Torpedo Wharf is a wharf in the Presidio of San Francisco, in the U.S. state of California. The site has been a wharf since 1854, and earned its current name when the United States Army built a naval mine depot c. 1907–1909. The current wharf was established in 1941, and now serves as a popular tourist destination.Plan my day in San Francisco using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
Torpedo Wharf reviews
If you want to take a panorama of the bridge and the city, this is the spot. It’s also a fishing spot so make sure you don’t wear your fancy heels or shoes walking around. more »
On a recent visit before our cruise, we enjoyed a visit through both vessels near the wharf. The history is interesting, informative and well worth the price of admission more »
Really nice spot especially if you want to fish. Nice cool breeze, great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city. Lots of people come here to hang out.
A really nice view of the Golden Gate can be seen from here. Took some photos and selfies from there! There's even a gift shop nearby.
