  • Orientation

  • Stay as long as you like - ferries return every 30 minutes. Average length of stay is 2 -3 hours.

After your visit to "The Rock", all of San Francisco is yours to explore with a three-day pass to open-top hop-on hop-off buses. Stay aboard the buses and listen to the live narration or get off at your favorite spot to explore it up close.
