How was your experience?
These boats always seem a little sticky to me, meaning handrails and walls, but it's okay. Bathroom is a little gross because it doesnt seem you can flush. Anyway, you're given actually what feels like a lot of time on the boat. It starts off jetting off at a quick speed to get out into the bay, and then it drifts around for a while until finally the boat comes closer to Alcatraz Island, where you can get a pretty good view! Plenty of time to get a glimpse. There's a speaker that broadcasts a recorded background history segment about the island, which I appreciated. Wasnt loud enough though.
