Awful experience and even worse customer service.
Booked a romantic dinner cruise for my wife's birthday or so I thought. Everything about our booking down to the departure time and dock said we would be on the boat we expected to be on. We learned in line that the people there were all from the same company and it was a company function on the boat. We we allowed to board the boat and started asking questions to then hurriedly get shuffled off to another boat leaving an hour later.
What was supposed to be a romantic dinner turned into a low budget, buffet, disco DJ night trapped on a boat we didn't want to be on for 3-hours.
For the record I contacted their customer service before writing this review giving them a chance to make it right and got the runaround so now they are getting the review they so deserve.
Do not trust this add or company with your experience and hard earned money.
Business have the right to book a private event, but they also have responsibility to inform their pre-booked guest!

This was a lot of fun for myself and wife of 25 years. Great DJ played great danceable music. Food was excellent. Bring a jacket for outside pics. Drinks are a bit pricey.

I think it terrible that this cruise is not accessible, when almost all of the other lines in the Bay are. You are singling out the disabled rather than making the adjustments needed to make the experience inclusive for all.

I booked this cruz. The flyers and website all show the older mor romantic boat in the second picture. Instead we are put on a boat that looks like the blue and gold fleet that runs you back and forth to Alcatraz. Hornblower is mor expensive then the blue and gold and if i knew what we were getting i would of just booked with them. I just thought it would be more romantic. One note the couple next to us asked if this is what we paid for, when i told them not in a long run they agreed and let the boat before it even left. Beware you most likely are not getting what is in the pictures. I’ll never trust them again!!!!!

I took my wife on the Friday night dinner cruise of San Francisco Bay. We were each greeted with a glass of champagne and graciously escorted to our table where a bottle of champagne awited us. We dined on food that was decent but not great as we looked out the glass surround windows and sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge , past Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge and the port of Oakland accompanied by a pianist playing romantic tunes. After dinner there was dancing to romantic music and a few rock songs blended in. My wife really loved the evening. I recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic, something different eveing in San Francisco.

We went on their dinner dance bay cruise with a group. Overall the experience was pleasant with a beautiful view of the bay. We went under the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge at night so the lights were really nice to see. Plus seeing the city at night is really spectacular.

The food was decent but not necessarily worth what we paid. But you have to consider that the bay cruise is what we are really paying for and the food is just an add-on. Drinks were a little on the pricey side and service was pleasant.

After dinner there was some dancing with a DJ providing music. But it was more spectacular to just go outside and take in the views.

A wonderful dinner cruise with attentive staff, great music and incredible views. The length of the cruise allowed for a leisurely dinner and strolls on deck to capture the amazing views.
