We loved the tour! We went from the pier to the Golden Gate Bridge. We got very close to the Golden Gate Bridge and we were able to get some great photos of the city as the book turned around and headed back. We also got first row seats to Alcatraz Islands and were able to take up and close photos. We'd highly recommend this intimate boat tour if you're looking for a smaller setting to tour the bay and would enjoy some wine while you're at it. Note, it did get a bit windy and the waters got a bit choppy at the start but after that it was smooth sailing the rest of the way back.

My friends & I really enjoyed this experience. However, I must say...if you get even slightly sea sick...this is not for you! The boat is on the smaller size, which my friends and I enjoyed more because it felt more intimate. There was an indoor portion with a tiny bar where you could get wined up and an outdoor portion that wrapped around so you could admire the views. The boat was a bumpy ride, but personally we loved that part. It made the experience more fun for us. Also, the views were AMAZING. You could see the pier, Alcatraz, the city buildings, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The wine was NOT included in the tickets (except for the sunset option), but we didn't mind paying. People there were nice, and one of the guys there was eager to talk and share his knowledge about the sites. My group had a good time and would recommend this experience for those who like the ocean, boats, and an up close view of the bridge. Just be warned: might be good to bring a jacket...even if it's summer!

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. But I must warn you… if you get seasick, this is NOT the choice for you. The boat is on the smaller side, which creates an intimate feel. But it also gets pretty bumpy from the waves. Personally, I enjoyed that aspect and made it more fun for me and my friends. The views of the city, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge are beautiful. The crew that worked there were really nice and they had a decent amount of wine to choose from. However, the wine is NOT included in the ticket price, unless you get the sunset option. However, the sunset option is more expensive to accommodate for that. But either way, I thought this was still an enjoyable and unique way to see the city.
