Port Location – The Port of Redwood City is located at Seaport Boulevard, Redwood City, approximately 2.5km’s from the town centre.

Transport Links – SamTrans buses of the San Mateo County Transit District serve Redwood City and link to Caltrain, as well as having express bus service to downtown SF and to San Jose, and Peninsular points between.
Equally convenient to SFO and to San Jose Intl. Airports, Redwood City is also served by the little San Carlos airport, which hosts an air museum worth going out of your way to see.
Redwood City has a deep seaport, even though the logging trade is not noticeable any more. Small craft and fishing boats head out of the port, sailing classes are available, and there's at least one cruise ship that makes port here. The nearby marshes and salt-evaporating ponds make for nice quiet noodling about in a kayak.
