Tendered in early so we could have breakfast on the pier. Beautiful scenery and lots of clam chowder samples, lol. We just walked along the sea wall and enjoyed the surroundings.


This was a tender port and it was nice that the tender took us directly to the pier at the Old Fishermans Wharf. Lots of cute shops and incredible ocean front restaurants. We took a taxi to Cannery Row and spent a few hours tasting flights of wine and eating baked Brie at a Taste of Monterey. A very nice day.


We took a ship excursion to the Aquarium and the Carmel Mission. Both were entertaining. There is plenty of time to explore the Aquarium and the town of Monterey before boaring the bus and heading to the Mission. The drive to the mission is so scenic and the rugged shoreline you are traveling alongside is truly beautiful. We saw whales in the Bay which added to the fun.

Movie tour excursion was great! My husband was less than thrilled at my excursion choice, but in the end he loved it and was recommending it to others. We had the privilege of having the movie tour company owner as our guide! Many beautiful photo stops and time to walk around Pebble Beach golf course. Monterey was quaint...we enjoyed the cannery, local pizza place, and an ice cream shop. Kept our eyes open for a chance Clint Eastwood sighting. Didn't see him though.
