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.

  • Great spot to see the wild life though hard to fish due to the sea weed around the pier. But great experience non the less.

  • I enjoyed my visit to cannery row and went here while in the area.i loved how there were so many places to sit around the pier. The bright colors, activity in the bay made the sight seeing enjoyable. I recommend going There if you visit Monterey.

  • Viewed the pier from our whale watching boat, the Princess Monterey. Highly recommend!

  • You can always get some breathtaking shots on the Pier, but they are doing work so you can't get anywhere near the breakwater where the gazillion sea lions are. However, there are always stragglers and the others are a blast b

  • Great place to view the sea lions. We were lucky to see one do a few jumps in the ocean as well!
