Monterey's Harbor, Marina, Fisherman's Wharf I and the Commercial Wharf II
Historic Monterey Harbor is located in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, the largest Marine Sanctuary in the world. Monterey Bay provides a natural setting for the Monterey Harbor and the Monterey Municipal Marina. Located in the City of Monterey along Del Monte Avenue, the Harbor and Marina provide access to a variety of recreational, as well as, commercial opportunities for residents and visitors alike in this scenic setting.
A part of the Harbor, the Marina has become a destination in and of itself as people travel from miles around to launch their boats for fishing or leisure purposes. The Harbormaster, under policy direction from the City Council, continues to improve rules and regulations, allowing for even greater access to the area.
Thank you for visiting our web pages. We look forward to being of service during your visit, and we invite you to get to know your Harbor and its employees and to come visit.
