Red & White Fleet
The company offers scenic tours of San Francisco Bay and has not provided ferry service since 1995, when the assets and ferry routes were sold to rival Blue & Gold Fleet, LLP. Red & White Fleet also offers some land based tour packages in concert with other suppliers and offers a number of charter packages, as well.
In the early 2000s the fleet ran commuter ferry service between the San Francisco Ferry Terminal and the city of Richmond's Richmond Ferry Terminal in the Marina Bay District, however the service was discontinued due to low ridership. This created a large conflict between the Richmond City Council and the R&W Fleet. A vocal opponent of dissolving the service was Green Party mayor Gayle McGlaughlin.
