Attraction

Fisherman's Wharf

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.

With something for everyone to see, do and enjoy, Fisherman's Wharf is San Francisco's greatest highlight.

This historic, waterfront fishing district dates back to the Californian Gold Rush, and today is a thriving, commercial hub filled with shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars. At the heart of San Francisco's fishing world, entertainment is the wharf's main objective: from the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum and the Aquarium of the Bay to the USS Pampanito, a World War II submarine, there's plenty to enjoy. 

See the sea lions sunbathe unashamedly at Pier 39, marvel at various street performers that dot the streets, and grab a fresh, steaming bowl of clam chowder for a true taste of California. You can also book onto one of the many Bay Cruises that depart from Fisherman's Wharf for a unique perspective of the city from the water.
