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. :)

Half way in to the ride, they stop at McCovey Cove by AT&T Park for a "photo op" & I recommend that you wait until then to use your camera. The twists & turns during the ride are very unpredictable (part of the fun) so the risk of losing the camera is quite high.

The weather was windy...especially @ 45 MPH. I wore Ski Parka with zipper pockets. DO NOT wear a hat of any kind...it WILL blow off..

Lots of places to eat or snack on the wharf. No food on the boat.

Don't bring a car, you tourist you! Take public transportation or a cab. It's the Wharf, for heaven's sake!

The weather was sunny but you'll definitely feel the wind on this ride. Be prepared! . I wore a light jacket - even though the sun was warm because you will definitely get some salt water spray on this ride! I put the hat, sunglasses and earrings in a small bag that I kept safe so I didn't lose anything on this speedy ride. Sun screen instead of a hat is a good idea, or a light weight hooded jacket! .

From the East Bay take BART to the Embarcadero. Take the street trolley to Pier 39. Great way to see the city!

The weather was windy. I wore a hoodie and light pants. They will give you a poncho if you're worried about getting wet.

The weather was mid 60's. I wore jeans & jacket as a bit of a chill. Use a pony tail if long hair. Get in line 1/2 hr ahead as advised. Right near Pier 39. Hardly got wet @ front 6th row. .
