Sea lions take hike from Hyde Street Pier

Most of the sea lions lurking on the docks at the Hyde Street Pier have left, but the 200-feet worth of mesh barriers will stay put to help ensure they don’t come back.

Instead of more than 100 basking where the commercial boats dock, Port spokeswoman Renee Martin said now there are only about 10.

Martin said there’s no way to tell if the barriers, that didn’t cost a whole lot because they were fabricated in-house, made them leave or if it was just their time to migrate.

However she did say they’re still swarming PIER 39, and since they have a habit of returning, the barriers will stay put for a while.
