The excursion was fun and educational, but we were disappointed as we thought you got to get off of the boat and explore the Rock.

The tour was from Pier 39 out to the Golden Gate and around Alcatraz Island. It was a windy day but the ferry ride was not bumpy. I give this tour 4 stars instead of 5... continued

The ride was pleasant, the weather and bay beautiful, and the narrative informative. Bring a hat to shade from the sun, and layered clothing in case it gets cold.

Absolutely delightful! Wonderful boat, beautiful day, and good narrative about history of Bay and environs. Nice people to talk to, and safe and peaceful tour.

These boats always seem a little sticky to me, meaning handrails and walls, but it's okay. Bathroom is a little gross because it doesnt seem you can flush. Anyway, you're... continued

I kind of felt like this was the SAME thing as the Bay Adventure Cruise. Except you get to go around Alcatraz once more. The narration was all the same, they just gave a... continued

The boat ride was good. The sun cooperated and came out on the way back from Alcatraz. The recorded story/history was silly and amateurish. The music in between the... continued

It's alright. Kind of too noisy to hear the narration. It's good to just get out on the water and float around for 90 minutes tho.

Usual SF weather, but it was perfect. If you don't get to sit inside, make sure to seat on the right side of the boat (looking at it from the back).

Waste of money! DO NOT BUY THIS!!! There is no entrance to Alcatraz. This event just drives in the water never getting to Alcatraz. It's a scam!!! You just pay to be in a... continued

I loved being on the water and seeing San Francisco from that perspective. We were able to see the Americas cup catamarans in the water. It was lovely!

Went on a perfect weathered Saturday, however we did not enjoy the "cruise". Ship was way too crowded and you cannot hear the mic half the time due to noise level. (All... continued

Fantastic cruise! Was well worth the price we got from Goldstar; at the site the price is $29.00 a person. The boat goes under the Golden Gate Bridge and back, then... continued
