The 99th Opening Day on the BAY Celebration
Since 1917, the annual celebration of the maritime community has heralded the return of sailing season for sailors all over the bay area. Traditionally held on the last Sunday in April, scheduled activities include the “Blessing of the Fleet” sponsored by the Corinthian Yacht Club, an opening day parade (The parade can be viewed along the San Francisco shoreline from Crissy Field to Pier 39 and runs from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.).
There are several ways to participate even if you do not have a boat or friends with boats. You can grab a front row seat at Pier 39! You can go sailing on one of the many charter vessels that regularly sail out of Pier 39. We have many options available, from a $10 city front tour to chartering your own private vessel! Check out our Charter Vessels for Hire and see what’s available!
Don't Call Them "Seals"! Check out the Sea Lion Cam at K-Dock!
The first few sea lions hauled out on the West Yacht Harbor's K-Dock shortly after the 1989 earthquake.
By January of 1990 PIER 39 Marina had almost 800 animals frolicking around K-Dock in the water and on the boat slips.
Eventually, we relinquished K-Dock, relocated the boats and converted the boat slips to accommodate the Sea Lions in their chosen haul out site.
