My friends & I really enjoyed this experience. However, I must say...if you get even slightly sea sick...this is not for you! The boat is on the smaller size, which my friends and I enjoyed more because it felt more intimate. There was an indoor portion with a tiny bar where you could get wined up and an outdoor portion that wrapped around so you could admire the views. The boat was a bumpy ride, but personally we loved that part. It made the experience more fun for us. Also, the views were AMAZING. You could see the pier, Alcatraz, the city buildings, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The wine was NOT included in the tickets (except for the sunset option), but we didn't mind paying. People there were nice, and one of the guys there was eager to talk and share his knowledge about the sites. My group had a good time and would recommend this experience for those who like the ocean, boats, and an up close view of the bridge. Just be warned: might be good to bring a jacket...even if it's summer!
Awesome tour! Going across the GG bridge was exhilarating. 3 steep hills to climb on way to the bridge. Not a trip for beginners or out of shape people unless you want to walk a lot. Great to be able to take ferry back and keep bike all day. Scott was our guide. Very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend doing this.
Great time! The crew was wonderful and they knew all the best view spots! Classic boat and wine choices were terrific! We will come back!
Our guide, Elijah was excellent. He kept everyone safe and informed. He was relaxed yet skilled and very approachable.
Great package of bike tour and Alcatraz. The whole family really enjoyed both days. Highly recommend.
