What people are saying about San Francisco

Great boat tour; Poor ticket collection process

Once we actually got onto the boat all was good. The tour was as stated and it went around Alcatraz twice to give a good history lesson. Getting to that point wasn't very clear. The paper receipt is not your ticket. Where to exchange your receipt for a ticket is not clearly stated. It shows where to get the boat but not the ticket window to go to. The line was so long because there isn't a will call window for advanced purchased tickets its all one in the same. Once we got to the window they were not able to issue us tickets for the assigned time which was very frustrating and not convenient. This defeats the purpose of advanced purchased tickets - no time saved and very little money savings as I came to learn. I will definitely think twice before booking again. At a minimum make sure I don't have to exchange receipt for ticket.

Awesome! A must do on your vacation! Wheelchair accessible!

It was super fun and we learned a lot from the audio narration around the bay. It is everything you want to see starting at pier 40 1/2 but right next to pier 39 (shopping and food) to the coast around the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. For a great activity worth the admission for a great hour cruise. It’s a must do family activity! I’m also in a wheelchair so it is very safe and accessible!

For the Alcatraz portion I thought tickets were digital

When we showed up we had to go to 3 different lines before we were able to get in the “official “ line. For the Alcatraz portion if you’re emailing a voucher why doesn’t that work as your ticket and why aren’t you told you’ll need to check in and pick up tickets? No one would give us proper information.

A great adventure in the San Francisco Bay with Captain Charlie !

This was a great way to spend 1.5 hours seeing and feeling the beauty of San Francisco Bay. Captain Charlie is a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed the time on the water while he showed us the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, and historic and beautiful spots in between.

Pleasurable Bay, bridge and Alcatraz tour

We had a blast. Extremely informative, comfortable and just long enough to keep my collage age companion “un-bored.” Tickets sold-out for island, but I’d visited Alcatraz before. I learned more, and didn’t have to climb the prison’s ramparts, on the cruise. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
