This tour is a nice, simple tour of the San Francisco Bay. You move up the SF Bay shorline from Pier 39 toward the Golden Gate Bridge. All along the way there is audio that describes the SF skyline and provides historical facts about the city. Then a fair amount of time is devouted to the the bridge as you approach, move underneath the awesome structure, and turn back around. Then you pass by Angel Island and learn about some of its history. Then, of course, you cruise by Alcatraz and actually stop in the water for about 5 minutes while the audio describes certain things about the island. The audio on this tour actually talked more about the Native American occupation of the island from 1969 to 1971 than the Alcatraz tour does.
