At the Pier 39
Pier 39 entrance

You are at the very end of Pier 39 - at observation point. Listen carefully, if you click on the left - you will move toward sea lions, if you click on the right - you will move around the pier, if you click in the center - you will see Alcatraz closer.. More instructions below..

Please, be patient, wait while it downloads. It is only 25k for the applet, 10k for a script, 25k for the first picture - about 60k. You will be rewarded with a walk around pier 39 and views from it. It is interactive: to turn right, left, or go forward click on the picture in an appropriate place.
[Esc] - come back,  [z] or [Ctrl] - where can I click?,  [s] - toggle auto guide

   

So, if you went left, you can view Pier 45 and the Golden Gate Bridge, Forbes Island floating lighthouse and arrive to the place where sea lions live. The colony is larger in winter, but in sommer there a lot of animals too.

Farther away you can see Russina Hill and a boat heading to Alcatraz. Continuing a little along the west side of the pier, you enter into the inner passage. There you can come back to the end of the pier or climb at the upper deck. There you can see Wyland store entrance, Neptunes Palace restaurant entrance, Sea Lions Cafe, the Marine Mammal Store, Bubba Gump Shripm Co. restaurnat, Pizza, and many views.

The next pier is Pier 41.

If you turn right.. you can continue along the east side of the pier. There you can see the Bay Bridge, a cruis ship, and passing carousell get to Crystal Geyser stage where a fire juggler performs. Then you come back where you have started - the end of the Pier 39 with a view at Alcatraz and Angel Island.
