Tour-goers learn about the elements that made Monterey Bay one of the biggest fishing ports in the world. Throughout the 2- to 2.5-hour tour, the knowledgeable guide regales visitors with stories about the area’s potpourri of cultures, including whalers from the Azores, squid fisherman from China, and salmon fisherman from Japan. Tours meet inside the lobby of the InterContinental The Clement Monterey hotel.
Monterey's Waterfront & Cannery Row Tour
Perched at the helm of Monterey's Waterfront & Cannery Row Tour, author, historian, and fourth-generation Monterey native Tim Thomas leads tour-goers on a voyage back through time. He enlightens groups on the area's past, stopping frequently to appreciate the people and occupations that have made the bay a cultural cornucopia. Fisheries seize the spotlight during the primary tour, which focuses on Monterey's ascension as one of the world's biggest fishing ports because of its fishermen's ability to talk the salmon into jumping into the boats. By special arrangement, tour-takers can also reel in facts during a jaunt through Nihonmachi—or Japan Town—or a spooky-story-packed exploration of the Monterey Cemetery.
