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

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.

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.

The cruise itself is OK. Decent thing to do if you've never been out on the bay. Fumes from the boat were pretty strong. Seating wasn't enough for everyone on the boat.

The federal government shutdown began 10/1/13 and Alcatraz was closed. I didn't get any notice regarding this. I had to find out about it on my own. Still working out the details of refund.

The ride itself was quite nice and would have been worth the price, not for the terrible infestation of files. Yes an infestation of large files that were buzy and we... continued

The tour was awesome. We even had a fairly clear day to enjoy the ride even more. I highly recommend this to everyone. We circled Alcatraz and really saw it from all angles. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
