Find Your Waterfront

From a sleepy outpost to a bustling waterfront, the Port of San Francisco has always served as the city’s gateway to the Bay Area, the nation, and the world. Over the years, the Port has welcomed treasure seekers in search of riches, immigrants looking for opportunity, and cargoes that established San Francisco as a trading center.

Today, over 24 million people, residents and visitors alike, enjoy the waterfront each year. San Francisco’s waterfront is now home to iconic landmarks, cultural and art destinations, over 500 businesses, and a diverse array of maritime operations. The waterfront also remains a beautiful place for people to connect to the Bay.

The Port of San Francisco's treasured waterfront is vulnerable to hazards including urgent seismic risk and increasing flood risks from sea level rise. To protect this resource for future generations, the Port has established the Waterfront Resilience Program. The Program works to ensure the waterfront, and its important regional and citywide assets, is resilient to hazards—and increasingly accessible to all residents.
