"Fast trip under the Golden Gate"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

Good fast trip, no time wasted on this cruise. 1 hour start to finish,, past Alcatraz to the bridge and back to the north side of Alcatraz. The PA system needs some help. The drinks on the boat are expensive.

"More than just Alcatraz "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 13, 2017 NEW
We did the tour called Escape from the Rock. I thought we would only learn about Alcatraz but I was wrong. The tour goes under the Golden Gate Bridge and you have spectacular views. The tour includes a lot of history, not only about the bridge but also about the city. We then moved closer to Alcatraz and circled it twice. Great views and great stories! Make sure you bring a jacket! It is REALLY windy!

"I Fell Asleep"

Don't jump to conclusions. I didn't fall asleep because I was bored. I fell asleep because it was such a relaxing trip. I gave it only a score if 4 because I couldn't see very much because people were standing up and blocked my view. I would do it again. It's worth the cost.

Several options for cruises are available. We took the cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz. The boat ride was quite comfortable and was very informative.

"4 p.m. Bay Cruise - Wonderful!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 21, 2017
We took the 4 p.m. Bay cruise as we wanted to catch the bridge near sunset. Although the bay was quite choppy and it was very windy and cold, the large boat gave us a fairly smooth cruise. They provide a lot of information about the city and the islands and there is plenty of opportunity to get some great pictures. The cruise takes you right to the bridge and back. Plenty of indoor space if its cold out. Well worth the trip!
