About Coast Guard Pier And Old Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey

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

  • I walked here last year in August. It was a good place to take a walk. You can hear sea lions at a distance. Bring a camera and depending on the weather, you may need a sweater or light jacket because it does get breezy in the evenings.

  • Good place to fish or just kick back an you don't need a fishing lisanes it man made

  • The sign reads, enter at your own risk. Certainly found it to be a risk worth taking. The ocean was calm but the sea lions weren't. Sounds of their barks bounced off the water for miles. Totally worth it! Jelly and star fish were just two of the many sea critters we witnessed on this little trek. Loved it!

  • From high in the hills above, within the Steinbeck Cottage, when the Monterey Bay mist rolled in and the night was still, we heard a honking and hoarse barking from the direction of below that intrigued us. We thought it was some form of fog-horn. Perhaps ropes straining on vessels riding at anchor. Some trope of motor horn popular with the younger set, possibly. The honking and barking were still there next morning, when the fog had cleared and the Southern California sun sparkled on the passion-flowers in Pacific Grove gardens, so we set out to solve the mystery. Canny sonic detective work and dedicated sauntering led us to the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail, thence via Cannery Row to the US Coast Guard Pier, where the honking was loudest, though not connected, we understand, with protecting the coast. The Coast Guard pier has a walking side and a mooring side. Below the pier is the gathering place of California Sea Lions, purveyors of honking and barking to the carriage trade. At the western extremity of the pier, fenced off, and no wonder, is a colony of Brandt’s Cormorants, squabblers and shriekers, all orders promptly attended to. Both species can be observed lolling and rolling and paddling and diving in the blue-green, bronze-kelped water of the Bay from the western end of the pier’s walking side, and from our limited observation of the Monterey locale, this is much the best place to admire them. The mooring side has an abundance of service boats, plus ramshackle sheds, weathered planks, masts, banners, oars and spars and similar maritime paraphernalia. This forms the best spectacle for sea-side sauntering, we feel. A too-tidy wharf is an unrewarding vista. For any connoisseur of signage, the Coast Guard Pier offers an abundance of signage. Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign. None of their messages spoiled our pleasure, for we are naturally compliant folk. The concourse at the entrance to the pier offers some parking, and yes, toilets. There is some sort of food shop, but we didn’t explore it. We were there to identify the source of various honkings heard from above during a fog, and we would rather go hungry than be deflected from our purpose.

  • Ugly little pear, but apparently popular place to fish. Convenient parking adjacent to the pier. Facing into Monterey Bay, the right side of the pier is blocked off for government property. The left side of the pier is open for viewing and fishing. Not a great view from this location.
