San Francisco Bay Ferry is the best way to get to San Francisco Giants games. We have service options for passengers coming from Alameda, Oakland and Vallejo. Check out the following pages for details on service for specific routes:

Details on the Oracle Park Ferry (Oakland & Alameda) route
Details on the Oracle Park Ferry (Vallejo) route

For evening games, direct ferry service to and/or from Oracle Park is offered. Reservations are strongly encouraged for direct ballpark service as ferries will max out. Learn more and buy advance tickets at the links above.

For games in which there is no direct service, we have details on using regular ferry service to get to the game. On weekends, this includes the free Ballpark Short Hop connecting the ferry terminals at Downtown San Francisco and Oracle Park. Learn more at the links above.

San Francisco Bay Ferry provides the free Ballpark Short Hop for weekend afternoon games. Learn more below.

San Francisco Bay Ferry now provides a free Ballpark Short Hop for weekend afternoon games. This short hop provides a great connection to Oracle Park for all San Francisco Bay Ferry routes serving the Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal on weekends (Oakland & Alameda, Richmond and Vallejo).
