My second visit here, the setting really does make it with great views of the city skyline and the GG bridge but the whole pier is full of history. The ships are amazing, from different era's and purposes, I especially like Eureka the ferry. Run...More

Tours are limited and have limited information. Day I went, two boats unavailable. Possibly the most interesting was the old ferry, which at least had some historical context to the exhibit. The schooner was a throwaway, the tug was in between. I don't remember this...More

Stopped off at this area for a time with my wife whilst we were having a stroll along The Embarcadero, exploring the piers, and having a look at what other attractions were on offer in the vicinity.
We didn't pay to go on the ships,...More

Packed with family-friendly entertainment, quality hotels, and good food, there’s something for everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf. From street performers and historic cable cars to art galleries and museums, a postcard-worthy photo is available on every corner. Bring your appetite: seafood lovers will be rewarded with Dungeness crab and sourdough bread bowls, while Ghirardelli Square will satiate anyone’s sweet tooth
after a day at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to say hello to the adorable sea lions that make this neighbourhood a true San Francisco treat.

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.
