After a morning hike in Muir Woods and an afternoon walk in Sausalito, this is a great way to see Sausilito, both bridges, Alcatraz, and San Francisco from the water.

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.
