Fisherman’s Wharf

The Fisherman’s Wharf is not only one of the most popular San Francisco tourist attractions, is actually a city neighborhood. The name derives from the first settlement, around 1800s, of Italian immigrants, keen fishermen.

Fisherman’s Wharf houses some of the Top-Attractions you will see during your stay in San Francisco, including Pier 39, the Cannery Shopping Center, Ghirardelli Square, the Aquarium of the Bay, many restaurants such as Bubba Gump Shrimp, Alioto’s, Joe’s Crab Shack & much more! Though possibly, the most famous attractions of it all is the Sea lion colony that since 1989 took over the wooden docks next to Pier 39. Day in and day out you will catch the popular Sea lions laying on the docks and soaking up the sun!

Fisherman’s Wharf is also the center of many important events held in San Francisco throughout the year, including the beautiful fireworks display for the Fourth of July!

Arrive in time at Pier 39 and start the evening with a great Crab !!!

Many of the Sightseeing Cruises departs from this area, and many tours will stop here to let you visit some of the most popular attractions.

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
