Sea Lion Anniversary at PIER 39

This January, PIER 39 celebrates the 26th 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.
