Departing from Pier 39, the 90-minute Escape from the Rock cruise ferries passengers beneath the Golden Gate Bridge and out into the calm bay waters for an up-close look at one of San Francisco’s most storied locales, Alcatraz Island. As the ship encircles the famous prison twice, passengers listen to thrilling, sound-effects-laden narration that recounts the stories of criminals such as Al Capone, Billy Cook, and Clyde Johnson, an inmate who notoriously attempted to escape the island fortress.

The handicap-accessible boat has both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an onboard snack bar. For more information, see the San Francisco Bay Cruise Adventure's weekday and weekend departure times on the schedule or see the FAQs.

Blue & Gold Fleet

While speedboats are as fast as their name suggests, no vessel on San Francisco Bay is faster than the RocketBoat. It flies across the Bay's waves to the high-energy guitar riffs of a rock-‘n'-roll soundtrack. The RocketBoat is just one of Blue & Gold Fleet's 17 vessels, all manned by expert captains and crews that ferry about 2.5 million passengers annually. On their sightseeing cruises, passengers drink in panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and PIER 39, where sunning sea lions occasionally can be seen rubbing sunscreen on each other's backs. Meanwhile, Blue & Gold's ferries carry patrons to Sausalito, Tiburon, and other waterfront locales—including AT&T Park during baseball season—whereas their motorcoach tours chauffeur landlubbers to Northern California landmarks. All their services adhere to award-winning sustainability practices, which safeguard local ecosystems more effectively than arming every tree with pepper spray.
