Pier 39

 

San Francisco's
No. 1 Tourist Attraction

Pier 39 is San Francisco's No. 1 tourist attraction. Located just two blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, the two-level waterfront complex features over 110 specialty shops, fun restaurants, art galleries, live entertainment, Theater 39, carousel rides, Bay cruises and boat rides, Aquarium of the Bay — and special attractions, including SF's famous "barking" Sea Lions.

Aquarium of the Bay
Visit the Aquarium of the Bay and see its NEW Exhibits featuring Jellies, Giant Octopus and local and exotic Land-Dwelling Animals. Get an up-close view of thousands of marine animals as you walk through 300-feet of crystal clear tunnels surrounded by sharks, bat rays, eels... and more. Fun for kids and adults alike :)

Panoramic Views
Walk to the very end of Pier 39's dock to see stunning views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, San Francisco Bay, and the City skyline — it's a great place to hang out for people-watching. And don't forget your camera.

Pier 39 is also one of the best viewing areas to see the U.S. Navy Blue Angels over San Francisco Bay during the annual Fleet Week Celebrations. Walk to nearby Fisherman's Wharf and sample San Francisco's famous Dungeness Crab.


Visit Pier 39's specialty stores. We like Lefty's — it's a great place to browse and shop (fun "left-handed gifts") for people you know who are leftys.
