Listen Technologies Wi-Fi Audio Tour System Used for Blue & Gold Fleet Audio Tours

BLUFFDALE, UT, June 8, 2015 — Blue & Gold Fleet, a subsidiary of PIER 39, is the premier provider of ferry and water excursions on San Francisco Bay. The boat tours spotlight the region’s many notable structures and historic sites visible from the water, including Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
