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.

It was wonderful to see the Bay up close, and the crew is knowledgeable about wine and friendly. We saw porpoises, Alcatraz up close, and both the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. I would recommend to anyone looking to have a relaxing experience on the water.

Such a great way to experience San Francisco bay! Beautiful views of the city and golden gate bridge. We were surprised at how close we got to Alcatraz! We even got to see a bunch of porpoises in the water. Enjoyed the casual setting and wine selection!

Had such a blast! Loved the nice selection of local wines and casual atmosphere. Great way to experience the San Francisco Bay!

Even with chilly weather, the trip was still a delight, and the crew made it fun (especially the bartender!)
