A Spring Visit to Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey

A Spring Visit to Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey

Media Trip

Have you ever been to Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey? My previous visits have been in the Summer when the wharf is filled with crowds and full of excitement. This time I visited Fisherman’s Wharf on a Spring weekday for a totally different experience. It was peaceful and relaxing for a different type of fun.

There was plenty of space in the parking lot, so I got a space right up front. A combination of tourists and locals was there to wander and enjoy the warm weather and beautiful sights. Sea lions entertained passersby as they played in the shallow water near the shore.

The wharf is filled with shops, restaurants and is the starting point for activities such as whale watching tours and glass bottom boat rides. Many of the shops were having sales on Monterey branded clothing and souvenirs. Local seafood, clam chowder and treats, like fresh pulled salt water taffy are abundant. Many of the restaurants offered samples and had happy hour food and drink specials to entice customers. I had a great time wandering around.

There were a few street performers entertaining people near the walkways. I also visited Dali17, the new Salvador Dali gallery that is home to the largest private Dali collection in the United States.

It’s been fun to go to Fisherman’s Wharf in the Summer, but Spring just may be my favorite time to enjoy this beautiful place!

    I was there a few years ago and it was such a delight to see all of the sea lions sunning themselves on the rocks.

    This looks like a great place to visit during a non busy time of the year. We live near a coast and a harbor but we have nothing like this. We have gone too commercial. I like the quaintness of this wharf with the clam chowder and bread bowls.

    It’s been 30 years since I felt the salt in the air and fishy smell at Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey. and watch the sea lions frolic and sun themselves on the piers.

    I think you need an award for any and all of your photos. I’d love to live near something like this. Gracie and I would walk this all the time.
