After a morning hike in Muir Woods and an afternoon walk in Sausalito, this is a great way to see Sausilito, both bridges, Alcatraz, and San Francisco from the water.

Perfect for traveling into the city without the hassle of traffic. Price was reasonable considering we could have spent that amount on parking anyways.

Golden Gate Ferry was an easy way to make the crossing to Sausalito for a few hours. The ferry was on time and tickets were easy to buy at the kiosks.

agreed -- purchase tickets from the vending machine before boarding the ferry -- also suggest you purchase RETURN ticket to make sure there is space for you on the return ferry you want to travel on.
