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.

  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Hell Ya!!! What an awesome ride. Despite the typical SF weather ur made this roller coaster ride a huge thrill 4 my son & I. Few suggestions, 1. turn up the music, could barely hear it over the roaring motors. 2. Can ur do less spinning/side 2 side & run us around Alcatraz instead? Recommend this to anyone who wants a quick thrill bay view of the city! Rocket on!
