Fees & Passes


A ticket is needed for entrance to the historic vessels on Hyde Street Pier. The cost is $10.00 per person and the ticket is good for seven days. Entrance to the ships is free for supervised children 15 years of age and younger. The ticket booth is located on the pier. An annual pass is available for $40.00.

It is now possible to purchase electronic passes for entrance to the ships through the park's authorized electronic pass vendor, Viply LLC. Viply has created an app allowing park visitors to purchase their passes from their smartphones. The app currently runs on iOS (soon to be on Android) and enables users to purchase any number of weekly passes or SAFR annual park passes. (Remember, children 15 years or younger accompanied by an adult do not need an entry ticket.) To board the ships, please check in and scan the electronic pass at the Hyde Street Pier ticket booth.

There is no charge when visiting on one of the fee-free days. For more information, call the visitor center at 415-447-5000.
