This month, Blue & Gold Fleet is celebrating 40 remarkable years of ferry and water excursion services on San Francisco Bay. The company was founded by Roger Murphy and developer Warren Simmons at the same time as PIER 39 launched operations in 1979. The company started by providing pleasure cruises from PIER 39’s West Marina with a passenger vessel. Today, in addition to providing numerous excursion services, Blue & Gold operates SF Bay Ferry’s fleet of 14 commuter ferryboats.
