Sausalito Art Festival and Sausalito Ferry Service Labor Day Weekend 2019


Over the upcoming Labor Day weekend, Saturday, August 31 through Monday, September 2, Golden Gate Ferry is excited to be operating direct ferry service from San Francisco to the Sausalito Art Festival! Boats will operate between the Golden Gate San Francisco Ferry Terminal, located behind the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero at the foot of Market Street, and the Army Corps of Engineers dock in front of the Bay Model on the Sausalito waterfront.

This added service supplements Golden Gate Ferry’s regular Labor Day holiday weekend ferry services between the San Francisco Ferry Building and the Larkspur Ferry Terminal and the downtown Sausalito Ferry Landing.
