San Francisco RocketBoat: Deals & Description
Here’s a fast and furious way to enjoy the San Francisco Bay — take a rip-roaring RocketBoat ride. This one’s on our short list for the next sunny day in SF. Whether you’re visiting San Francisco or live here in the Bay Area, this could be just the thing if you’re looking for a fun time out with family or friends.
The way to save on SF RocketBoat tickets is with a special promo from one of the biggest discount ticket companies (see deal details below). You don’t need to know the date you’re going to get tickets now online.
What To Expect
If you like speed and have 30 minutes in SF, you might enjoy this quick speedboat ride on the 70-foot long RocketBoat propelled by the boat’s 2800-horsepower engines. The folks at RocketBoat claim it’s the fastest watercraft on San Francisco Bay, covering speeds of up to 55 mph. The captain will narrate the sites as you go.
What You’ll See
You’ll speed past the The Embarcadero, AT&T Park, Treasure Island, Alcatraz, the SF sea lions, and you’ll zip along under the Bay Bridge, all to a soundtrack of rock tunes. The boat will stop at the hot spots for photo opps.
SAVVY TIP: You’ll stay a bit drier if you sit in the middle or the front of the vessel. Also, they’ll provide ponchos if you ask. Wet or dry, this ride is fast and fun.
San Francisco RocketBoat Tickets Discounts & Coupons
Here are the best ways to get tickets. Getting tickets online in advance also saves you time because you can skip the first line (box office) and go straight to the gate. Also, the discounts, when available, will save you a bunch.
You can also build your own discount pass with a Go San Francisco Pass that gets you at 15% to 55% off on just 2 (or more) SF activities that you select from a list of 55 or more. I love the “you build it” option, which is popular even with locals. You have 30 days to see only what you want, starting from the first time you use it. You can print or show on your smart phone. Who doesn’t want to see two killer SF attractions in a month (or maybe more)?
