Fast boat that was fun and exciting. Excellent choice on a sunny summer day. The boat does fast 360 turns, and wave riding over the wakes of other boats. It isn't a tour boat, as you certainly CAN'T take photos, as you really can't have your camera out. If you understand what you are in for, it is a great ride!

Wooowie, this was an awesome experience. Okay, 75 USD for 30 minutes isn't cheap, but the ride is fantastic, and believe it or not, despite the speed you still get to see a lot if San Francisco's beautiful skyline :-).
We had the ride in the late afternoon, around 1800, and could hop on immediately.
The captain and crew were totally friendly and really made the entire thing special. It was very obvious these guys enjoyed their job, and really wanted to give their guests a great time. Mission accomplished I would say :-).

This is probably one of the funnest activities you can do in San Francisco. The boat ride is about 30 minutes long which gives you a great view of the bay including going under the Bay Bridge, being able to see some baby sea lions, and you get to see AT&T Park where the SF Giants play. You do get a little wet but if you sit in the middle towards the aisle you hardly get wet. The boat ride is fast and music is great. This ride is the best when the weather is 70 degrees or hotter.

Excellent !!We enjoyed full 30 mints. be prepared to get wet .must have in your itinerary. easy to find this in Pier 39. just ask anyone where is Rocket Boat in Pier 39. I had printout of Goldstar coupon which they initially not accepted it and insisted on showing them email. I showed them email from Goldstar on my device and then they provided me tickets. The email should clearly mention number of tickets.

This was the best tour we took during our trip to SF this June.
Defiantly take this tour if you are thinking about it.
Also if you keep your ticket you can take any of their other tour for a discount. Or ride it again.
We had so much fun plus the view of San Francisco is excellent from the water.
