This was a great experience. We enjoyed a smooth cruise to San Francisco and loved the convenience and experience. There are snacks and cocktails available if you choose. It was a bit pricey but worth avoiding the traffic and had great views.

Our trip on the ferry took us to the Marina entrance to AT&T Park. We got there just before the game started, even though the ferry was running late. Truly enjoyable.

Recommended to use the ferry to go to Sausalito both cheap and quick and so easy to get tickets this gives a good view of both Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge and great views of both leaving San Francisco and of Sausalito

I never had a problem. Check to see if the ferry you are taking is running. We drove in for a 10: am ferry and mechanical problems had canceled that one trip.
