The view from the Bay is as fabulous as the view of the Bay. Public transportation is SF is easy, Not so much in Vallejo. Great alternative from driving in Bay Area traffic!

Ferry was on time and passengers had each one a comfortable seat. The device connectivity was great good and the table was big enough for passengers to share. The ride was great.

My buddy and I took a trip to a Giants game in SF. This is the only way to go. Sit back, relax and down a couple of Bloody Mary's.

If you're looking for a fun, stress free way to travel to San Francisco from the East Bay area, try the Ferry out of Vallejo. It's a great way to get to the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero ,or go to Pier 39 for a day trip. The view form the ferry is the best. It passes under the Richmond-San... More

There is no better way to get to SF Ferry Building than via the ferry. Fresh air, positive ions, wind, water, birds, sea creatures, freedom from the road ragers.

We use the Ferry whenever we visit San Francisco. The terminal is easy to find with convenient, inexpensive, covered parking, the terminal building in Vallejo has clean restrooms, quick customer service for ticket purchases, lots of information regarding attractions in the City. There's also a little food service area. The ferry is a fun way to travel and drops off... More

Very convenient and courteous crew. Very easy to access and purchase tickets. Departs and arrives quite frequently and is the easiest way to go to San Francisco from Vallejo. Takes you to the pier where all the sights are located.

We have been taking the ferry for 5 years. Service and professionalism ranges on any given day. Mornings are extremely busy with commuters and there are some "regulars" who play poker who are incredibly rude, reserving seats and not hesitating to tell women and seniors to go away. The staff does nothing to deter this rude and bully-like behavior. If... More

Someone recommended I give this a try, and boy was I pleased. Parking is easy and cheap, $5 for the day. A little confusing on how to pay for parking. Make sure to read the directions on the kiosk. Boarding the ferry with my bicycle, I found a convenient rack located on the rear deck. The ride took about an... More
