Fisherman's Wharf is the most popular tourist attraction in San Francisco. It is crowded for a reason; there are so many fun things to do on the waterfront. Just walking up and down the piers and through the parks is exciting enough, but dive into one of the many museums if you care for something out of the ordinary. The wharf has an old WWII submarine, the USS Pampanito, which is available for touring, as well as an aquarium, a wax museum, and a Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum. Or take the opportunity to set sail on a cruise ship around the bay from one of these San Francisco piers.

Entertainment at the Wharf

At the wharf there are plenty of street performers to see, and shops or restaurants to indulge in. Kids can ride on a carousel or play in an arcade. If you seek adventure, then take the entire family on a thrilling RocketBoat ride or sail on a whale watching tour of the bay.

Pier 39 Sea Lions

Be sure to visit the sea lions on the k-dock on Pier 39. They migrated to the docks in 1990 after a 1989 earthquake and have stayed ever since. The population is scarce during the summer months as most migrate to the Channel Islands for breeding, but it increases greatly during the winter.

FAQs

Q1: Where can I park?

A1: There is always parking available near Pier 39 off of the Embarcadero. There are parking discounts if you eat at one of the restaurants at the Wharf. All parking is expensive however, so consider taking public transportation.

Q2: Is there shopping at the Wharf?

A2: Anchorage Square is a great shopping destination, perfect for finding souvenirs. There is also Dudley Perkins Co., a San Francisco staple and licensed Harley Davidson Dealer. Find the Walgreens on Bay or Jones Streets for your everyday needs.
