Walked around the Marina on a pleasant summer day. As it happens there were few others there. Good views of the Bay and in the distance San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge. Some nice looking houseboats moored.

We met at the marina and went out with Captain Dan...who was great. Dress isn layers, because you'll need them all.

Berkeley Marina is a great place to jog. Also good for views of San Francisco from the East looking West. Several restaurants along the Bay with nice views. Visit!

Such positive energy here, always. It's basically the best water-level view of the SF bay. Always lots of bird action. Perfect place for a jog around the old what-used-to-be landfill. There's an interetsting back story to the establishment of this place, part and parcel with...More

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
