Hop on board and cruise around San Francisco Bay. For about an hour and a half you can enjoy the beautiful views that the city of San Francisco has to offer. Thanks to an audio guide, you'll have the opportunity to learn about the history and architecture of some of the city's most iconic buildings.

The boat has restrooms, as well as indoor and outdoor seating, so you can enjoy the activity in the most comfortable way. You can also bring your own food and make purchases at the bar on board . Along the way, you'll enjoy views of the rich marine life off the coast of San Francisco, which is home to sea turtles and sea lions, dolphins, sea lions and many other species.

You'll see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, built during the 1930s as part of a construction plan to combat unemployment at the time. You'll pass the famous Alcatraz Island, which for more than 30 years housed the highest security federal prison in the United States. Out of operation for almost 50 years, the island remains one of the main tourist attractions in all of San Francisco.

You will see the artificial Treasure Island, named after the novel of the same name by British author Robert L. Stevenson. This is because the author of Treasure Island lived in the city between 1879 and 1880. The art deco Coit Tower and the Palace of Fine Arts are other of the city's most acclaimed artistic constructions.

Next to the Ferry Building, you'll see this famous restored 19th century space, which houses markets filled with produce, cheeses, sweets and some of San Francisco's best local food. You'll also have the chance to see the city's impressive skyline, with skyscrapers such as the Transamerica Pyramid and Salesforce Tower .

    It was a new experience for me, I had never been on a ride like this before so I was a little insecure. Although I had a little dizziness at the beginning, I enjoyed the rest of the ride with my partner. I highly recommend it.
