29th Anniversary of the Sea Lions’ Arrival

January 19-20, 2019

Join us to celebrate the 29th 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.

Join us from January 19-20 to celebrate with free Sea Lion Encounter Walking Tours. Tour participants also receive a free beverage and special discounts at select PIER 39 businesses.**  Check back for more information.
