I highly recommend the Sea Car Tour. It’s located in Portola Hotel walking distance from cruise port. You can rent the little yellow car for $65 for one hour. The GPS that comes with the car guides you to several points of interest. It attracts a lot of attends your drives it around town.

They have to use tenders to get to the city. Beautiful place. Walked down the wharf and around the town.

We love Monterey and there is much to see there, the aquarium, Carmel, Pebble Beack, 17 mile drive. However I believe that because this was a relocation cruise Celebrity's excursion department didn't have established relationsjips with shore vendors, hence there were some issues. Monterey is a tender port and after tendering to shore our group waited over an hour on the dock in a cold, damp mist. We were told there simply were'nt enough buses. How can that be you know how many tickets you've sold ? Once on a bus our guide was amazing and she made up for the bad start with her wit, humor and knowledge she was absolutley superb. However upon retruning to the ship we found that others had been crammed onto shore excursion busess some folks even having to stand during portions of their drives.

No excursion. Just wandered the pier and had a very nice lunch. Since the rental scooter could not go on a tender, it was the best we could do. One more reason to have bought the folding scooter. Hopefully can go on a tender on our next cruise.

Always fun to visit Cannery row. Easy to walk to from the tender dock on fisherman's wharf.
