PIER 39 is the perfect destination for your entire family, whether you're looking for breathtaking aquarium exhibits, various boat and ferry rides, immersive experiences, or family favorites like having a caricature done, riding the carousel or interacting with Sea Lions.
With 45 acres of entertainment and shopping, PIER 39 is home to more than a dozen restaurants, and over 90 shops and other attractions, including a 300-berth marina and 5 acre waterfront park. The PIER is home to some of the most beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Bay Bridge as well as the ocean itself. Get an up close look at the marine animals that live just below the surface of the water in the Aquarium of the Bay, and brush up on your Sea Lion trivia at the Sea Lion Center. Touch the pelt of a Sea Lion, compare your height to that of a real Sea Lion skeleton, and get a glimpse of the creatures themselves just out of the window. Every year since they first arrived on the pier in 1990, the population of sea lions has grown to over 300 regular visitors!
Test your aim at the 7D Experience and defeat ghouls in a haunted mine, shoot down robots of the wild west, go on a pirate adventure, and survive through the zombie apocalypse. This theater features state of the art technology that combines the excitement of a rollercoaster with the adrenaline of a laser blasting game. Just a few other activities on the PIER include musical stairs, an infinite mirror maze, bay theater, and fair favorites like the carousel and bungee trampolines.
Explore nearly a hundred stores and restaurants and expand your horizons. Anything from tea shops and cupcake cafes to shops that offer mythical accessories and gourmet bath salts, there is something for anyone and everyone in your group, and PIER 39 is guaranteed to be an activity filled day for the whole family!
