About your Instructors
Group meets at the Ferry Building on the San Francisco Embarcadero Waterfront
We encourage you to take public transit to the Ferry Building. If you are taking BART, get off at the Embarcadero and then walk to the Ferry Building. The walk is not round-trip. Bus 39 departs every 20 minutes to Fisherman’s Wharf, which will connect with Muni that will take you back to the Ferry Building. If you have time, we recommend you take what you learned from the hike and photograph at the Wharf on your own afterwards.
