Blue and Gold Ferry
One of the most scenic things to do in San Francisco, the Blue and Gold Ferry service of bay cruise and ferry tours makes regular runs across the bay, leaving daily from Fisherman’s Wharf (and on weekdays during commute hours from the ferry building). An exhilarating and scenic 45-minute ride will drop you in Tiburon, a quaint village that’s home to the seriously affluent. The centre of the action is Sam’s Anchor Café, a casual bar and restaurant with a patio famous locally for its sunshine and party people. A bright Saturday on the patio at Sam’s, surrounded by smiling, slightly rowdy fellow patrons, beer in hand, fish and chips on the way, water glistening, sailboats gliding by-such is the sum of earthly pleasure.
