AAA Editor Notes

RocketBoat departs from Pier 39 at Fisherman's Wharf. This high-speed, twisting and turning, 30-minute sightseeing tour offers amazing views of the bay, bridges, the San Francisco skyline and Alcatraz Island. The boat captain provides entertaining narration in between a soundtrack of classic rock tunes. There's also a very good possibility you'll get wet; if you actually do want to get splashed, sit toward the back. Riders should be in good health and free from high blood pressure; heart, back or neck problems; osteoporosis; motion sickness; or other similar conditions. Expectant mothers should not participate. Guided tours are available.
