29th Anniversary of the Sea Lions’ Arrival

January 19, 2019 - January 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.

Celebrate January 19-20 with free Sea Lion Center Walking Tours given by Aquarium of the Bay naturalists at 12, 2 and 3pm. Tours depart from the Sea Lion Statue, west of the PIER 39 Entrance Plaza. Tour participants also receive a complimentary beverage and special discounts at select PIER 39 businesses.*

Stop by the Sea Lion Center and enjoy these special daily presentations:

  • Party for the Planet Blue – 10:30am
  • What’s for Lunch? – 12:30pm
  • Sea Lion Shenanigans – 2:30pm
