    Ahoy! It's time to float to work at Facebook.

    The Menlo Park-based social network giant has started running a ferry service from San Francisco to Redwood City.

    Facebookers are clicking like on the ability to ride the boat from Pier 40 near AT&T Park to Redwood City, where a shuttle then takes them 10 minutes to the Facebook campus, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    [BAY] Looking Back: Facebook Turns 10
    NBC Bay Area's Business and Tech Reporter Scott Budman has followed Facebook for most of its 10 years. He takes a look back at social media giant.

    The Facebook catamaran so far makes one full trip up and down the Peninsula per day, according to a Facebook spokesperson. It carries up to 30 people and offers free coffee and Wi-Fi, the newspaper reported.

    This is a trial program. Facebook will not say if it is looking into making it permanent.

    Mountain View-based Google has previously operated a ferry program on a trial basis from the East Bay and the City.
