Fisherman’s Wharf, Monterey

Old Fisherman’s Wharf, Monterey, Calfornia

There are two “fisherman’s wharves” in Monterey – the “new” wharf, from which fishing boats (like the General Pershing) work (and where you can actually buy fish), and the “old” wharf, pictured above, which has become a tourist attraction. The two wharves are within sight of each other, and are separated by a marina.

The old wharf was used as a wholesale fish market as late as the 1960s. Now, Fisherman’s Wharf is lined with seafood restaurants (ranging from casual dining in the open air, to formal indoor dining with views of Monterey Bay,  as well as many places to buy souvenirs and gifts. Whale-watching tours leave from the wharf, and you can get “up-close-and-personal” (not *too* close) :-) with the many sea lions that visit the wharf.
