We fid the bay boat ride as part of our fays pass activities. Takes you to the bridge and to passing Alcatraz on the way back. You will be able to see much but not the Harbour Bay Bridge closely.

This place is a tourist magnet, but still, a fun place to take a stroll especially if you want to see the resident sea lions.
