About Pier 39

Originally built in the late 1970s, Pier 39 has always served locals and tourists alike with a sprawling selection of shopping, places to eat and play, sightsee, and watch the sea lions laze about on the docks. Rarely a day goes by when there isn’t something going on here, especially when considering its seasonal events, performances, art installations, 7D theatre, and the Aquarium of the Bay. Pier 39 is also a hub for a huge amount of tours and activities both wet and dry. There are just as many boat rides, sailing activities and whale sighting tours that take you out over the water as there are guided bike rides. But why should you venture elsewhere when there’s more than enough to see immediately around the pier? Activities for the kids like its Mirror Maze or ornate Carousel will keep the kiddies busy while you enjoy some wine tastings and views of islands and the unforgettable Golden Gate Bridge.

Why charter a bus for Pier 39

Planning for a large party like a family reunion or team building exercise for your office? Maybe you want to set up a field trip or simply arrange for a day of fun in one shot? A chartered bus makes transportation a walk in the park, and the excess of attractions at Pier 39 takes care of the rest. Groups both big and small, from as little as 21 people to as many as 55 people can be handled by a single bus.

About the location and the surrounding area

Located right at the northeastern edge of the Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 provides excellent views of many of the seaside attractions San Francisco is known and loved for, such as Angel Island and Alcatraz Island. There are equally great views of iconic landmarks too, like the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge. Pier 39’s proximity to the ocean also means there’s a fair amount of marine life to observe in their natural habitat as well, namely with sea lions. As many as 1,700 have been reported to have lazed about on its docks at one time. If you’re looking for more than sightseeing from Pier 39 itself, the shopping center is close to other notable areas of the city as well, such as North Beach, Chinatown, and the Embarcadero.
