There are several points around the bay where commercial vessels can dock. Smaller private docks are usually not suitable for larger boats. Yacht club facilities can sometimes be used depending on the club and if the charter has a membership at that club. The following list shows which docks can be used by which boats. We have included maps for your convenience to each of the docks.

Note: For San Francisco Boarding special attention needs to be paid to the fact that from the Ferry Building the docks run north and west using odd numbers and south and east using even numbers. So from the ferry building odd numbers run toward Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even number piers run toward the Bay Bridge and beyond the Pac Bell Ball Park.
