Technical Tour

  1. On the Boat Tour of five San Francisco Bay Area toll bridges scheduled for Wednesday, September 20, 2006, the following bridges will be visited:
    1. Golden Gate Bridge
    2. East Crossing San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
    3. West Crossing San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
    4. Richmond-San Rafael Bridge
    5. New Carquinez Bridge
  2. Transportation to the boat dock in Sausalito will be provided.  Two chartered buses will be leaving the front entrance of the Marriott-San Mateo Hotel at 12:15 pm sharp.  Please be there by 12:00 noon.  If you plan to drive on your own, please contact the Tour Coordinator, Bob Tanaka (Caltrans), at (916) 227-8784.  He can provide you with directions to the boat dock.
  3. Three boats will depart from the boat dock in Sausalito at 1:00 pm.  It is estimated that the Boat Tour will last 5.5 hours, the boats will return to the boat dock by about 6:30 pm, and the buses will return to the Marriott-San Mateo Hotel by approximately 7:30 pm.  These are just time estimates.  It is difficult to estimate the ending time of the Boat Tour, and Bay Area traffic can be unpredictable. 
  4. The Boat Tour fee includes the bus and boat rides, gratuity, and a buffet lunch.
  5. For the Boat Tour, please bring appropriate warm clothing (heavy jacket, cap, gloves, etc.) and rain gear.  Also, rubber soled shoes are recommended (boat shoes, athletic shoes, etc.)
