"Cruise on a Ferry (And Hold That Pun)" Ferry Tours of San Francisco Bay Tip by ahendley

When visiting any port city, make an effort to get out on the water. The water is the reason these cities exist - be they the great ports like New York City, Hong Kong, Venice or Marseilles or the tiny ancient ports like Portofino, Villefranche-sur-Mer or Kusadasi. To fully comprehend them, you must see them from their harbors.

Several ferries depart from behind the Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street. Good choices are the Sausalito, Tiburon and Larkspur ferries which will take you to Marin County.
