Spectacular sail

Super smooth ride. Delicious complimentary appetizer buffet, perfect simple selections. Got lucky the fog had lifted so I got spectacular clear views. Suggest during the month of July you wear a jacket cause it’s breezy & especially as you get closer to the bridge, the winds get aggressive. I highly recommend this tour! Almost forgot about the guitarist, he was wonderful. The music was all throughout the vessel & it was fantastic!

Great Views

Customer Service reps were great, boarding easy, plenty of seating, good drinks, pretty good appetizer choice. Great views of the city and cool to have to close up view of the sites everyone goes to see in SF. The only thing we wished they had was more upbeat music. The artist was great but just really slow and relaxing music. Made two hours go by kinda slowly

Really great view, food and crew!

I did the tour with my boyfriend and even though the price may seem high first it’s really awsome! You get a look of SF from the seaside, cruise around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge. We had luck with the weather so the sunset was absolutely amazing! And great food (buffet) too. Totally recommend it.
