It was really a great informative fun cruise. The weather was cool in the mid of October ( there is a lot of space indoor if you prefer so). The audio recording was great to learn about the landmarks that we passed by that aimed the passengers to the left or to the right as needed to follow the sights with the audio. Staff are very friendly, helpful and patient.

"Go for the Sunset Cruise on weekends!"

Bought ticket for the sunset cruise for Saturday - Really gorgeous and we got to see Golden Gate Bridge in the sunset ("Golden" indeed!). The overall ride was very beautiful and comfortable, and ticket price includes 1 alcoholic drink or 2 non-alcoholic drinks. Ride was smooth and we sailed past Alcatraz Island and Oakland Bay bridge too. Highly recommended!

When I purchased my City Pass a ticket for this fun cruise was in the packet. I so enjoyed this Bay Boat and where it took the passengers. All the times I've been in San Francisco I never went on the water.
