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.
Celebrate with freeSea Lion Encounter Walking Tours given by Aquarium of the Bay naturalists. Tour participants also receive a complimentary beverage and special discounts at select PIER 39 businesses.
