As with Alcatraz, Ferry tickets include both the cost of the ferry ride and the admission price for Angel Island State Park. Like your cable bill, the two charges cannot be un-bundled.
Two different ferry services dock at Angel Island, the Angel Island – Tiburon Ferry that links to the Main St. Ferry Pier in Tiburon, and the private Blue and Gold Fleet ferries that sail to Pier 39 / Pier 41 at Fisherman’s Wharf. Tickets for one service cannot be used on the other.
Angel Island – Tiburon Ferry Ticket Prices
Ferry tickets are sold only as you board the Angel Island – Tiburon Ferry at the pier on Main St. in Tiburon. They take checks or cash, but no credit cards. They do not accept Clipper Cards.
Passengers with bikes pay an additional $1.00 surcharge in Tiburon.
Insiders Tip: All Angel Island – Tiburon Ferry tickets are Round Trip, so if you plan to sail to Angel Island from San Francisco and then return to Tiburon it will cost more than if you did the same “service mixing” in Sausalito.
If you have a large group or you’re a school the Angel Island ferry offers discounts. Their contact link is here.
