The boat ride was great!!! But: (1) The loud music was unnecessary; I would rather have had just the sound of the water. (2) We had a dry ride and the captain intentionally took a quick turn near the end that intentionally got us all wet for...continued

Awesome adventure. We went on Wednesday at 12:15pm and there were only a few other people on our boat. They provide ponchos for free, but I only got wet from the mist a few times. The ride is about 30-35 minutes but you reach speeds of 50+ miles...continued

Loads of fun on the bay. Bring your rain coat, you will get splashed!

windy and depending on the boats direction, cold.
a windbreaker with a hood could help especially if the skeeper causes water to slash.

The Rocketboat people are top notch and they go out of their way to offer a great time! I've take my visiting guests on their boat rides many times. Best of all, when I had a last-minute appointment and had to leave the line last night, they told...continued

We had a great time. Bring a rain poncho it you don't want to get soaked. We used to think the regular bay cruises were fun, but they seem so boring now after the rocket boat ride. Lots of thrills and great views, too!

In the lexicon of my times, this was a "blast!" Great fun, good safety orientation. A must for locals as well as the relatives from Canton or Castro Valley.

Fun and exhilarating - this was our second time - we got more wet this time as the afternoon wind had raised waves.
Definitely something to do for adult and younger ones...

This might be the most fun I've ever had in San Francisco. If you like speed, and the idea of doing cookies and wheelies in a boat, this ride will be for you. I can't wait to go back!

Great ride but don't let them fool you. Not a dry spot on the boat! It was a really nice day so drying off wasn't an issue. I really recommend it. Lots of fun.

Lots of fun; however, I never would have paid the full price - glad that I have Goldstar!

What can I say!? A quick and cheap thrill out on the bay. Lot's of fun (as long as you aren't prone to sea sickness)

I went with my 11 year old son. We live in SF so played tourist for the day - everyone else on the boat was from out of town. We collected out tickets and went straight on to the boat - no waiting. It was fast and fun. Well worth it. We would do...continued

Too fun. Thought my 80 year old mother might be a bit overwhelmed. SHE LOVED IT ! A jolting ride for sure but really fun.

Although the experience was a blast I did not appreciate the fact WILL-CALL is not accepted at pier 39 booth. I had to pay $5 extra just to use a computer they have upstairs at Pier 39, plus $1 to get the print out of my purchase. HAVE THE...continued

Super fun way to be a "tourist in our own city"!
Kids loved it and want to go again with friends. It's a short and sweet little adventure in the beautiful SF Bay!
80's rock music a nice touch.
