Turn Valentine’s Day Into a Romantic Day Trip With Free Ferry Rides to Treasure Island

Published on February 9, 2024


Make a new memory this Valentine’s Day with a complementary ferry ride to Treasure Island.

The Treasure Island Ferry is giving San Francisco’s sweethearts the perfect move for Valentine’s Day — free ferry rides. Named one of the San Francisco Chronicle‘s “24 San Francisco things to do in 2024,” taking the Treasure Island Ferry bookends a memorable day trip out of the ordinary. 

While San Francisco is known for its distinctive neighborhoods, each one with its own date-night go-tos, from the Italian restaurants of North Beach to the cocktail lounges of the Mission District, Valentine’s Day calls for something special.

Complimentary rides across the water to Treasure Island offers couples the perfect opportunity to venture beyond their familiar blocks and routine eateries to instead immerse themselves in the beauty of the Bay. Whether discovering Treasure Island’s vibrant dining scene or exploring its scenic trails, visitors are surrounded by landmark views, from the San Francisco skyline to the Marin Headlands, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge, from Alcatraz Island to Angel Island.

On Treasure Island, couples can enjoy a lunch with panoramic skyline views at Mersea, relax with a whiskey tasting at art deco-inspired Gold Bar, and go for a stroll along the tranquil shores of Clipper Cove Beach.

The best way to round out this year’s Valentine’s Day is by booking a reservation at Aracely Cafe for their special four-course meal, designed for the holiday. Hosted in a tented courtyard with heat lamps and featuring a live pianist, the one-night-only dinner pairs well with the restaurant’s relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Choose from entrees like roasted beef tenderloin with scalloped potatoes or wild mushroom and ricotta cavatelli, with desserts that include lemongrass panna cotta and red velvet lava cake. Then catch the ferry home under the stars.

Cupid-struck couples can book free ferry tickets for February 14th by entering promo code “TILove24” at checkout. The Treasure Island Ferry departs multiple times a day from the iconic Ferry Building, offering a scenic ~10-minute journey to the island with views of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz Island, and the Bay Bridge.

Whether savoring a gourmet meal, sipping on artisanal spirits, or exploring the island’s natural splendor, Treasure Island promises to be the destination for a Valentine’s Day to remember.
