SF Day Trip: the Tiburon Ferry

SF Day Trip: the Tiburon Ferry

It’s officially springtime in San Francisco and, this past weekend, that meant 75 degree sunshine, plenty of bloody marys on deck, and ferrying over to one of our all time favorite day trip spots- Sam’s Anchor Cafe in Tiburon.


We decided to take the ferry over to Tiburon because there’s really nothing like seeing a city from the water, especially when that city is SF. With all of our recent rain, the Marin Headlands were so glistening green you’d think we were in Ireland, and the bay so blue I felt like I had been transported to Lake Como.  But, nope, we were just in our own backyard.

Tiburon and Sausalito are two places right outside of San Francisco that I make sure to take any visitors to when I’m tour-guiding them around the City.  These two small waterfront towns are easy to get to by car or by ferry, or even by biking over the golden gate bridge!

This time, we decided to do the ferry. A few girls had never done it and we all were trying to take advantage of the beautiful day we had by getting out on the water. Not to mention we were craving delicious brunch with a sunny outdoor atmosphere… read: Tiburon’s most famous (and delicious) brunch spot:


Sam’s is well known in the city as THE spot to get away to on a sunny day, and it is almost always crowded. And for good reason! Delicious and fresh seafood, the best bloodies in the bay, and an unbeatable view make this place THE spot.  We ate crab cake benedicts, fried calamari, shrimp cocktails, crab cesar salads and the MOST delicious burger while sitting on the waterfront watching the sailboats come in for their lunch breaks. It was so much fun and so, so beautiful.
