Old Fisherman's Wharf, Montery


Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, California with restaurants, galleries, gift shops, etc.

"A Little Bit of History"

By 1920 the Wharf served as location for warehouses, wholesale and retail fish outlets, a marine service station, a restaurant, and an abalone shell grinding business. Fisherman's Wharf was converted to a tourist-oriented operation when sardines began to disappear during the World War II. Now thousands of visitors enjoy the Wharf's many restaurants, gift shops, art galleries, tackle and bait shops, fishing, whale watching harbor cruise and party boat concessions. There is Wharf Theater which present plays throughout the year.
