San Francisco Bay Ferry is excited to announce that they will be offering FREE ferry tours in celebration of the Vallejo Waterfront Weekend! The tours will take place on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at various times and from both Mare Island and Vallejo. Tours are child-friendly and will be fun for the whole family.

The tours will offer a comprehensive history and tour of the local waterfront area, stopping at both the Mare Island and Vallejo terminals. Passengers may depart at either terminal. The tours will last between 35 and 40 minutes. Boarding is first-come first-served so ensure you arrive in a timely manner if you wish to take part
