"Great way to see the sights!"

We had a beautiful day on the bay in early April this year. We took a tour on the boat to see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate bridge. The provided commentary was informative and fun. But the views were stunning. I loved getting to see underneath the bridge - the seagulls - the sailboats - and all of the windsurfers! They got very close to our boats and waved. Very cool!! I'd highly recommend going on a cruise. My only complaint is that the windows were coated in salt so our pictures left a lot to be desired. However, it's about the experience, not the pictures.

This was a great way to see a view of San Francisco Bay and learn a bit about the cities history. They have many trips during the day so it's easy to just pop by while your walking at the pier and talk a break from walking and see the Harbour. Loved being able to get a nice closeup of the bridge

Reasonably priced, just long enough to stay interesting, great views of everything in the Bay, fairly interesting commentary, they got booze. You get to go under the Golden Gate Bridge, so that's pretty dope. Recommended.

My boyfriend and I were at Pier 39 and saw the booth selling tickets and decided to try it on a whim. I'm glad we did. We got to see the GG Bridge from a different angle than driving over it. We also got to cruise around Alcatraz. We positioned ourselves at the bow of the ship to get the best views and pictures, but be forewarned, we hit some waves and got a good amount of spray!

We did the 60min harbour cruise to the Golden Gate Bridge around Alcatraz and then back to port we though it would be a nice idea as it was a full tour and not just a boat trip. Sadly once on board all the staff seemed disinterested and the tour was a prerecorded dull voice that you could hardly hear most of the time just due there being people on board which is obvious. The trip seemed very expensive for not a lot 32USD per adult seems a lot for what we got
