The "tour" is a recording, and it's so quiet you can't hear over the din of crowd. So, the "excursion" was really just a ferry ride. Also, the boat is really not the nice or well-kept. The ferries going back from Sausalito and other places and...continued

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 had to spend the entire ride just trying to swat them away. I won't be...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.

The women in will-call were really rude & the trip was a little boring but it was very relaxing.

This is a poorly named event...it is a Bay cruise and merely swings around Alcatraz, it doesn't land there. The onboard audio narration is good, but is on public speakers (not personal radios like other cruise lines) so it's hard to hear and/or...continued

Very enjoyable and highly recommended! The tour is a bit long for the young folks (12,15), but they also enjoyed it. There is an audio portion throughout the tour which is very informative. The cruise ship has indoor seating, and 2 levels of...continued

We did not use the tickets, because we thought we were going to tour Alcatraz. Disappointed!
