San Francisco Bay was an estuary on the west coast of North America on Earth. Together with the Pacific Ocean, the Bay formed the San Francisco peninsula. It was bordered on the west by the Golden Gate strait, the location of the Golden Gate Bridge. It contained a number of small islands, including Angel Island and Alcatraz. It also contained the San Francisco Bay Stadium. This bay was located in Earth Sectors 45 to 49.

In 2155, a beam fired from the verteron array on Mars by xenophobe John Frederick Paxton was redirected into the bay, missing its intended target of Starfleet Command. (ENT: "Terra Prime")

In 2258 in the alternate reality, the Narada deployed its drilling platform over the inlet of San Francisco Bay, right next to the Golden Gate Bridge, and began drilling a hole toward Earth's core. The drilling platform was destroyed by Spock in the Jellyfish, its debris falling into the bay. (Star Trek)

The next year, the USS Vengeance crashed into the bay, crushing Alcatraz as it ploughed into the city. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

In 2286, the captured Klingon Bird-of-Prey HMS Bounty crash-landed in the bay, due to the effects of the Whale Probe, but stayed afloat long enough to release the humpback whales George and Gracie. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Following the Breen attack on Earth, a ship was seen to have crashed into the bay. (DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil")

Two shots of the San Francisco Bay were included in the theatrical version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, appearing firstly in an establishing shot of both the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge and then in the background of the air tram station's interior. For the director's edition DVD of the film, the bay was shown in three new establishing shots and its usage as the facility's background was subtly altered. "We changed the bay [as seen from the air tram station] to lighten it up and be consistent with the (Golden Gate) bridge [shots]," explained Michael Matessino, the Restoration Supervisor for the director's edition. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 136, p. 28)
