Barbary Coast Trail Walking Tour: Stevedores, Feluccas, and Windjammers

Take a free walking tour with the San Francisco Historical Society, and explore San Francisco's past as a port city.

Learn about the history of the city's waterfront, from the days of sail to the era of the longshoremen. Begin at the Great Seawall, San Francisco's largest public works project, and follow the waterfront to Fisherman's Wharf, past two WWII vessels and the Hyde Street Pier, home to the country's largest collection of historic ships. The tour ends at Aquatic Park.


Meet at the intersection of The Embarcadero and Kearny Street, on the bay side.
