San Francisco Cruise Terminal
The San Francisco cruise terminal is at Pier 35. Fisherman's Wharf is within walking distance. The nearby Pier 39 has lots of stores and restaurants.
A new cruise terminal is planned for Pier 27. It will be longer and have increased passenger capacity. There will also be a public plaza at the end of the pier on the Embarcadero Promenade. The new terminal is scheduled to open in spring of 2014.
San Francisco Cruise Parking and Directions
Three companies have parking garages close to the cruise terminal. The Port Authority has San Francisco cruise parking information.
If you are being picked up from the cruise terminal, meet your car somewhere other than in front of the pier. The traffic gets hopelessly snarled there. Walk a block or two to get away from the jam.
The San Francisco Airport is about 15 miles outside the city. Take a taxi or shuttle directly to the port.
