Great Tour. We only have a few yours to see the San Francisco Bay and we felt this tour showed us a lot in a short time. 👍


Quiet and very calm large boat even during windy day and heavy fog. Very friendly staff. Was hard to hear narration outside.


The tour was very informative. There were beautiful views and their was plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We had a blast and would definitely come back.


Clean Boat, friendly staff, beautiful views mad this the perfect day on a gorgeous sunny day in San Francisco ❤️


Our boat ride was awesome!! My family had a memorable time. The crew was great and helpful. Thank you


Great experience, wonderful view, time and distance perfect. I'd recommend this tour. Friendly staff and reasonably prices.


When I booked the trip, I was under the impression that the tour narration would be given over headphones, and available in multiple languages. This was not the case, however. The tour was given in English, and over the loudspeakers. Nobody ever offered an alternative language. When sitting outside, it wasn’t even possible to hear the narration over the noise of the boat engines. The narration would also regularly cut out for periods of time, so it’s hard to tell what information we missed.


New and very clean boats. Helpful staff. Views amazing. Worth visiting later in the afternoon otherwise might not see much because of fog


Enjoyed seeing the golden gate and bay bridges and learning more about them. The narration throughout the boat trip was very informative. Dress warmly- the fog rolls in and it gets chilly.


Getting to experience what I'd only seen on TV was amazing. Also it was freezing cold so I doubt anyone escaped Alcatraz!
