Peer at Wildlife

The Coast Guard Pier features a 1700-foot breakwater that guards the north side of Harbor Marina. It was built during the early 1930s and is used as the home port for the 110-foot U.S. Coast Guard Cutter LONG ISLAND.

You can enjoy the U.S. Coast Guard Pier from sunrise to sunset. It is a great spot for viewing wildlife, such as seabirds, sea lions, harbor seals, and sea otters. Fishing is also permitted on the north side of the breakwater.

Utrip Tips

*Local Expert Thom Diggins says: "Walk out to the end of the pier to see and hear hundreds of sea lions basking and barking. Along the way, see Monterey’s fire boat, several Coast Guard vessels and many hopeful fishing lines in the water. There is a good chance scuba divers will be in the water just a few yards from the rocks below."
