We spent an evening here as we were going whale watching the next day. The wharf has a good range of restaurants and reasonable prices. The whale watching oat trips also go from here so can get quite busy at sailing times. A nice place...More

In the old days they used to sell fish here. Now it is a collection of resturants and tourist shops...still fun to walk down...especially tasting the clam chowder the resturants offer for free to lure you in!

A fun and friendly pier with lots of restaurants and gift shops. Viewing balcony at the end allows good views of the harbour sea lions. A must see when in Monterey Bay.
