The Maritime Museum, anchored with the Hyde Street Pier, makes for a wonderful visit to the city. A floating piece of history that you can soak in. A visit to San Francisco is incomplete without visiting the ships at the pier!
The Hyde Street pier seems to be the center of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. There are historical ships, workshop demonstration, and a few things to show about maritime life for everyone. In addtion, visitors can see a good view of the Golden...More
An under-promoted gem of the Hyde St Pier, the 100-plus year-old scow schooner Alma sails regularly around the Bay. Don’t miss it! You’ll be sailing on a vintage restored vessel that I feel offers the smoothest bay sailing tour around (its a long, wide, flat...More

Great that you're travelling with your dog. We had to leave our dog at home (I'm living in Europe), so we were without dog. But the area in front of the Pier is kind of a small park, so should be perfect for a dog, lots of grass and some trees/bushes. Thinking of a day with a dog this area should be perfect for a walk even with dog. I'm not sure if you can take the dog into the National Historic Park (can't believe this), but starting your day in this area outside the Pier is fine.
