This is a Monterey not-so-hidden surprise! But we’ll get to that. So, extending 1700 feet out into the bay, this pier is super popular among fishermen. Publicly accessible during the day, it’s when you properly venture out onto the pier that you see who it really belongs to sea lions in the hundreds, basking on the rocks, flopped out and lazing in the sun. Also easily visible are rookeries, otters and harbour seals. On the water you’ll find a bunch of egrets and pelicans. There’s a nice collection of tables over looking the water we encourage you to have a picnic there. It’s great place for families and romantics alike.

You can actually replicate this same experience, albeit with more dining options, at the Old Fisherman’s Wharf, which is only a short 10 minute walk away by foot along the Recreational Trail.

Coast Guard Pier And Old Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey Reviews - Write a Review

  • This has been the highlight of our trip to Monterey so far. Walked to the end of the pier to find so many sea lions. It was incredible. The view is really nice from here as well.

  • Doesn't look inviting at first but good views and if timing right very close up views of seals. If you like viewing wildlife can be amazing.

  • The place to go to see sea lions ! Also great to walk near the harbor and connects to a larger trail.

  • Great spot to see sea lions and cormorants, who congregate at the end of the pier, as well as along the rocks lining the sides. Be sure to look over the side on your walk out there, you'll be amazed how close they are.

  • Great view, amazing place to see the sea lions, and sea otters.
