An original and funny way to discover the east part of the bay (the boat doesn't go neither to Alcatraz nor the Bridge)! Be careful of the splash :-) you can't be nauseous I think as the boat always goes fast

This boat was a lot of fun, speeding under the Bay Bridge, 360 turns and really loud music! The only downside was the trip was a bit shorter than the 30 minutes we were expecting. Kids (or big kids!) would really enjoy this, highly recommended.

Chose to do this as a thrill ride with kids 13 & 10. Absolutely loved it ! As soon as you are into the bay you are going fast, doing donuts and generally being thrown about. Didnt get that wet, just a bit of spray now and then. Staff are a good laugh and felt completely safe throughout. 30 mins goes very quick. You get some discount on a second ride.
