Did you know the Wave Organ is an Exploratorium exhibit? Completed by two artists in 1986, it includes 25 organ pipes! Come at high tide when the Wave Organ sounds best. Read more below for more info.

It gets pretty windy, so bring a jacket.

Come at high tide or on a full moon, and you too might hear sounds of the Flying Dutchman trying to send messages to port.

Go when it is high tide for a great tune!

A really romantic spot to sit and listen to & watch the waves crashing.

Being here on a high tide is definitely a must-do, but even when it's not, it's an absolutely beautiful and relatively unknown spot to tourists and locals alike, especially on a nice clear day.

Make sure you visit during tide (no wave concert otherwise) !

You need to enter through the parking lot and surround the bay in order to get there. Didn't hear anything, but it's a nice place to eat lunch and enjoy the view 😅

Fun for kids to climb over. Come at high tide otherwise you miss the show.

Really cool lookout point! Go during high tide to get the best effect.

Visit the other-worldly Wave Organ, located on a jetty at the small Boat Harbor in the Marina district of San Francisco. Through a series of pipes, visitors can listen to the sounds of the Bay.

A 10 minute walk from the parking lot, walk all the way you the end and you'll see it! Doesn't make much sound when it's not high tide...

My favorite place to chill out in the city. Walk or ride your bike here and enjoy the gorgeous 360 views of the San Francisco Bay.

Great view but the organ sucks. Doesn't really work at all.

Don't park in the parking lot closest to the yacht club - it floods @ high tide. Walk all the way to the end of the peninsula past the club to get here.

Basically always breezy. Take a windbreaker or a good coat. Totally great spot for checking out Fourth of July fireworks or watching the Blue Angels during Fleet Week.

This place is awwwesome. Check it out when the tide is coming in.
