26th Anniversary of the Sea Lions’ Arrival

January 2016

In January, PIER 39 will celebrate the 26th anniversary of the sea lions’ arrival to PIER 39.  The sea lions began arriving in droves shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake hit San Francisco in October 1989.  With a protected environment and a plentiful supply of food from the Bay, the sea lions quickly decided to make PIER 39’s K-Dock their new home. Crowds will gather to celebrate these playful mammals on PIER 39 with Sea Lion Encounter Walking Tours, refreshments, special discounts, and more.
