It’s a very quick ferry ride- about 30 mins and a super scenic one. Leave it to SF to monetize a 30 minute ferry ride and sell booze!

The ferry is quick and convenient if you want to spend a few hours in Sausalito. Direct between pier 41 and the shops area of Sausalito.

The lines were long and the boat was crowded (weekend) but everyone was happy and having fun. Great views of the bay on the way from Sausalito to Fisherman's Wharf. Inexpensive.

A great way to get to and from Sausalito which is far less than a Uber/Lyft ride. Beware that the bikers can really congest the onboarding and departure if you are a walk on passenger.

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.
