    Commuting on the ferry is soul enriching. Taking in the open sky, the ocean air, and the view of the bay beats the tunnels of Bart any day. Highly recommend taking it from east bay to SF.

    Great photo opportunities if you get up for the early ferry. Plenty of seating, if you get on with a bike at Oakland, put it out back. Much more civilized way to commute than the shitty BART.

    Forget the crowds and delays of BART. This is the civilized way to get to SF. Grab a coffee at the snack bar, hop on the free wifi and enjoy the amazing views of the bay!

    Grab a beer at BevMo! (Embarcadero and Clay) and enjoy it on the boat. Just keep it on the DL around the the crew members.
