Fisherman's Wharf & Pier 39

San Francisco, California Attraction

Once a famous hub during the boom of San Francisco’s fishing industry, Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco is now a lively waterfront stretch for boutique shopping, delectable dining, and exciting street entertainment. Visit the outdoor courtyard of the old peach cannery to enjoy a quick snack or gourmet meal or peruse local art galleries while listening to live music. Fisherman’s Wharf still hosts “Fish Alley”—a fresh fish marketplace where you can see your soon-to-be dinner being transferred from vessel to vendor!

Pier 39 is most famous for the colony of sea lions that crowd the docks. In the winter, locals and tourists can see upwards of 900 sea lions squawking and sunbathing at Pier 39. Not only can you see a sea lion at Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, you can also ride one! A sea lion is only one of the San Francisco-themed “carousel horses” depicted on Pier 39’s two-story handmade Italian carousel. Don't miss a day of classic San Francisco entertainment at Fisherman's Wharf.

Fisherman’s Wharf is a starting location for City Sightseeing Double Decker Bus Tours. Pick 1, 2 or 3-day Pass and explore all San Francisco at your own pace by hopping off and on at any of 32 stops. The buses run every 15 minutes, have live narration and a multilingual audio guide.
