Excellent trip. Loved the boat ride and the tour. Make sure you download the App before you get there for the audio tour and remember to bring a headset. Only downside was the return boat schedule is "flexible" - meaning it waited another 20 minutes past the scheduled time to capture some stragglers (but not all of them) who didn't know or didn't prepare for the leaving time.

Exactly what I expected. We were late getting to our schedule time and was graciously accommodated at a new time slot.

Great narrative and explanation of sights. A unique view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the bay.

Lovely ride in the bay. Enjoyed the history and taking pictures! Highly recommend!!

I loved it & so did my kids & staff members were all friendly!
