There is a big difference between Pier 39 and the Fishermans Wharf. Looks like it is in the midst of a renewal as a few restaurants are being knocked down or remodeled. Definitely the older of the Piers... lots of "value" souvenirs in this part...More

The Wharf is a great place to spend the day. There are tons of restaurants, bars and shopping options. This area is great during the day and in the evening too.

Fisherman's wharf has changed. It is so crowded, loud and busy that it only for the young and fearless now. I wish we had avoided. The stalls of seafood have lines with 40 people or more. We were lucky to find a more expensive restaurant...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.
