​San Francisco Bay Ferry

San Francisco Bay Ferry operates multiple commuter routes, linking San Francisco with Oakland, Alameda, and Vallejo, as well as peak-period services between Alameda and South San Francisco. Blue & Gold Fleet manages the ferries that are under the San Francisco Bay Ferry brand, and its operations are managed by the Water Emergency Transportation Authority.
Small Ferries
These are capable of carrying up to 300 passengers per vessel and mainly operate as tour boats.
Large Ferries
These mainly operate between San Francisco and Marin County, as well as on limited trips to Vallejo to augment services provided by the San Francisco Bay Ferry.
This special speedboat can cruise along San Francisco Bay up to 50 miles per hour (80kph), in which you will be seeing the sights along the City’s waterfront in hair-raising fashion. Although it operates only between late-April and late-October and runs for 30 minutes, it is a very popular option for tourists wanting to see the City in a unique way.
