The San Andreas Fault has created this long and narrow bay, about 30 miles north of San Francisco. This was once home to Indians, the Coast Miwok.




Sir Francis Drake is thought to have landed in nearby Drakes Estero in 1579. Members of the VizcaĆ­no Expedition found the Bay in 1603, and thinking it a river, named it Rio Grande de San Sebastian.
