The schedule online is very misleading and confusing. It should be made into a chart type graph for better understanding. They basically write their schedule for residents and not tourists. We know because it makes assumptions we know what every destination is. We were in...More

We chose to use this form of transport to get from Sausalito across the bay and into San Francisco. the costs are reasonable and the journey delightful. It was far better than facing the drive into the city and the long traffic queues and the...More

When I purchased my City Pass a ticket for this fun cruise was in the packet. I so enjoyed this Bay Boat and where it took the passengers. All the times I've been in San Francisco I never went on the water.
