Getting to Angel Island
Each Family Day ticket includes one roundtrip ferry ticket from either Tiburon or San Francisco. You do NOT have to purchase a separate ferry ticket. You can choose when to arrive and depart from Angel Island based on the standard Saturday schedule of the ferry of your choice.
- SAN FRANCISCO — 1 Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA 94105
- TIBURON — 21 Main Street, Tiburon, CA 94920
PRO TIP: The San Francisco ferry will take longer to reach Angel Island and return at the end of the day. The Tiburon ferry is the preferred way to visit for those who are prone to motion sickness. If you plan to drive, Tiburon has more parking options, while the San Francisco ferry is easily accessible by public transit.
Arriving on Angel Island
Both ferries will arrive at Ayala Cove. Once you arrive, you will be greeted by California State Park employees who will welcome you to the island and let you know how to find the Immigration Station. The Immigration Station is located located 1.2 miles from Ayala Cove. You can choose to walk or take the free shuttle service.
This event is part of CA State Parks Week.
