Clean ship, nice way to travel as an alternate to driving. Nice to see city from the water. Get there early, they cut off taking passengers and you’re left til the next one.

Some of the ferrys do go to Fishermans Wharf. I believe on the ferry schedule they call it pier 41. Watch the schedule for which times make this stop. Be sure to consider both going no coming. Otherwise all the ferrys go to... More
