This was truly an unexpected and exciting trip during a quick trip to the Bay Area for a football game watch. My son and I found the sightseeing tour while strolling Fisherman's Wharf, and were greeted warmly by the tour's sales agent and the boat's captain. And what a fun, exciting ride and tour it was. The fog departed the bay just for us, and we rode the fast pontoon type boat (the same type used by the US coast guard for rescues) out to the Golden Gate Bridge and a short ways out into the open ocean. On the way back we toured the caves, caverns and former Nike gun bays, went back to the bridge and under it, all while hearing the history anecdotes of each site from our knowledgeable and highly experienced captain, and nothing you read in the common brochures and even history books about the San Francisco bay. We then headed down along the SF waterfront to the base of the Bay Bridge, hearing more about the history of each site we saw. The ride was fun and exhilarating, history lesson unmatched, and a 90 minute adventure with my son that is not to be missed by any SF visitor with 90 minutes to spare.
