Its huge, metal and stretches across the Golden Gate, but its not the bridge. Its the former site of the Tiburon Sub-NetDepot, where they built and deployed nets across the San Francisco Bayto keep out enemy submarines.

Long before the Tiburon Sub-Net Depot was there, this small piece ofland had many incarnations, among them are: home to Native Americans, anoriginal Spanish Ranchero, the largest Cod fish drying plant on the westcoast, a coaling station for the Navy, and it was where the cables forthe bridge were spun…in fact if you look over the edge at low tide you can still see them.

Come on along with us as we get a up close look at this little, but important piece of California’s Gold.
