Getting Around

Walk, Ride, Drive or Cruise 

Once you arrive at the San Francisco or Oakland airport, your transportation options include rental cars, limousines, shuttle service, taxies and BART. We are 20 miles north of both airports. If you are flying into the San Jose airport, it is about 60 miles south of San Francisco.

Even better, once you are at Fisherman’s Wharf, you can easily walk to all our attractions, restaurants and shopping areas. If you’re so inclined, pedicabs, horse drawn carriages or the historic F-line streetcars will take you to your destination. Taxis, limousines, cable cars, rental cars and city buses meet all other transportation needs.
