The later in the day (especially the last two departure times are much less crowded, but the also won't let you sit in the first few rows due to weight distribution. Also sit toward the center aisle if you don't want to get wet. :)

Description

Strap yourself into Rocketboat, the fastest and most nimble watercraft on San Francisco Bay. For 30 minutes, you’ll be flying across the Bay under the steady hand of one of our able captains while jammin’ to a great rock and roll soundtrack. Rocketboat runs seasonally May through October from PIER 39. Cruises may not operate during inclement weather. Never the same ride twice.
