  • 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 »
  • We went with a small group of friends and had a GREAT time - the ride was like an amusement park ride with the best city views in the world. Worth every penny.  more »
  • Sensations in the San Francisco Bay. The pilot is a turns. It passes under the bridge coming from Orlando and stay on this side of the Bay. Too bad that we go fast for a ride under the golden gate... But good. We laugh the music goes with the atmosphere. Great to do

  • Sooooo much fun!!!!! I personally wanted to go faster but hey, still the fastest boat I ever been on. I did get wet where my shirt was soaked so was cold with the wind blowing full blast on me. Quick fix , I took it off and worked on my tan 😁. Instant blow dry!
  • 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!

  • Most wet and fun family adventure EVER

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
