Best Way to Get Across the Bay After Dark - 2013
Tideline Water Taxi
Forget the tethers of general ferry service, and stay for that extra drink in Sausalito. Tideline Water Taxi offers service for up to six to S.F. piers 1.5 and 40; Hyde Street; and the St. Francis Yacht Club, with destinations across the bay including Angel Island, Tiburon, and Sausalito. For someone who wants to impress a date or out-of-town guests, this is the way to do it. What's cooler than bringing someone to waiting boat so that the two of you can get ice cream across the bay? While the price is steep compared to Golden Gate Ferry, you get your own boat across the bay at the time you want to go home. Of course, don't expect to hail one down as they float past. Call to make a reservation; earlier is always better.
