Tips to Make the Most Out of Your Day

Here are some ideas on how I would structure my day with the San Francisco Fishermans Wharf Pass.


  • Hop on/Hop Off: Since this starts before the other activities on this list, I'd hop on the bus tour first.
  • Bay Cruise: You'll have to wait in line here, so it will take you more than 60 minutes. The lines go pretty quickly, but it might take you an additional 30 minutes here as you wait in line.


  • Aquarium of the Bay: Closes around 7pm or 8pm most nights, it closes a little earlier in the winter months and on holidays
  • Wax Museum: Usually open until 9pm during the week and 11pm on weekends, it closes a little earlier on some holidays


  • Cable Car Ride: The cable cars run until late in the evening. It's only a one way ride, so keep this in mind. I'd do this last as the crowds sometimes thin out a little in the evenings.

Have an amazing time on your San Francisco Fishermans Wharf adventure!
