Each one-way trip takes 20-25 minutes, including boarding and disembarking. Riders board at the K Dock at Berkeley Marina in front of Harbormaster’s office (next to Hana Japan Restaurant). Berkeley Marina is on bus line 81, which goes to UC Berkeley, BART, and the Berkeley Capitol Corridor Amtrak Station. Our riders are also permitted to park for free across the street in the South Sailing Basin gravel parking lot near the UC Aquatic Center.
