This quaint, charming bayside city tucked among the Marin County hills features a variety of art galleries, boutiques, specialty shops and fine dining. You’ll be greeted by the Elephant Light Standards, a pair of concrete elephants flanking the entrance to Vina Del Mar Park which have come to be a symbol of Sausalito.
Take time to meander through the narrow streets at your own pace and enjoy views of the San Francisco skyline. Check out the Bay Model Visitor Center, visit the Bay Area Discovery Museum, rent a kayak, go hiking or biking, or tour the houseboats and marinas.
Originally named Punta de Tiburon (Point of Sharks) by Spanish explorers in the 1800s, this historic railroad town feels like a quaint, romantic New England fishing village with a modern flair.

Enjoy a lovely meal (own expense) at a casual outdoor café or high-end waterfront restaurant offering spectacular views of San Francisco.

WE WERE BLESSED WITH GOOD WEATHER AND THE FERRY TRIP WAS GOOD VALUE WITH INFORMATIVE INFORMATION AND GOOD PICTURE TAKING OPPORTUNITIES. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS A PLEASANT WAY OF CRUISING THE HARBOR
My trip to Sausalito was perfect, had lunch at Spinnaker restaurant which was excellent and ferry was very well organised.
One of the two earphones issued did not work. Narrative was informative and complete. Staff was helpful and kind. They got that horde of bikes on and loaded very quickly and neatly. Enjoyable trip.
The ferry trip from San Francisco to Sausalito is a very pleasant way of spending a half-day in San Francisco. However, the service from pier 39, for a tourist, is less convenient and gives less photo opportunities than the competing Golden Gate service from the Ferry Terminal. We booked return tickets with them through Viator, but these were only accepted as singles by the local tour company, who insisted I pay extra for the journey back. I reported this to Viator, who provided a full refund very quickly. Full marks to Viator, a lot less to the ferry company!
Great place to visit. Ferry very straightforward although lengthy queues on the way back
Different locations for picking up tickets and getting on ferry at two different locations was very difficult as I have COPD and asthma so it is hard to walk very far.
Seven ladies loved the ferry ride over to Sausalito. The Art Festival was great art, food, sun, and live music! Going back to S F had 180 bikes/ bikers plus a ferry load of others--- crowded ..but we all got back. Everyone was helpful....many, many sailboats out. for Labor Day weekend! Thanks !
Clean and well maintained ferry. Be sure to stick to the timetable and do check on the 'correct' port of call!
Wish I had chosen Tiburon instead of Sausalito, with its pricy shops and restaurants. After disembarking, the only thing to do, if on foot, is stroll the main drag and decide where to eat.
