Pier 39 San Francisco

Attraction

Pier 39

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing San Francisco holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Bustling, energetic Pier 39 is a great place to kick off your holiday in San Francisco, whether your travelling with family and friends, on your own or as part of a romantic getaway.

As one of California's most-loved destinations, Pier 39 is alive with sounds, sights and tastes to give you a true flavour of San Francisco. Perhaps the area's most famous residents, the sea lions, are a must-see: they arrived in 1990 and have since set up home on the surrounding rocks and landscapes, making for a unique, adorable sight. 

Once you've taken hundreds of photos of these wonderful marine mammals, head to one of the many restaurants for a bowl of clam chowder, before visiting the reams of souvenir shops to pick up some momentos. You'll also find the Aquarium of the Bay here, where more than 20,000 local sea creatures await, as well as countless street performers backed by a glorious view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
