Events at this venue were rated 4.6 by 372 members.

Rocketboat is 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. It’s never the same ride twice. If you want to get wet, sit toward the back. The front and middle seats tend to stay drier. Check with ticket booth on day of sailing for schedule. All prices include narration. No reserved seating available.
