Staying at Berkeley Marina for 3 nights - where to go, what to do?

I'm traveling for work to Berkeley/Berkeley Marina (staying at the Doubletree) this week and will have 3 late afternoons/nights to myself this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I'm leaving Sunday morning. On Thursday I arrive at the SFO airport before 1 pm so I've got the whole day after that. Friday I will be in UC Berkeley until 5pm so I'd like to check that area out while I'm up there. Saturday I'll be staying at the marina and free after 5pm. [more inside]

Reliable cab company in Berkeley?

I need a recommendation for a reliable cab company to take me from Berkeley to Oakland Airport. I do not want to use Super Shuttle or BayPorter because they make stops and pick up other people.
