    We experienced the most beautiful sunset in San Francisco Via this beautiful boat. The staff were funny, friendly, down to earth and knowledgeable of the area’s rich history. The temperature was cold of course, but the boat came equipped with plenty of warm jackets which we took advantage of. We enjoyed drinks from the bar. We sailed around the majestic Golden Gate Bridge and by Alcatraz island. We felt safe in this boat with this competent crew. We started and ended where the sea lions lay on the pier, that was fun!! Hubby and I are Sunset hunters and this definitely goes down in the memory banks in the top 10 most beautiful.

    This was my favorite thing I did during my San Fran trip! Beautiful views. They also provide XL jackets if you get cold (I went on Halloween). Only thing was i thought we were going to drive around Alcatraz and Sausalito and we did not but that’s fine. They also had a great open bar and great light snacks (cheese/chips/dips/etc). ALSO the directions on how to find the boat are bad. Basically just go to where the sea lions are on Pier 39 and that’s where the boat is. The directions of “don’t go down the center” is not clear and if you ask somewhere where “gate j” is no one knows. I was scared I’d miss the boat because i couldn’t find it.

    Great way to cruise the bay!

    This is a great way to see the bay by water. We loved the experience and would recommend it to friends and family. The captain made sure everyone was comfortable and did an excellent job getting to those difficult nooks and crannies around the GGB and Alcatraz. The only suggestion I would make is to reduce the number of passengers slightly- even if you charge a little more. It did seem a little crowded at times. But all in all we would give this venture a thumbs up!
