Pier 39 is celebrating its 39th year and the famous San Francisco sea lions are a big part of the festivities.

According to Pier 39's website, the sea lion population can increase up to 900, most of which are male. It's no surprise that we caught them barking, playing and at times appearing to fight on the K-Dock.
