The Angel Island Ferry Pier in Tiburon
This terminal is operated by the Angel Island – Tiburon Ferry Company, a private operator that has a contract with the State of California to serve Angel Island State Park. No other entity offers Angel Island service from Marin County, where both Tiburon and Angel Island are located. Unlike Alcatraz, however, private vessels can sail directly to Angel Island and pay a fee to dock there.
Insiders Tip: When you drive by on Main St. it’s easy to miss the Angel Island Ferry pier, since a narrow passageway between the Water’s Edge Hotel and a shop called Main Treat is the most direct route that leads you to the boarding area. Once you park at a Tiburon ferry parking lot and walk through the alleyway between the buildings you’ll see the waiting area deck just to your left, and the gangway to the ferries just beyond it. You can also walk around the edge of Guaymas restaurant at the end of the block and take a boardwalk behind the building to reach the Angel Island pier.
Blue & Gold Fleet offers weekend service and Golden Gate Ferry operates commuter ferries linking Tiburon to San Francisco from a separate pier just to the left of the Angel Island pier, and Blue & Gold Fleet also links Angel Island with ferries to San Francisco’s Pier 39 / Pier 41 ferry terminal in Fisherman’s Wharf.
