This isn't your grandmother's boat cruise. RocketBoat is a narrated, high-speed, 30-minute thrill ride on San Francisco Bay. Roaring past the beautiful San Francisco skyline, RocketBoat screams down to Bay Bridge and near AT&T Park, where passengers will thrill to the high-speed twists and turns, propelled by the boat's 2800-horsepower engines. A classic rock 'n' roll soundtrack adds to the fun. If you want to get wet, sit toward the back. You'll stay a bit drier if you sit in the middle or the front of the vessel. Wet or dry, this ride is fast and fun. Learn More

Fantastic! A must do! Before we boarded we watched a fifteen minute very informative film about the history of the ship. Fortunately, we had the perfect day for sailing in the Estuary and Bay. The narrator pointed out all of the sights we passed. It was so entertaining to learn facts about places, that we knew, but had no idea of the history or fun stories, that were shared with us.
Since most of the passengers were "seniors", it was especially meaningful to be a little part of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's life. For the younger passengers, it was a very delightful informative cruise/
Please bring a jacket and wear flat, comfortable shoes.
There is a 15-minute video about the history of the ship that begins one hour prior to departure in the Visitor’s Center.
