Take a hooded windbreaker! No matter how sunny and warm on land, the bay is always cooler air. The boat goes fast so be prepared for very high winds and the potential to get wet!

The best $12 I've spent on entertainment! Thrilling, not scary at all. A marvelous boat that can spin donuts and stop on a dime. This would be great at full price. Thanks, Goldstar. a San Francisco sailer.

The boat is fun. You go fast and you will get wet. Be mindful of the weather when you go. I wish the weather would have been a little warmer, but a good time was had by all!!!

The captain was uncomfortably demanding; I understand safety BUT addressing the passengers as if we were 1st graders who had misbehaved is unacceptable. It seemed many... continued

The ride itself was a lot of fun, and I felt it was a good value for the money. But the staff was extremely rude. Beware, you must exchange your confirmation code print out at the box office for a ticket, not at the entrance to rocket boat itself.

The ride was really fun, staff was professional, funny and friendly, I only wish that the ride lasted longer. The 30 minutes goes by far too quickly!

The Rocketboat was Awesome! So much fun, but fully expect to get VERY wet! We were drenched when we got off, but totally laughing. Where else can you get a beautiful view... continued

The Rocket Boat is a fun way to see the Bay quickly. That said, the tour was billed to last 30 minutes and ours only lasted 15 minutes because the crew was running late. That is unacceptable.

The turbine engine sounded amazing. But the acceleration was a little disappointing. It doesn't put you back in your seat as I was anticipating.
It was still fun, make... continued

The utube experience looked like a blast which is why we booked ourselves and four grandchildren. We all got in line early to get a back row seat because that's where you... continued

The weather was perfect which gave us awesome views of the SF skyline. The people running the Rocket Boat were great. I would reccommend this to tourists as well as Bay Area residents as a must do.

They were not kidding when they named it RocketBoat. Almost like an amusement park ride, nothing like any cruise I had been on before.

This is a fast and fun ride in the choppy waters of the Bay. They ask you to fasten your seat belt just like in a plane. Wear warm clothing - maybe even a waterproof coat. It gets cold, wet, and windy on the bay.

This was a great and unique experience. We actually went twice. I think it depends on the driver because the 2nd time we went out, we went faster, experienced more dips and got wet - unlike the first time. It's a must do when on the wharf
