Our favorite thing about our least favorite place, Fisherman's Wharf, are the sea lions that own Pier 39. Hidden on the left side of Pier 39 (enourmous shopping mall) are hundreds of sea lions basking in the sun. They have taken over a marina that held boats and are an incredible natural attraction.

Just walk to the end of Pier 39 on the left side along the backs of the stores and behold the sea lions. They lie there, in the sun and bark- arf arf! Many people crowd around to see the sea lions, but many others never even realize they are there. If you visit the wharf, don't miss the sea lions!

Tacky and over-priced, but clever -- we noticed this mini bungee jumping for kids on our last hideous visit to Fisherman's Wharf. For $6, your child can be suspended from elastic cords and jump on a trampoline. Stupid as this sounds, it is a pretty cool thing -- also just to the left of Pier 39 in the courtyard area. The ride is called "Fearless Flyer" and it was very fun for kids as shown above.
