Take Golden Gate Ferry to San Francisco’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 16!

Added Service from Larkspur!
Arrive at Least 60 Minutes Early - Purchase Tickets Early

Let Golden Gate Ferry take you to San Francisco's 168th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 16! The parade starts from Market and 2nd Streets—just a few short blocks from Golden Gate's San Francisco Ferry Terminal.

Golden Gate Ferry will supplement its weekend schedule from Sausalito and Larkspur with added Larkspur Ferry service. Added trips will "load and go," meaning that boats will leave as soon as they are full and ready to depart. Boarding will be on a first-come, first-served basis. See regular weekend timetables below.

Golden Gate Ferry gets busy for events like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade so customers should arrive at least 60 minutes early and should purchase tickets in advance!

With the festive nature of this city event, Golden Gate Ferry will be adding security patrols aboard Larkspur Ferry vessels. Underage drinking will NOT be permitted in the parking lot or onboard vessels, and NO OUTSIDE BEVERAGES will be permitted onboard the vessels.
