Comments Tiburon Cal was the San Francisco & North pacific rail road terminal built in 1884. It was active up until the 1960's The old waiting room is now a Museam and a full scale model of the area in about 1910. There are many artifacts in display cases to view. There are photos of the old piers from over the years. The diving here is best in Sept and Oct where the visablity can be 10+ feet. You can see Piles of coal,Cast iron wheels,Old pilings,Coal ash, iron fittings,Link cod, Halibut, perch, With luck a 100 year old bottle.
