MARE ISLAND
 
 

Glacier is moving to Mare Island, Pier 10, on Waterfront Ave., between 4th and 5th Street.

Mare Island is located on the western edge of the City of Vallejo in southwestern Solano County in Northern California. It is approximately 30 miles northeast of San Francisco in the North Bay subregion of the San Francisco Bay Area, and approximately 60 miles from Sacramento, California's state capital. Mare Island is approximately 3.5 miles long and one mile wide. Established in 1854, Mare Island Naval Shipyard was the first naval facility on the Pacific Coast. It was officially shut down in 1996 as a result of base closures in the San Francisco Bay area.
