Easy way to get to Alameda
Jul. 2021 • Family
We were in SF for a few days and wanted to see the USS Hornet. We decided to take the ferry. It worked out great. We purchased our tickets off the HOPTHRU app and caught the ferry at Gate 9 off Embarcardeo. Once we got to Alameda, we took Lyft to the ship. The ferry was clean and there were plenty of seats. I highly suggest using the ferry to cross the bay to other locations.

The Only Way to Sail
Apr. 2021 • Solo
My first trip back post Covid had me wanting to cross the water. I combined a ride on the Oakland Alameda ferry with a journey up to Berkeley and it was great. The ride was smooth, the weather was good. There were ample Covid prevention measures in place. Glad to see things getting back to normal.

This boat is fast... and with the Hopthru app only $2 round trip per person! We caught a beautiful day in November and had a wonderful boat ride! What fun, and inexpensive fun for SFO

Great Way to Go to SF

We love to take the ferry. You can get some free parking at the big garage near the port. The ride is fast and comfy and they have cocktails!

Easy Trip to/from San Francisco
Feb. 2020
Best way to travel back from San Francisco after work. Then, when stepping off in Oakland you can have dinner/drinks in Jack London Square. The ferry is clean and offers a wonderful bay ferry ride from San Francisco to Oakland. There is a concession area where you can purchase wine/beer.

Bay Ferry

At $7.20 each way, it sure beats using BART or driving to San Fran yourself, as parking is astronomical.

Great scenic ride
Jan. 2020
This is the best bargain in town. It is a beautiful ride with views of San Francisco and the bay area. You do not have to drive or park in the city and you land right down town.

Best way to visit San Francisco
Dec. 2019
If you stay in Oakland, this is the best way to visit San Francisco, you park your car (free) near the ferry port and take a ferry directly to the best tourist attractions in San Francisco. Cost only $7 one way

SF ferry
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We took the ferry from Jack London Square over time SF ferry building. I would highly recommend you take it over to pier 41 instead of the ferry building. There’s not much to do at the ferry building. There’s a Market Square you can walk through but other than that , not much. You will then end up walking over a mile to get to Pier 39 where all the action is. The ferry ride was beautiful and well worth the price.

Cool ride for cheap
Nov. 2019
The ferry to San Francisco is $7.20 for an adult without a pass, and $3.60 for seniors. The ferry was clean, fast, and staff was friendly. You pass right under the Bay Bridge. It is a fun way to get across the Bay, and it runs in time.
