One of San Francisco's Most Unique Venues

Looking for a venue for your next corporate event, wedding, holiday party, or business meeting?

The O'Brien is only one of two remaining fully functional WWII Liberty ships in the world. Moored at Pier 35, The Embarcadero, she is a premier San Francisco attraction with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge, and San Francisco skyline!

Unparalleled Views, Unforgettable Experiences

Sail under the new expansion of the Bay Bridge and back along the San Francisco waterfront the views of the refurbished Pier 1, the Ferry Building, Coit Tower and Twin Peaks. Capacity up to 800 passengers.

Host a Dockside Event on board the O'Brien at Pier 35 with the San Francisco waterfront as your backdrop. The ship's deck is the perfect spot for musical entertainment, a wine tasting or a mix and mingle under the stars.
