Take Golden Gate Ferry to San Francisco's St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 14!

On Saturday, March 14, San Francisco’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade starts at 2nd and Market in San Francisco at 11:30 a.m. and heads to the San Francisco Civic Center. Both Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry and Sausalito Ferry can take you to within blocks of the starting point.

Purchase your tickets in advance to avoid long lines at the terminal. Tickets are available from ticket machines. Clipper is also accepted. Ferries will depart on time and will not wait for customers waiting to purchase tickets.

Golden Gate Ferry often gets busy for events like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. As a reminder, underage drinking is NOT permitted in the parking lot or onboard, and customers will NOT be permitted to bring outside beverages onboard the vessels. With the rather festive nature of this event, Golden Gate Ferry will be adding security patrols aboard the Larkspur Ferry.

Further, Golden Gate Ferry reminds all riders about the Golden Rules of Riding Golden Gate Ferry:
