It was a tender port. We had just visited, so I just went in for some raw oysters. Big and yummy. If you take an excursion, check out the state park along the coast.

We walked to the aquarium and paid them directly. Great aquarium. We also paid to do the "Feed the Fish" tour. It was a behind the scenes tour and experience. We loved it.

Did not take a tour. Just went to the Pier and shopped for a while. Not much to do if you don't take a tour and the one we wanted to take got sold out.

No transportation from dock to Cannery Row and Aquarium. The city is not interested in having tourist from cruise ship industry. Some locations increased prices.

The port is the near the very old Seaport area. They have a wonderful walking paths and through the older part of town they have a walking tour with medallions built into the sidewalks so you don’t get lost. We found it to be very friendly and we had drinks on the pier on the way back to the ship that were very good and reasonably priced. Read Less

We did not take a ship excursion. Instead we walked down the path to the Monterey Aquarium. It is a bit of a hike (1.5 miles) but good exercise with a gorgeous view. The aquarium was wonderful. We made it in time for penguin feeding. The jellyfish exhibit was amazing. I was disappointed they did not have more mammals (only a few sea otters, no sea lions, seals, or dolphins) but they did have lots of touch tanks! If traveling with kids, they will love it! Read Less

We walked down to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We would have appreciated a shuttle, but none was available. The aquarium was excellent - one of the highlights of our cruise.

There is a free shuttle offered by the ship to the shopping district. We rode it and walked around the streets before returning to the ship.
