Maritime National Historical Park information
Four historic ships are floating museums at this national park, the Wharf’s most authentic attraction. Moored along Hyde St Pier, standouts include the 1891 schooner Alma , 1890 steamboat Eureka , paddlewheel tugboat Eppleton Hall and iron-hulled Balclutha , which brought coal to San Francisco. It’s free to walk the pier; pay only to board ships.
