Additional Location or Other Information

Daily departure is from Pier 43 ½, located at the intersections of Taylor St. and Embarcadero in the heart of historic Fisherman’s Wharf, right behind the famous Fisherman’s Wharf Crab Wheel and next to such well-known restaurants as Alioto’s, the Franciscan, and Boudin. Red and White Fleet can offer one-hour of parking validation for cars entering the Triangle Parking lot (located across the street from Pier 43 1/2 cornered by Jefferson, Taylor Street and Little Embarcadero). Validation can be offered to cars that enter the lot between 10:00am and before the final public cruise of the day departs. We’re sorry, but we are unable to validate if you entered the lot before 10:00am.
