Ride the Ferry in the Estuary Lighted Yacht Parade

On December 4, San Francisco Bay Ferry will participate in the annual Lighted Yacht Parade along the Oakland Estuary, with beautiful views of the Oakland and Alameda waterfronts and the Bay -- not to mention the other decorated boats in the parade.

Register to ride with us and bring a new, unwrapped toy for each member of your party on the night of the parade. The toys will go to toy drives organized by local firefighters.

Boarding begins at 5 p.m. at the Main Street Alameda Ferry Terminal, with departure set for 5:15 p.m. The ferry will disembark passengers at Main Street Alameda at about 6:45 p.m.

Due to capacity constraints on our ferries, please register your entire party. If you register but cannot attend, please do others the courtesy of cancelling your registration as this event may reach capacity.

If you don't bring a donated toy, we'll ask you to purchase a mobile ferry ticket for each member of your party ($4.50 per passenger) using the Passage: Transit Ticketing app. Clipper will not be accepted.

Masks are required in indoor spaces on the ferry, except when briefly removed to eat or drink. Outdoor spaces will be available for passengers during the trip, but you will be required to wear a mask to board the ferry.
