25th Anniversary of the Sea Lions’ Arrival
January 16-19, 2015
This January, PIER 39 celebrates the 25th 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. Join PIER 39 to celebrate these playful mammals with Sea Lion Encounter Walking Tours, refreshments, special discounts and more from January 16-19.
February 14 – 22, 2015
PIER 39 comes alive with the vibrant colors of thousands of blooming tulips and seasonal garden favorites throughout both levels of PIER 39. Enjoy daily free, guided landscaping tours beginning at 10am in PIER 39′s Entrance Plaza. Make sure to bring your cameras to capture what’s blooming at PIER 39!
