At the end of this pier there are views of Pier 45 and Castagnola's restaurant, fishing boats, and Alioto's and Tarantino's restaurants. But if you do not go there, and turn left instead, and then left again, you'll turn out to be at Jefferson heading east. You will be able to walk in the row of infinite crab and seafood shops, see the main Fisherman's Wharf sign, pass Fishermen's Grotto No.9, get to Bay Cruise and Ferry Terminal of Red and White Fleet, and continue north to east part of Pier 45 or east toward Pier 41.
