Permits & Reservations


For information on permits for filming, events and other special uses at Fort Point visit the Golden Gate National Recreation Area Permits page.

Permits may be required for filming and still photography that will affect the experience of other visitors, however individuals taking still photos in public areas without props, sets, or models do not require a permit.


Reservations are required for the Fort's Pier Crabbing Demonstration in the summer and Candlelight Tours in the winter. Programs fill quickly, so call early.

Fort Point Pier Crabbing Demonstrations and Fort Point Candlelight Tours are not being scheduled at this time.

Check the Guided Tours page for more on future Pier Crabbing and Candlelight Tour dates.
