Discover a fantastic fleet of historic ships. Sail around San Francisco Bay on a 60-foot schooner from 1891. Enjoy beautiful views of Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Sausalito from Aquatic Park Cove. Explore the Bay Area’s seafaring past at the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, located in a unique waterfront venue at Hyde Street Pier on Fisherman’s Wharf.

Start your trip back in time at the Visitor’s Center, where you can learn about special interactive programs. Haul lines, squeeze into tiny cabins, polish brass, and tend the steam engines. Tour an incredible collection of six historic vessels, including a sailboat, steam tugboat, paddlewheel tugboat, and ferryboat. For trips on the 1891 scow schooner Alma, be sure to make your reservations in advance.

Find impressive exhibits in the San Francisco Maritime Museum, which is located in the historic Aquatic Park Bathhouse Building. Stroll out onto Aquatic Park Pier (built in 1929) and imagine what life used to be like on the San Francisco waterfront.
