Oakland to San Francisco by Ferry!

We stayed in Oakland at The Waterfront Hotel, which was amazing! We ventured to Pier 39 and the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco by ferry!

Instead of a 30 minute drive plus parking and fees, it was a 40 minute ferry for $12.50 each round trip (not a great deal, but you do get an extra round trip ticket with the purchase of four).

Anyhow, it was worth it. It was tranquil, scenic, and a sweet pause in the midst of our day.

I recommend it FERRY much!
