Oakland Estuary via Wikipedia 1

The Oakland Estuary is the body of water running between Oakland and the City of Alameda, flowing out into the San Francisco Bay.

The estuary was originally considered part of San Antonio Creek, and did not completely separate Alameda into an island. Although the idea was put forth as early as 1877, it wasn't until 1902 that a channel was completed between the estuary and San Leandro Bay.
