Worth the walk. Be sure and check the tides- you won't hear much if it's low!

    We went to The Wave Organ as I seen it on TripAdvisor. It was pouring down rain and it was quite a walk from the parking lot. As we got closer there was parking and handicap parking past the Yacht C...

    Interesting

    Enjoyed our stop to see and hear the wave organ. Fun and interesting concept and structure. Nice short walk along the bay to reach to wave organ. Lovely view of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.

    No noise from the organ

    Kind of a disappointing. It was really wavy but no sounds were coming out of the pipes. The walk out was nice and so was the view just don't expect to hear any noise

    Good place to visit if you are nearby

    A hidden jewel on the shore of San Francisco Bay. Great view of the bay, and you can see Alcatraz. There is nothing much to do, but worth a visit if you are close to the Palace of Fine Arts.

Additional Information

Introduction

Built for the most part out of stone, the Wave Organ channels the music of the ocean, and merges it with sounds gathered from land and then amplifies the harmony through acoustic technology. A jetty near San Francisco's Exploratorium contains this product created through a collaboration between artist Peter Richards and sculptor George Gonzales. Stones used in the construction were sourced from a cemetery dating from the Gold Rush times. The construction features a series of pipes that all copy the appearance and function of a church organ. The climax of this natural symphony occurs at dawn, as high tide approaches. Come up to one of the listening stations to awaken with nature and revel in the sacred, hypnotic auditory fusion of land and sea.
