Great way to get to SF without dealing with traffic. We left from Vallejo and don't realize there was a SF Giants game, so we didn't make the first ferry. Something to check prior to going. Since we were one of the first in line for the next ferry, we got seats at a table. Worked out really well with... More

The ferry service to SF from Vallejo is a great way to get to the city, especially on a nice, sunny day. It takes about an hour and the trip is very smooth. Stop at the Ferry Building or Pier 41 right at Fisherman's Wharf. We used it to get to our cruise ship. Also for leisure as well since... More

Slightly pricey, $26 RT for a day pass, but totally worth it. They have a special ferry for going to the Giants game, which drops you right at the park. Nice way to travel in and visit the ferry building (market day is Saturday) or pier 39/41.

There is a reason this is the number one attraction in Vallejo over Six Flags. The ferry service to San Francisco was very efficient except we went on the day that the Giants were playing the A's. So the ferry terminal was super crowded. We missed the first ferry because it was sold out. We had to wait an hour... More

Given the craziness of transportation in San Francisco, taking this ferry rather than driving into town was a true blessing! There is a parking garage across the street that is only $5 for the entire day. The ferry is punctual, clean and provides a very relaxing ride. We will definitely take the ferry again rather than driving - with the... More

Nice relaxing way to go into San Francisco. Nice view of bridges and the ocean. Liked that it left right on time. We were both inside and on the deck. Deck was a little crowded.

A great way to get from San Fran to Napa or Sonoma. You may get a few strange looks while travelling with all of your luggage since this is daily transportation for most of the ferry goers, but so what. It's a great way to see the city from the water. Would do it again, for sure. Arrange for Enterprise... More

I had grown up in the Bay Area and had visited SF many times back then, but this was my first time using the Ferry system. We liked what we experienced. It was easy to use, easy to find a seat, easy to get around the city once you arrive at the Ferry building, and pleasant trip. They have a... More
