Monterey, California Cruise Port Information

Jewel of the North coast

Dramatic coastline, the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, food fresh from the ocean and a deep historical connection to the arts. The famous Cannery Row, a favorite of author John Steinbeck, is a local wonder full of local shopping, amazing cuisine and a history deeply connected to the waterfront. Not only is Monterey a wonder itself, it is close to the picturesque coastal artist town of Carmel-by-the-Sea and the scenic wild beauty of Big Sur. Monterey is an experience you'll never forget.
