San Francisco Ferry Service

The scenic Tiburon Peninsula is located on the San Francisco Bay and has breathtaking views of Angel Island and the Golden Gate bridge. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the convenient ferry service to both Angel Island State Park, a haven for biking and hiking, Sausalito, or to San Francisco, which is just six miles across the bay. Commuters queue up daily for the commute ferry to the financial district.

Three private yacht clubs, San Francisco (SFYC), Corinthian Yacht Club, and the Tiburon Yacht Club provide berths for hundreds of sailboats of local yachtsmen: public and private tennis and swimming facilities are also available to residents.

Tiburon has evolved into a casually sophisticated community that ranks among Forbes top 25 residential cities in the United States. Tiburon has also become a favorite destination of Bay Area visitors – a day trip not to miss if coming to the Bay Area for the first time. Hop on the ferry from San Francisco and enjoy a waterfront lunch at the popular Sam’s Café or Servino Restaurant.

 

THE HISTORY OF TIBURON...
 

Lyford Tower

Originally named “Punta de Tiburon” (Point of Sharks) by Spanish Explorers in 1776, the historic railroad town of Tiburon is reminiscent of a quaint New England fishing village. Now a quaint yet bustling paradise on the bay Tiburon is bound by water on three sides, stretching southward and forming the east border of lovely Richardson Bay.

In the beginning Tiburon was home to at least fifty Indian Villages. Shell mounds, Petroglyphs on the rock face of Ring Mountain, and the occasional find of mortars and cooking stones are testimony to this portion of Tiburon’s history.

Created in 1884 as a waterfront terminus for the San Francisco and Northwestern Pacific Railroad, Tiburon was a settlement whose rail yard included 50 buildings, among them rain sheds, a round house, machine shops, offices and a wharf whose double piers fed the ferries to San Francisco. By 1909, the passenger railroad lines and ferries had moved to Sausalito, leaving only the machine shops and freight terminal in their wake. The last train left Tiburon in 1967. 

Shoreline Lounging

The town was created as a result of the railroad and a long line of ferries that would carry passengers across the Bay to San Francisco. The first elegant homes were built mostly by wealthy San Franciscans, as summer retreats. Main Street Tiburon was rebuilt twice after being laid waste by fire.

Tiburon is now a beautiful enclave of historical landmarks, parks, world-class restaurants and shopping areas. The residential architecture is a mix of small cottages, many of them beautifully remodeled and contemporary showplaces located in the hills and on the water, many with spectacular views and sensational examples of engineering that jet over the water.
 

Belvedere- Tiburon Landmarks Society...

The Belvedere- Tiburon Landmarks Society manages and maintains the Old St. Hilary’s Landmark and the surrounding wildflower preserve, the SS china Cabin, the Railroad-ferry Depot Museum, and the Landmarks Art and Garden Center. The society activities include historic publications, botanical and architectural tours, concerts, lectures, and exhibits. The History Collection includes photographs, art, artifacts, maps, documents and a reference library. The Landmarks are open to the general public Wednesday and Sunday from April thru October each year and are available for rent year round! One can have their wedding, reception party or business meeting at one of the beautiful Landmarks overlooking the Bay.

EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS... 

Angel Island State Park
Just 10 minutes away from downtown Tiburon by ferry is Angel Island State Park. The 740-acre island is a microcosm of California history, from its origins as a Miwok hunting ground and a Civil War encampment to a notorious immigration station erroneously dubbed “Ellis Island of the West,” a World War II troop processing station, and a NIKE missile site.

Recreational opportunities abound on Angel Island, from 13 miles of hiking trails and nearly as many biking trails, to kayaking trips around the island. Bicycle and kayak rentals are available on the island; bring your own picnic or dawdle at the island cafe. Seasonal, narrated tram tours provide a comfortable, convenient way for visitors of all ages to sightsee.
