I found this tour which included alcatraz tickets. It did seem expensive but the reviews were good. I have to say this tour really was amazing, Captain Charles was a brilliant host. He has a great knolwedge of the city and bay. Our 3 kids absolutely loved the speed boat ride, although it was the 23rd December we were provided with plenty of warm clothing to wear and felt very comfortable on the boat. All the information provided for this tour made it very easy to collect tickets and find where we needed to be. 5 stars definitely!

This was great! All the Alcatraz tickets were sold out and this was a way we could get tickets closer to travel time.

It was great buy such a shame you had to book two trips. Only wanted one trip but had to purchase two sight seeing trips. I don't think this is very good.

Bay sightseeing tour at 4pm Sunday 8/20 before red eye back to the east coast was the perfect end to an amazing 5 days in San Fran. Don't think twice about booking this experience. Captain Charles was awesome - explained the history of the bay area and got us up close to some of the most iconic landmarks - stopping under the Golden Gate bridge for some unique pictures.

The boat ride sightseeing was a fun tour! Went with my husband and 4 teenage daughters and they said it was the best part of our trip to San Francisco. It goes under the bridge and gave us the best pics of the bridge from the whole vacation. It goes as far as China Beach on one end and then under bay bridge over to the Ferry Building on the other end. Also close up of the sea lions. The captain stops periodically to narrate the area with historical facts and gives plenty of time to take pictures. Because of the speed of the boat it was easy to cover such a large area. There was plenty of time in between the 2 parts of this package to grab lunch at the wharf. If you are looking for something exciting to do - this is great choice!

I've been to SF many times but have never seen the city from the water like this. What a great experience! Charles was a great tour guide, entertaining and informative. The hour past by so quickly. I'd highly recommend this fast paced, thorough tour.
