Posted on May 14, 2011 by Dan BrekkeFriday Night Ferry A first for me on the San Francisco-Oakland ferry: We passed between an outbound container ship (the MSC craft at left) and one still being loaded/unloaded (the Hapag-Lloyd ship on the right). For a minute, it was like sailing through a canyon. Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInTumblrReddit

Neat. How far is that ferry ride?
Rob, that’s the only drawback (from my point of view): It’s about six miles in a straight line–maybe seven and a half with the course the boat has to take. It takes only half an hour from point to point, and that’s with a stop on the East Bay side before you get to Oakland.
Yeah, this ferry pic looks like the sailing through a canyon. Where does your ferry journey ends ?
Promem, the ferry ends at Jack London Square in Oakland — a short ride, maybe 25 minutes, from the San Francisco Ferry Building.
You shared nice picture Dan. Let me know more about your first ferry travel experiences there you had.
