Fisherman's Wharf Tours

Where Italian fisherman in Genoese feluccas once trapped unsuspecting sealife, San Francisco has expertly created one of the most popular tourist attractions in America. Fisherman’s Wharf is a bustling waterfront strip, filled with shops, restaurants and a pirate’s booty of attractions.

Sea lions laze the day away sunbathing and posing for photos on Pier 39, where the Aquarium of the Bay, a carousel and carnival-style attractions keep little kids wide-eyed. At Pier 45, the Hyde Street Pier Historic Ships Collection gives navel-gazers a chance to check out tall ships, submarines and World War II warships. Bring your quarters to consult the spooky mechanical fortune tellers and save the world from space invaders at Musée Mécanique.

And visitors can head to Madame Tussauds to wander among the life-like celebrities and former presidents. The theatrical San Francisco Dungeon experience, with its live actors, dark historical vignettes and creepy boat ride, is also a curiously exciting diversion. Rain or shine, there’s something for kids and adults of all ages.

Practical Info

Fisherman’s Wharf is on the city’s northern shore, where Columbus Avenue and the Embarcadero converge, with North Beach to the south. Immediately to the west is Ghirardelli Square, a former chocolate factory that currently houses boutiques, sweet shops, a tea room and wine tasting rooms. Head west on Bay Street to visit Marina boutiques and the natural wonders of the Presidio. The area is easily accessible via bus and cable cars. Ferries to Alcatraz depart from here, as well.
