  • Well worth the effort to get here - public transit got us close but last section is a cold and windy walk! The concept is neat and although the place could use some TLC, I'm glad we went.  more »
  • It's rather unique but you will only hear the "notes" at a high tide. It's a shame about the graffiti and the difficulty in finding the venue. It is still worth a visit as it is so very different.  more »
  • The wave organ is cool and we have brought people here many times. It's a nice walk there, beautiful views, fresh air, and special sounds when you arrive and immerse yourself in this funky mix of huma...  more »

  • You can miss it if you don't know it's there! Nice view on both Golden Bridge and Alcatraz. Great place on a windy day!
  • Super cool to see. Great for kids to play near. I enjoyed and was happy that my cousin brought me here to experience San Fran water and art. I would recommend a stop here.
  • Very unique and artistic. Looks almost like an ancient ruins. Love the pipe concept to hear the water movement.
  • Hugely helpful tip, GPS your way to the Golden Gate Yacht Club. There is parking down there by the small brick lighthouse. Then you walk out on the jetty to find the Wave Organ. Really get down and put your ear near the pipes. Each one sounds a little bit different. The views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, Golden Gate Bridge, and of downtown San Francisco are incredible out there. It can get windy, but its a wonderful walk.
  • So cool! Best heard durning high tide on a full moon, but cool to visit during the day even though you may not hear the pipes.
