Berkeley Marina, built in the late1930s, is owned by the City of Berkeley and has 1,100 berths accommodating boats from 16’ to 110’ with a breakwater entrance. There is a full service boat yard, launch ramp, fuel dock and storage area.
Before the Bay Bridge was built in 1936, Golden Gate Ferry Service provided auto ferry service from the 3.5 mi. Berkeley Pier (from original shoreline) to San Francisco for ten years. Though still standing, the pier is now closed to pedestrians and but do note there are pilings hidden under water out and around the pier and could be a hazard to sailors. Give them a call at the marina office for more information on docks and berthing. (510) 981-6740.
