San Francisco Bay is actually a drowned river valley that parallels the California coastline and connects to the Pacific Ocean via a strait known as the Golden Gate. The bay is 60 miles (97 kilometers) long and ranges from three to 12 miles (five to 19 kilometers) wide, depending on the exact location you’re looking at. The bay is home to a total of four islands: Treasure, Yerba Buena, Angel, and the infamous Alcatraz.
Predominant theory in the scientific community suggests that the bay was submerged during the melting of the last glacial ice sheet. The bay covers an area of approximately 550 square miles, which is larger than the combined sizes of the cities of San Diego and San Jose. It is largely filled by fresh water from the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers.
