The Brothers (San Francisco Bay)
The Brothers are a pair of small islands, East Brother and West Brother, located in the San Rafael Bay embayment of San Pablo Bay, roughly 1,000 feet (300 m) west of Point San Pablo in Contra Costa County, California.
The Brothers, along with The Sisters (two exposed rocks two miles (3.2 kilometres) north of the Marin Islands, just off Point San Pedro) on the opposite side of San Pablo Strait, were originally reserved for military purposes by order of President Andrew Johnson in 1867. After many a court battle, the plans were scrapped.
