Take "coastal distancing" to the next level with a secluded getaway to the privately owned, San Jose Island. It’s a brief ferry ride from Port A, but you’ll feel like you’re a world away. Known by the locals as St. Jo's, the island is largely uninhabited and undisturbed, with miles of quiet open beach to explore. Pack a picnic and bring a basket for your sea shell collection!

Visiting San Jose Island:

  • Hop on passenger ferry boat at Fisherman’s Wharf
  • Ferry service is limited, so plan ahead
  • Be sure to bring food, water, and any other provisions as there are no stores on the island

Rates for the Jetty Boat round trip:

  • $18.00 for anyone 13 or older
  • $9.00 for age 6-12
  • Ages 5 and under are free
