Have your camera ready when you sail directly under the colossal 4,200-foot long, 746-foot tall Golden Gate Bridge.
Steam past Angel Island State Park and slowly circle the infamous Island of Alcatraz before returning to Fisherman's Wharf after an action-packed hour of exploring the City by the Bay.
It actually was a good cruise. You listen on headsets to a variety of interesting information. It was very informative. Sooo many things I didn't know and seeing the Golden Gate bridge from underneath and getting good pics of Alcatraz. It was a good excursion.
We booked for early on Monday morning. The ship was not full so we could sit where we wanted - upstairs in the open or downstairs where it was indoors. You get a little recorder with headphones that explains what you are seeing as you pass by. Just the right amount of time (about an hour). And we bought a great picture of ourselves when we got off the boat. All in all, a fun experience.
