RocketBoat Ultimate High-Speed Thrill Ride on San Francisco Bay

  • No booking or credit card fees

Climb aboard RocketBoat for the ultimate high-speed rocket boat adventure on San Francisco Bay. Calling All Thrill Seekers!


Get blown away as you hold on for the most exhilarating ride of your life. Stunning views and a classic Rock'n'Roll soundtrack add to the 30-minutes of fun. Never the same ride twice. A rocket in a boat. RocketBoat, it's a BLAST!

Strap yourself into Rocketboat, the fastest and most nimble watercraft on San Francisco Bay. For 30 minutes, you'll be flying across the Bay under the steady hand of one of our able captains while jammin to a great rock and roll soundtrack.
