Old Fisherman’s Wharf


Old Fishermans Wharf Monterey Bay, California, USAIf you’re visiting Monterey, something that should be on your “must-do” list is the Old Fisherman’s Wharf. Built in 1870 for passenger and freight service, it has grown into a great place to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of Monterey. The wharf is lined with seafood restaurants ranging from casual to formal indoor dining with views of the bay. While sampling the tastes from local restaurants, take the time to enjoy watching the local wildlife: the sea lions lounging on rocks while otters splash and play in the calm harbor waters.

Feeling adventurous? Take to the waters with a glass bottom boat tour, deep-sea fishing trip, or whale watching tour. Experience the tranquil beauty of whale watching, a year round treat on the wharf. Many tours are very family friendly and some are narrated by marine biologists with at least 10 years of experience on the Bay.

Enjoy exploring the gift shops, jewelry stores, art galleries, and candy shops. A favorite activity on the wharf for both tourists and locals is sailing on the Monterey Bay along Cannery Row. Monterey Bay Sailing offers daily sailing cruises year round, including romantic dinner cruises and fun family adventures.

Nestled upstairs in a building near the tip of the Wharf lays the Wharf Theater. The theater has been in operation since 1976 and includes productions of dramas, musicals, comedies, and radio and Broadway reviews.

Got your kids along with you? Grab some memories by having your family brought to life in a caricature or letting your kids get their face painted. Bring out the inner kid in you by grabbing some freshly spun salt water taffies or enjoying some kettle corn fresh from the popper.

If you know you’ll be in the area, sign up for some free coupons to be sent to your e-mail address to help you plan your trip.  Don’t forget to check out Believe Inn for all of your hotel needs.
