You catch it at the Ferry Building on the wharf. Be careful , the signage is horrible. Very nice views of San Francisco, Sausalito, Angel island and Alcatraz. Very smooth ride which takes about 30 minutes.

There are two companies which run ferries to and from SF to Sausalito. This one is from the Ferry building and works out cheapest if you get a Clipper card. Although the cash fares for both companies are the same, the Clipper fare for this...More

Bring a windbreaker, it’s breezy on the water. The ferry comes very close to Alcatraz Island, and the views of the Golden Gare Bridge are spectacular, especially on a sunny day.

Both companies dock at the same pier in Sausalito, it can get chaotic at peak times as it did whilst we were there with 5 bikes. The other company's staff were so rude, herding paying passengers like sheep. The problem is you queue from so...More
