First time on ferry

The ferry was very relaxing and was a good price without the hassle of city traffic. Would take the ferry any day to travel to San Franscico Fisherman's Wharf

i have not taken the Ferry again recently but in the past i have enjoyed it, especially when the weather is nice enough to be out side underway. Nice to bring a back pack with some hot coffee or coco but there is a snack bar. We used to take bikes to Angel Island and and we took bikes to... More

Despite there being a Giants game today, the Ferry service was on time. I don't think it's cool that they sell too many tickets, leaving some passengers waiting hours for the next ferry on a Saturday morning, tho.

I have driven to San Francisco across the Bay Bridge perhaps a hundred times over the years but have always been bothered by the traffic and difficult parking. Especially in the last five years or so. When doing touristy stuff with family and friends I have usually been the one stressed out as I am the one doing the driving.... More

My son & I took the ferry to enjoy a day in San Francisco. The drive into the City has gotten so bad that it could take hours to get over the Bay Bridge, then there's parking to find (& afford)--such a hassle--so I saw the TA ferry reviews & thought we'd give it a try. It was amazing. The... More

This ferry trip was the kids first to SFO. The ferry was clean and accommodating with an on board concession bar; water, sodas, alcohol and snacks. Cash only. The seating was nice and spacious. Sure wish the airlines would take notice. No outside seating, little standing room. Wish there was more outdoor areas. I would ride this daily if I... More

Whether sightseeing with friends, dinner with your special someone, or taking in a Giants game, the ferry is the only way to go to the city! Very relaxing & smooth.

Particularly if you live in the Sacramento valley this is the best way to travel Pac Bell for a Giants game. It's inexpensive, relaxing and a retreat from hot, hot valley. I love this experience and it reminds every time of why I live in California. Having moved from the Midwest, I am so lucky to have this experience. It's... More
