Come and sit on the dock of the bay and waste some time. Gorgeous views of San Francisco, Marin County and the Golden Gate Bridge. It can be a bit chilly, so dress.

Staying as we were at the Doubletree Marina we crossed the marina many times and it is surely beautiful with a lot of impressive boats.

Walked around the Marina on a pleasant summer day. As it happens there were few others there. Good views of the Bay and in the distance San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge. Some nice looking houseboats moored.

We met at the marina and went out with Captain Dan...who was great. Dress isn layers, because you'll need them all.

Berkeley Marina is a great place to jog. Also good for views of San Francisco from the East looking West. Several restaurants along the Bay with nice views. Visit!

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
