School Groups

San Francisco Bay Ferry offers discounted fares to local school groups seeking to use the ferry for a field trip or activity.


Groups are eligible if they are based in the nine-county Bay Area and are based in a K-12 education setting. Education-focused groups outside of schools (such as homeschool groups or after-school organizations) are welcome to apply as well.

Travel under school group pricing is available only on weekdays outside peak travel times. Advance registration and approval is required. Blackout dates apply. There is a required ratio of at least one adult chaperone per 10 participants under the age of 18. The Passenger Code of Conduct must be followed by the group members at all times.
