RocketBoat, San Francisco

Board RocketBoat and spend half an hour riding in the open sea. You'll be flashing through the water, en route to Alcatraz and back. Along the way, you'll see the infamous island and pass under many bridges. Prepare to get soaked: wear long sleeves, and grab one of the ponchos the staff offers at the entrance. Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the thrilling adventure and adrenaline rush.

  • An original and funny way to discover the east part of the bay (the boat doesn't go neither to Alcatraz nor the Bridge)! Be careful of the splash :-) you can't be nauseous I think as the boat always g...  more »

  • There was 5 of us and it was our first time, we got a " family" rate of $109. We were welcomed on the boat. We were nervous. It was a ride of a lifetime! Totally recommend it. The ride was thrilling and so fun! Good thing the weather was nice there was many twists and turns ... Water was flying everywhere. Some of us got off the Rocket Boat drenched! Everyone should try it. Well worth the money. We are already planning our next Rocket Boat Adventure!
  • So much fun. It's very worth doing! If you want to get wettest sit toward the back. The front is usually up higher and drier as it rarely gets level on a plane. You go under the bay bridge and stop by the islands where the staff is willing to take pictures of your group. There is also a lighthouse in view on the island. Then you head back to pier 39.
  • for you thrill seekers this thing is definitely worth it. this thing has twin 1,410HP 16VM70 marine diesels and sounds AMAZING when it goes full throttle.
  • Experiencing San Francisco Bay in this was way better than one of those over packed and slow tour boats. Loved it!
  • "Great" customer service when you find out that they sold you a ticket and they don't have room for you in the boat and you have to wait until next tour departure. But the actual ride was fun.
