What is there to do?

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  No, it's ROCKETBOAT!

You get to experience the blast off of a rocket, but on the water - we see what they did with the name!

Sit back, throw your hands in the air and enjoy the spray of San Francisco Bay across your face as you ZOOOOOOOM across the water in this high-speed rocket boat adventure.

For those of you over 40" tall, you can rock out with a super fun rock'n'roll soundtrack as you enjoy 30 minutes of water fun! Twist, and turn your way across the water - don't forget to hold on!  You'll be in for a thrilling and bumpy ride!

Slight warning though - you will most likely get wet!  That of course, is half the fun!  If you agree, we strongly urge you to sit right at the back of the can guess why!

No reserved seating, so just turn up and grab those special seats for the more adventurous.

Whoosh!  Can you feel your stomach jump as you crash your way over the waves?  The craft is very fast and nimble, so expect sharp turns and bumps.

When you are not recovering from the latest burst of energy, you can listen to the narration which is included as part of the tour, as you take in beautiful San Francisco from a completely new perspective.

RocketBoat will never give you the same ride you can keep blasting off again, and again, and again!

Additional Information

If you want to choose your seat, try get there 30-45 minutes ahead of time. Don't forget - the front ones have a better chance of staying dry!

Any top tips?


The boats don't have restrooms, so make sure you visit the one just inside Pier 39 before you get on board!

I'm Hungry!


You can certainly bring your own food and drink if they can be kept in a backpack or purse. You can't actually eat during the experience.
