What a beautiful little island! The main cove faces away from the traffic of SF bay, so the waters are calm and quiet. The vegetation is lush and full of blooming flowers. I did the Segway tour with my mom, who is the world's number 1 technophobe. Our guide Frida was super personable and was even able to help my mom learn and enjoy the ride. There is lots of neat history here that you may not have heard about anywhere else, such as the Civil War encampment or the Cold War missile silos. I only wish the ferry's ran a little more often, although I do understand this is considered the off season. It was definitely worth the wait to be here either way.
