Oyster Point Marina/Park is a 455 berth public marina and 33-acre (13.4 HA) county park in the city of South San Francisco, California on the western shoreline of San Francisco Bay.[1]

The City of South San Francisco owns Oyster Point Marina/Park. The Harbor District has operated Oyster PointMarina/Park under a Joint Powers Agreement with the City since 1977.

The marina is located close to nearby job centers in various office complexes and high rises in downtown of this city known as a regional biotech center. It includes a fuel dock, boat launching ramp, and fishing pier. In addition to boating and parkland, there are hiking and jogging trails, picnic areas, and 2.3 miles (3.7 km) of sandy beaches.[2]

WETA South San Francisco Ferry

The high and increasing traffic on Highway 101 and job centers being located adjacent to this marina has led the San Francisco Bay Water Transit Authority to develop a ferry terminal here. During the planning phases it was proposed that the terminal operate service to downtown San Francisco as well as Bay Farm Island in Alameda on the opposite shore.[3] Service was to begin in 2011.[4]

Two docks were removed for the pilings and floats based ferry terminal and the Army Corps of Engineers set up breakwaters in order to allow safe ferry operations.[4]

The San Francisco Bay Ferry began operating a commute hour ferry service between the South San Francisco Ferry Terminal at the Oyster Point Marina and the Oakland Ferry Terminal at Jack London Square in Oakland and the Main Street ferry terminal in Alameda in June 2012.[5]
