Geocache Description:

Otis Redding sang, "sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away." You're in for a treat when you find this location, for it has the tides, the world famous Golden Gate Bridge, the Rock (Alcatraz) and mist from the bay. It's one of Geocaching's most visited sites!!! And hey, congratulations to all the visitors, this cache has almost 2000 logged visits, one of the most venerable caches of all time anywhere!!! Way to go SF.

This is regarded as one of Geocaching's most revered sites. Thanks for all the compliments from all those who have visited. I highly recommend this as an after dark cache on a clear night.

It's real easy to get to...with a slight twist. Whoever said that good things are hard to come by hasn't been to this vista point. It has a nice history (click on user's web page above), but the view says it all. The organ does not come with the monkey. Mother Nature plays the music.

Note: Apparently, there's also a letterbox near this cache, so don't mistake it for this cache and please don't take that game's rubber stamp, it's the main part of the game. Let's be good neighbors.

A note about TB's. This used to be a great TB motel, but muggles have been raiding them, so PLEASE DO NOT leave TB's here for the time being. It's disappointing, but for the TB's well being, don't place any here for the next few months.

Please replace the cache carefully and keep it well hidden. There are those pesky muggles all the time so be stealthy. It's a smallish container so bring small stuff. Beware, it's tricky to find, but enjoy the hunt, it's a lot like looking for Easter eggs!

Come visit one of San Francisco's busiest Geocaching spots. Come by and find out why. And if you can, post some pictures, they're fun to see. This is a great cache if you're biking or just a place to chill out. My appreciation to the folks who help maintain and keep this cache going and keeping it as accessible as long as it has. What a great sense of community.
