Sea Lion Anniversary

27th Anniversary of the Sea Lions’ Arrival

January 2017

Join us to celebrate the 27th anniversary of the sea lions’ arrival to PIER 39! The boisterous barking pinnipeds began arriving in droves shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake hit San Francisco in October 1989. With a protected environment and plentiful supply of food from the Bay, the sea lions quickly decided to make PIER 39’s K-Dock their new home. Click here to learn more about the sea lions’ arrival.
