Tiburon Tours and Activities

4 Reviews
A scenic stretch of Marin County across the bay from San Francisco, Tiburon is a relaxed seaside community with charming architecture and homes that feel more like New England than California. Bay cruises, hikes, and bike tours abound, and ferries run during the week, making it easy to visit this laid-back, affluent town.

The Basics
The Tiburon waterfront is directly across from San Francisco, with impressive views of the bay and rolling hills of the Marin Headlands. Tiburon is an ideal shopping destination. On Main Street, you'll discover boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and historic Ark Row. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are nearby hikes and numerous bike trails.

Biking across the Golden Gate Bridge is the perfect way to end up in Tiburon; bike rental is available in San Francisco, and many vendors will even suggest a route for you. Bay cruises are also a great option, and some offer dinner or drinks. If you opt for a cruise, you'll need to find your own way into Tiburon, as most cruises do a loop, beginning and ending in San Francisco.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The ferry from San Francisco to Tiburon does not run on weekends and holidays.
  • Weather can change quickly in the Bay Area, so bring a sweater, and expect winds gusting off the bay.
  • Enjoy a picnic and watch the sailboats at Tiburon's Shoreline Park.

How to Get There

One of the best features of Tiburon is its accessibility by ferry. During weekdays, cruise across the bay from downtown San Francisco via the Blue & Gold Fleet Tiburon Ferry. You may find skip-the-line tickets if you purchase in advance. On weekends and holidays, opt to drive. Tiburn is accessible on Highway 131 via Highway 101.

When to Get There
Though Tiburon has an inviting climate year-round, spring has mild weather and minimal rain, and fall tends to be warmest. On weekends, Tiburon's Main Street is bustling, so arrive early to check out the boutiques and cafés. The town is sleepy during the week, so expect fewer people and some shops to be closed.

Old St. Hilary’s Open Space Preserve
If you're looking for Tiburon's hidden gem and spectacular views, be sure to visit Old St. Hilary’s Open Space Preserve. With over 100 acres of protected land at the end of the Tiburon Peninsula, the site offers unparalleled bay views with the San Francisco skyline in the distance. It's a quick hike from the ferry terminal—and downtown parking lots—so be sure to wear comfy shoes.
