Super packed year round with tourists and cheap crap being sold everywhere. The sea-lions are the main attraction.

I last visited Fisherman's Wharf in the 1980's and this year took my wife back to see what I remembered as a real example of a working fishing port and although, even then, the tourist aspect was creeping in, it still had charm and character...More

The whole area is a bit tack - yet it is also vibrant and interesting. It’s a place that disappoints and delights in equal measure. You cannot leave the Wharf without sampling the food - so much to choose from and if you love fish,...More

I believe its Pier 39 near the boats for Alcatraz. There's some rides and shops and if you walk behind the stores along the water, you will catch the seals basking on some wood floats.
