The newest exhibit to Riverbanks Zoo also makes for an incredible event venue. The exhibit is a remarkable recreation of San Francisco’s famous Pier 39 and features California sea lions and a harbor seal. Sea Lion Landing offers guests spectacular views and varying vantage points for watching these fin-footed favorites in action. Enjoy nose-to-nose encounters through a giant 35-foot-long panoramic window or relax and observe from amphitheater seating, check out incredible indoor sights both underwater and overhead, or get a broader look at the animals’ 250,000-gallon saltwater habitat from The Wharf view on the upper deck. This unique venue is available for private events one hour after the Zoo closes and includes tables, chairs, standard linens, background music, set up, clean up and an event manager. A Sea Lion Landing venue rental can be expanded to include Entry Plaza and accommodate up to 400 guests.
