The RocketBoat idles quietly at PIER 39 as passengers board, stow their smaller belongings, and belt into the seats. Once everyone is secure, the sure-handed captain blasts off into San Francisco Bay on a high-speed 30-minute tour, following a different course on every outing. He plays a nonstop soundtrack of rock 'n' roll, the sounds of electric guitars wailing into the whipping wind. Waves and wake also fly around the nimble vessel, often soaking those seated toward the back. See the schedule for available tour times or the FAQs for questions about the ship's amenities.

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.
