Time Estimate

If you want to stroll around the pier, plus visit some shops and get something to eat, give yourself at least two hours, plus travel time. So you will realistically need at least a 4 hour layover for this excursion. On planning for your return trip to LAX, don't forget to allow an additional hour to get through security and walking through the terminal at LAX.
