The ride was packed. We got a seat in the middle section and thought that was good, until everyone around us stood up and we couldn't see much. My advice is to go to the top of the boat and sit in the front or stand at the raling, if that's full...continued

Audio was provided by a pa system. The boat had a loud group on the inside levels which made it really difficult to hear. The need a quiet deck so you canhear the audio.

My husband and I went out and even though we are lifelong Bay area residents who now live near Sacramento, we enjoyed it. One hour is perfect timing. The narration was great-wish we could have heard it better from every point on the boat but the...continued

This one hour bay cruise travels underneath the Golden Gate bridge, then does a full circle around Alcatraz. If you can hear it, there is an educational guide piped through various speakers throughout the entire cruise. I would suggest sitting...continued

I brought my mom on this cruise. We sat in the front right on the top level and we had great seats throughout the cruise. Lots of opportunities for pictures. Don't forget to dress warm and buy a hot chocolate ($3) from the snack bar. The warm...continued

Nice to be out on the Bay! One hour tour past the city, under the GG bridge, around Alcatraz, then back to Pier 39. There is a recorded narration with historical facts and trivia that’s very interesting and enhances the experience. Snack bar with...continued

The cruise was great. This being San Francisco the chill from the bay was expected but the views of the Golden Gate and the lazy circle around Alcatraz Island made a great backdrop for photos. I would recommend being in line early for access to...continued

A very pretty view of the Golden Gate Bridge, even in the fog (be warned that you may not be able to see anything, period). Very cheesy narration throughout, but what do you expect on such a tourist trap? Overall, a worthwhile view of the Bay...continued

Getaway from landlubbers for a salty hour of watery roller coaster -- our cruise was wavier than average -- see the GGBridge's underside and circle Alcatraz upclose. Small intimate ship, friendly crew. Fabulous.

I had out of town visitors ranging in age from 11 to 91 and this seemed like a great way to spend some time together. The cruise was enjoyed by all who went. We got to see the bay, learn a little history, and spend time together. I will...continued

It was really nice, got to find out facts I didn't know before. The recording was played a little low and the food and drinks were overpriced, but it was a great deal and a fun hour! Incredible views and a nice way to relax on vacation! If it gets...continued

Love the cruise! Our departure was at 430, but we didn't get in line until 425. It was suggested that we line up 15 mins before departure because people lined up pretty fast. Before you get in the boat, they take your picture and you can view and...continued

My 9 year-old nephew and I went on the cruise together as we had done the Red & White one last year. We both thought it was the perfect amount of time but while I thought the tour part was nice my nephew just wasn't tuned in to the tour compared...continued

Nice cruise around the San Francisco Bay, passing directly under the Golden Gate Bridge before turning around and returning to the dock on the northside of Alcatraz Island. On the upper most deck, the narration was difficult to hear unless you...continued
