Very good! Left on time & returned on time. Good sights along the cruise. Only negative was people running from one side of the boat to the other to take pictures & to block the view of those seated. Would be advisable to have a photographic...continued

We bought out tickets in advance and only learned at redemption that you DO NOT go on the island. We were very disapointed to learn this, as it was our expectation. Do not be decieved by their verbage! Not worth the money-a total bore.

We were totally mis lead in believing we had a tour of Alcatraz. When we arrived, we were told that this tour "only circles Alcatraz and does not stop." In reading the "fine print" this is correct, no where does it say we get off at Alcatraz. ...continued

Enjoyable... just the right length. It was a chilly, rainy day, but the boat was comfortable. The personnel were very accommodating.

For the advertised reason to take this cruise ESCAPE FROM THE ROCK, I would give 0 - 1 stars as the sound system is inadequate for telling the stories that we came on the tour to hear. We tried different levels of the boat, also inside and...continued

Good event. I couldn't really make out the history over the loud speaker, but overall it was a good trip. Bring your jacket because under the bridge its a bit chilly.

Great Trip to take visiting family members on! They are Handicap Accessible, and very accommodating for those in wheelchairs. Remember that it is always chilly out on the bay, and no matter if it's overcast or not you will get sunburned out on the...continued

Great trip! Everything worked out well. The only issue is the voice over narration could be hard to hear at times. Arrive early to get a good seat.

I did not realize this was a cruise only. I thought we were going to get off the boat at alcatraz.

It was a disappointment. It was basically a cruise around the bay and Alcatraz. The audio was INAUDIBLE from the lowest level where I was forced to sit for the entire cruise because there wasn't any available seating on the upper levels.

It...continued

It was a nice ride. I liked that you could see Alcatraz from close and take good pictures of the golden bridge, SF city and Alcatraz.

It was impossible to hear the narration from inside on the 2nd deck. It was only when I was outside near the bow that I could hear. Otherwise the cruise itself was quite pleasant & the ship was clean.

It was nice to be on the boat in the bay but the main reason I went was to hear about the history and I could not hear anything, the speakers were too low and the crew inside was speaking too loud.

My family was waiting in line to board & I managed to loose my ticket. I ran to the ticket booth to purchase another. The woman was so kind & understanding, she just gave me another ticket for no charge. The funny part is that as the boat backed...continued
