The ferry is the way to go if you want the scenic route versus the traffic. Catch it in Vallejo and ride it to the "city" with the kids, they will love it.

This ferry is always on time, friendly service and fantastic ride. The scenery can't be beat. To the East just North of the Richmond San Rafael Bridge there is an old lighthouse which is now a Bed and Breakfast run by the National Park Service. Don't forget to look West to spy the Golden Gate between Tiburon and Angel Island.

Take a smooth, fast and safe ride to San Francisco - and arrive on time - on the Vallejo/SF Ferry. It takes about the same time as driving - but with none of the hassle.

I want to start this review off with nothing but accolades for the wonderful service and hard work of the crew of the ferry. I have taken this ferry to San Francisco for years and have enjoyed my time on the ferry each and every time. Unfortunately, this past Tuesday when I was with friends that positive experience quickly soured.... More

I use the bay area ferry every week going to work. It's such a peaceful way to travel to San Francisco. You can save a lot of money if you get a clipper card. The ferry is pricey if you compare the price with Bart or Bus, however, it's more enjoyable and relaxing.

I've been taking the San Francisc bay ferry from Vallejo to SF for 3 years. Great way to commute, great crew always friendly, the ride is comfortable! Coffee in the morning & cocktail on the way home. The crew greats you by name & just make you feel special. I can't say enough GREAT THINGS.

The ferry between Vallejo and San Francisco is a very comfortable way to travel without the stress of all the traffic. There is a snack bar, comfortable seating and it's not particularly crowded except for the height of rush hour.
