Maritime National Historical Park

The Marina, Fisherman’s Wharf & the Piers

Five historic ships are floating museums at this maritime national park, Fisherman's Wharf’s most authentic attraction. Moored along Hyde St Pier, the three most interesting are the 1891 schooner Alma, which hosts guided sailing trips in summer; 1890 steamboat Eureka; and iron-hulled Balclutha, which brought coal to San Francisco. It’s free to walk the pier; pay only to board ships.
