Expanded Ferry Service for Fleet Week Weekend

The San Francisco Bay Ferry will run expanded Alameda/Oakland ferry service during Fleet Week weekend, October 8th and 9th. This year, the USS Carl Vinson, formerly home-berthed at Naval Air Station Alameda, is slated to be in the parade of ships.

According to the U.S. Navy’s official website for the USS Carl Vinson, the ship was commissioned in March of 1982, and on October 28, 1983, after completing shakedown operations, she sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time, enroute to her new home port at the Alameda base.

The aircraft carrier made the news earlier this year when it was disclosed that Osama bin Laden’s body was buried at the sea from the deck of the boat.

In lieu of boarding the USS Carl Vinson, which is not permitted, the public will be allowed to board Water Emergency Transportation Authority ferries from Alameda into San Francisco to participate in Fleet Week. The San Francisco Bay Ferry will run 18 round trips per day, twice the usual number. Departures will begin at 9:00 a.m.

The public might also trying touring the United States Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf, at Pier 35, which is based at Coast Guard Island in Alameda, and which has adopted Ruby Bridges Elementary School. Visiting hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both Sunday, October 9th, and Monday, October 10th.
